Wild Horse in the Streets

wild-horse-in-parisSeveral of you reported to me that a few days ago a loose horse crossed the streets of Paris. To be honest, I thought it was some sort of prank. Maybe a little incident with a horse that escaped his master for a few seconds and made it to the news worldwide! But I investigated and I found out that not only was it true, but that on top of that a video had been shot! There are still 550 horses in La Garde Républicaine de Paris, and you can often see a few of them in the streets of Paris, like these I photographed on the Pont Neuf.

    I believe you but…I’m french and I have lived in Paris for 30 years now and I have never ever seen a gendarme on a horse like the ones you show on the photo. I know they exist but where are they ?
