I will admit to having jumped quickly on the Polite/Police bandwagon because I believe that if anything makes a speeding driver think twice and slow down when they see a horse and rider/leader, then it is a good thing.
Today, Floss, my youngest came home so she accompanied me on my daily trudge. Ever one for hi-viz, I gave her my new Polite waiscoat and BeAnne wore her harness, with me in my usual orange jacket.
Obviously my “Polite” horse took his job very seriously. There was a thorough search….
Constant Surveillance ….
…. leading to an Arrest
The Police dog was responsible for Crowd Control and Dispersal.
What can I say? If the Police seriously think that folk are fooled by a fat hairy Icelandic horse being led or even ridden by one of their officers on a single track road in the middle of nowhere, then good luck to them.
I think we looked very smart and rather like we knew what we were doing, which makes a pleasant change!
BeAnne and Haakon – enjoy the ride!
