Mounted Patrol is arguably HPD’s most visible and versatile unit in the department. Whether patrolling downtown, handling crowds, performing search and rescue missions, conducting public service demonstrations, or representing the department in a ceremonial capacity; they are the very best at what they do!


To ensure Mounted Patrol is able to operate at its current capacity, we are seeking financial support from corporations, organizations, and individuals to offset the unit's operating costs for the 30 to 35 horse herd. Accordingly, we are requesting that you consider sponsoring a Mounted Patrol horse. The tax deductible $5,000 sponsorship will cover all of the operating expenses for one horse for one year. In return, we offer our sponsors the opportunity to:

  • Name the horse. This name will be displayed on the saddle pad worn on patrol duty
  • On the horse's stall, have a plaque stating "Proudly Sponsored By (company or organization logo)"
  • Recognition on the Houston Police Foundation and Mounted Patrol web pages that includes the individual's name or company or organization's logo.
  • HPD will provide studio quality photos of the horse, horse and assigned officer, and horse and sponsor-designated personnel for display at the sponsor's place of business.
