Police Horses Visit Coloma!


During the Easter holidays, eleven of Coloma’s Police Cadets were treated to a visit to the school by two beautiful working police horses – chestnut-coloured Kennedy aged 14 years and Excalibur, a huge, black old-timer aged 20. 

The horses are from the mounted branch of the Metropolitan Police, based at Lewisham and were accompanied by their handlers, PC Amanda Doble and PC Paul Looker. Kennedy and Excalibur are employed regularly at football matches, in crowd control, on riot duty and also as a visible police presence on the streets.

The girls were very excited about seeing the magnificent horses up close and hearing about the work they do in often very difficult situations.
