But Few Horses Fitted for the
Work, Most of Them Lack

McKenna, Head of th5 Department

a low, red building, facing the beauti
ful south meadow, and shaped like a
horseshoe, are the stables of the mounted
police of the park department. Their oo
cup'ants are twonty-four of the finest horses
of their sort in the whole world.
There'is not a horse in these stalls that is
anota life saver. If the Humane society
were to bestow its medals upon four-footed
as well as two-footed heroes those horses
would be spangled with decorations.
During a recent visit to the stables
toundeman John MoKenna, the head of
the mounted force, told me something of
how these horses are trained, and also illus
trated some points in the process for an
artist who was with me.
Severnl of the two dozen horses have
been with the fo:ca ever since runaway
stopping was made a part of the police
duty. Of these John Wileon's "Dick" is
the most famous. lHe is a noble creature
and took the second prize at the Madison
Square Garden Horse show. "J)ick" has
probably saved more lives than aely half
dozen surfmen.
There are eight new horses added to the
force every year upon an average. Of these,
four are finally rejected. They a;o cow
ardly, afraid to rush in whero death is
often to be met. It is with horsis as with
men. Your heroes are born, not madoe.
The green horses come on the force uaon
trial. This lasts .two months.
The first work of the trainer is to accns
tom them to the saddle and rider. '|'T[i
are then taken into the park and walked to
and fro midway between the upward and
downward lines of carriages, oartls e11nd
wagone. This is done to familiarize thin,
with nmetropolitan life-to the presence of
many vehioles-so that when a reuaweyr
does occur they will pay as little attention
to the crowd and rush of men and tennis at
a down-town man does to a street flight.
This trl.ssnd discipline of nerves may re
quire weeks, and cannot be dispensed with.
After the recruits have been taugh4 to
look upon amaovig, hurrying crowd as
merely "an orinaty ispoident, the active;
work is r egn'. This is' he way Rounds
man MoeK dl goes about'it. He trbotihis
greibn hrse hy the side of other liorses
'which aie in hirness. Alfter he finds that
his h'ise will go well-mihd the bridle and
spur-he begins.the thifd lesson.
He seehoes the eo-opefition of some
horsemap who exercises his horse in the
parkeearly in the day when the drives are
omnaparatively deserte'd. He suddenly
rides up olose to his ffieei'd's horse aid in

the bit-about six iluites from it. He re

times each day; until his steed learns
what is exiected of him and will obey at a

with a rider who rides at full speed; he

Only one saddle horse out of two picked
animals pSoves to be suited to shch service.
All this is but preliminary practice; the
real -training and trial and test come in
actual contact and coetest with runaways.
Two years of active service on the mounted
force are n .ded' to develop a "hero." Of
course.a ho~sie could be disciplined in less
time if it could have the necessary practice,
but runaways can not be made to order,
and the horse must wait for his opportun
In turning his horse in toward a runaway
team the roundsman spurs it on top the op
posite side from the direction which he
wishes it to go and pulls his reins "bridle
wise." That is to say he steers his horse
by the neck rather than by the bit. All
police horses have two bits and two pairs of
reins. To turn a horse "bridlowise" you
pull both pairs of reins over the neck of the
horse in the opposite direction you want it
to take, pressing your hand at the same
time heavily over the maneo, indicating to
the animal by that means, more than by
the pull upon the bit, the course it should
A mounted life-saver's horse must stop
suddenly, must come to a full, sudden halt
at the word of command. Of course the
double bits, the sailtfe and the curb enable
the oflier to perfectly check his mount at
will, but the horse should be trained to stop
without any use of these painful methods.
When a runaway team comes tearing up
the drive thebpoliceman has to think with
lightning quickness. He must decide
whether it is better to turn them into some
shlubbery on the green, where they will be
forced to stop, or whether they should be
Sometimes it is dangerous to stop a team
of horses, especially when they are at

in the rear, and fright makes them wholly
unmrtnageable. The policeman's first
thougrht must be for the oocpants of the
Inrriage if there are any. Next he must
ronrider the danger to other drivers in the
v;cinity. If there be no risk in either of
those directi8ns hl must try to save the
