Such a touching moment! 😢😢
A police officer stayed with his horse partner until the very end after she was hit by a truck. The Houston policeman, was on the back of his horse when the horse was spooked by a cement lorry. She was struck and laid motionless on the road.
The policeman, who needed medical attention, cradled Charlotte’s head and stroked her as she slipped away. He was taken to the hospital and is recovering well. Houston Police Department said, “Charlotte came to HPD as an unstarted two-year-old Tennessee Walker from Oklahoma.
She thrived in HPD Mounted Patrol’s barefoot and natural horsemanship programs. She passed her evaluation period with flying colors and was working the streets of downtown Houston within a short time of being started under saddle. She loved her job and was always ready to go to work putting bad guys in jail or giving nuzzles to children. She served the citizen of Houston for four years. She will be missed.”
