Toronto Mounted Police

Every so often you get to see the Toronto Mounted Police trotting along downtown streets, usually in pairs, sometimes in small groups. Mostly they look cool and get a lot of stares and provide a lot of photo opportunities.

You tend to forget they are also formidable for crowd control purposes - like at riots and protests. I imagine you will see lots of them during upcoming G20 conference to be held in Toronto on June 26 and 27, 2010.

I have watched them perform as a group during the Toronto Doors Open event down at the CNE grounds. The horses wear protective shields over the eyes, just like their riders.

They are based out of the Horse Palace in the CNE.
