Danby-BIO

‘Danby’, is our first retired horse to arrive from South Wales Police. A very handsome grey gelding, ‘Danby’ has served with South Wales Police for over 10 years, and has worked on all ceremonial parades, routine patrols, rugby and football matches. Danby is described by his rider PC Steve Durrani as ’a quirky but lovable old man’.

He was great at testing all the new recruits and would often be responsible for the cream cake forfeits they had to supply when dismounting without permission!!

His claim to fame was starring in the TV Series of Casualty, demonstrating his bravery in a very scary riot situation.
