Please welcome Ted!


The latest recruit to our Mounted Keeper team...


One of the highlights of the Commons for visitors is getting the chance to meet our horses as they patrol the Commons with our Mounted Keepers.

Hot off the press as he has just arrived at the yard this morning, our Keepers would like to introduce you to Elmhurst King Henry, the latest recruit to our team.

Ted, as he is more affectionately known, is a 10 year old Irish Draught horse who is on permanent loan to us from the Metropolitan Police.  

He has already successfully negotiated his first short patrol on the Commons and we're delighted that he has taken it all in his stride and looks like he will fit right in!
