The goal of the Asbury Universitiy Police Mounts is to produce safe, reliable horses ready for active police duty. To achieve this goal, Asbury University students put each horse through several stages of training starting as weanlings.Their Sensory Training involves a process of desensitizing the horses to external stimuli, and sensitizing to the cues of the handler/rider. The result is a horse and rider relationship built on trust.
Students and horses-in-training will perform demonstrations in our Horses of the World presentations each day for park visitors
