Sheriff Swears In The Littlest Police Horses



Gunner and Sammy are two rescued miniature horses who live at Rocking Horse Ranch (RHR) in Greenville. The two police horses joined the sheriff’s office on Thursday — to serve a very special role.

As therapy animals, they’re going to help victims of domestic violence and people who have witnessed traumatic events heal from their pain.

“A miniature horse is so incredibly approachable,” Malaika Albrecht, the executive director of RHR, told The Dodo. “We know that stress and blood pressure lowers when people come in contact with therapy animals. With a mini horse, there’s none of that fear you might get from a 1,000-pound horse.”

Gunner and Sammy will be helping a whole new group of people who can benefit from the love and connection with an animal.

“My hope is that Sammy and Gunner, who were rescued from sadness and trauma, will touch the lives of others who are also suffering,” Hart told The Dodo.
