Did you know that horses can communicate with humans? Isn’t this really incredible? Considering especially that we view horses as the rest of the domesticated animals. Someone would argue that cats and dogs can also communicate with their “family” members.

Well, that might be true but apparently, horses can form much deeper relationships with people and particularly their handlers. According to Rachele Malavasi, Ph.D., of the School of Ethical Equitation, in Moncigoli Di Fivizzano, Italy, ” Horses are social animals which have evolved skills to maintain their social unity: affiliative relationships, protection from outsiders, social facilitation, and even social learning”.

She also proceeds by explaining that after studies were conducted, “We know now that their skill set also includes the ability to communicate intentionally with humans”. People who were fortunate to have their own horses can probably tell us about the strong bond that can be forged between a horse and a human.

If we consider then that horses have that amazing social skills, what you will read next will hardly surprise you! Our story took place back in 2013 and its main protagonist is none other but a very unique and talented police horse.

Anyone that has visited New Orleans, Louisiana can attest that it’s a “magical” place full of music, fragrances, and colors. Solange Knowles told Vogue in 2016, “It is one of those things you can’t put into words, you can’t put your finger on what is so magical about it.”

So, even a night police patrol can turn into an amazing spectacle in this magical city, with music and dance, especially when the police horse has better dancing skills than the rest of us!

The video starts and we find ourselves in a crowded New Orleans street, it’s nighttime and the street is illuminated by the stores’ lights. We can hear Jazz music playing and our police officers make their entrance, following the beautiful tunes.

After a while, the police officer and the horse dance their way out of the musical scene, by retreating in reverse into the darker side of the street, bidding goodnight in this way to the crowd and continuing their patrol.
