VIDEO: New Orleans police horse dances to 'Cupid Shuffle'
NEW ORLEANS - A Louisiana police horse was captured on video showing a group of students some sweet dance moves.
NOPD mount Ace danced the "Cupid Shuffle" earlier this week for students at Covered Kids Camp. The department said the 17-year-old Percheron/thoroughbred Gelding's skills include dancing and crowd control.
“Our mounted horses are just as important as our officers,” authorities said in a social media post. “We treat them with the same love and respect we do our other colleagues. They play a major role in deterring crime in the city of New Orleans.”
Police said the photogenic horse likes Jazz music and hanging out in the French Quarter.
