The Kentucky Horse Park and the Lexington Mounted Police Unit hosted the 32nd Annual Mounted Police Colloquium at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Instructors trained police and civilians in jumping, crowd control and sensory techniques. One obstacle had the rider and horse approach a trainer on a giant rocking horse. Other obstacles included a fisherman, a bridge and a noisy construction site. The weeklong event concluded Friday with an obstacle course.

More than 80 officers and horses from the United States and Canada competed in the timed obstacle course.
