State Police Looking for Equine Donations

(MENAFNEditorial) HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania State Police is once again looking for a few good horses.

The force's 26-horse mounted patrol unit is seeking donations of horses to be used statewide for searches, crowd control, security, and patrol operations of remote areas. As a secondary function, the animals participate in parades, demonstrations, and other community events.

Horses must be geldings between the ages of 5 and 15 years old. The horse must stand at least 16 hands tall (5 foot 4 inches at the shoulder) and less than 18 hands tall. Drafts and draft-crosses are preferred. Thoroughbreds and other "hot bloods" are less desirable.

The animals must have quiet, sound dispositions and be free of serious stable vices. Horses will be accepted on a 120-day trial basis to determine their suitability. A veterinary examination will also be performed.

The Pennsylvania State Police maintains a stable at the Academy in Hershey and relies on donations for animals.

To arrange a donation or get more information, please contact Corporal Carrie Neidigh at 717-533-3463 or .
