(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Riverton Police Department’s Mounted Patrol will be out horseback tonight for the sixth annual Music On the Riverwalk.

“We’ll have our mounted patrol on the Rails to Trails pathway this evening and our bicycle patrol will be out for tomorrow’s Day in the Park,” Captain Eric Murphy said Friday morning.

Earlier this month the RPD’s Mounted Patrol completed an intensive training program at the Central Wyoming College Equine Center putting their horses through many crowd control and event scenarios to prevent the horses from being spooked during live events.
