Experience Level: High Purchased for: Personal Collection
I was privileged to see and chat with an NYPD mounted officer some years ago, during a visit to New York City. Being both a military veteran and an experienced horseman (as well as a lifetime collector), one of the first things I noticed was that the "brass" on his mount's tack was marked, "U.S.". Unlike what's represented on your model (which is nicely detailed, no critcism, here), the NYPD saddle was, as I recall, also (former) military issue, ie, a McClellan, not a Western. It's quite possible that the saddle was of the "English" type; but I'm reasonably certain that it was McClellan. Other than that, the model is impressive. The mount even has a good resemblance to the Morgan horse employed by the NYPD. I seem to recall that the mounts have their own badge number, as well. Thanks for your time.
