The Taiwan Mounties
On horseback in one of the most urban of the world’s great cities, the New Taipei City mounted police force is in charge of tourist security. This prestige unit, created in Taiwan in 2003 with a few club horses, has rapidly become the pride of the population. The brigade of passionate riders, all volunteer policemen, provides a high-profile presence in the city centre. And what better ambassador than a horse for a police force that has been completely transformed since the country’s peaceful transition to democracy in the 1990s. However, deep cuts in the city’s budget are threatening the brigade. The mounted cops are united to carry on their adventure.
