David Waguespack is the riding instructor for the Mounted Division of the New Orleans Police Department. David has been training police horses and their riders since 1998. According to David, only one horse out of 50 passes the qualifying test to be a police horse on the streets of New Orleans. David describes the process of training these horses and says that each animal requires anywhere from a few weeks to six months before it is ready to join the Mounted Division. Horses called Warm Blooded horses are David's favorites to train, and he explains why. "The biggest thing we look for in a horse is its temperament", David says. While size is not as important as temperament, David prefers horses that are between 16 and 17 "hands" high. One surprising fact David shares with us is where the Police Department gets many of its horses. He gives us the answer in this podcast.
