From March 2016, communities across Gloucestershire may have seen police officers on horseback patrolling the local area. This is a trial to see how mounted officers can best work to serve the county and work alongside the rest of the police force.
On Thursday they were on patrol in Newtown and took the time to visit our school. The children were excited to be able to meet the horses - Boris & Barton - and the mounted police officers.
Visit their Twitter page @GlosHorsePol to see more photos of their visit.
