STATE POLICE

The Pennsylvania State Police is seeking donations of a few good horses, of quiet, sound dispositions and free of serious stable vices, to supplement the force’s 26-horse mounted patrol unit stabled at the Academy in Hershey. The equines will be used statewide for searches, crowd control, security and patrol operations in remote areas, and participation in parades, demonstrations and other community events.

Horses must be geldings between the ages of 5 and 15 years old and between 16 hands (5 foot 4 inches at the shoulder) and (less than) 18 hands tall. Drafts and draft-crosses are preferred.

To arrange a donation, or for more information, contact Corporal Carrie Neidigh at 717-533-3463 or email cneidigh@pa.gov.
