The Dallas Police Department Mounted Unit, along with officers from McKinney Police, and the Texas Department of Public Safety received training this week from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Sergeant Major Marc Godue and Corporal Merve Head traveled to Dallas to provide the three day training course hosted by the Dallas Police Department Mounted Unit.
The RCMP and the Dallas Police Department Mounted Unit have had a working relationship for several decades now. A Dressage Clinic was put on for the mounted officers. For those who don’t know, Dressage is a style of riding that Sgt. Godue and Corporal Head instruct on. Both Sgt. Godue and Corporal Head are members of the Musical Ride.
For information on the The Musical Ride, visit their website.
