Nine people and eight horses make up the mounted police unit in Baltimore City, currently in its 125th year in existence. The unit has been larger and smaller over the years with 24 officer and horses in the 1980s (its heyday) to as few as only four horses four years ago. Several horses were donated by area businesses and local communities.
