In the early 2000s, Greg Sokoloski, a police officer in the Houston Mounted Police Department, decided to run an "experiment" on the horses in the police force. With some preparation and commitment, Greg pulled the shoes on these hardworking horses and put them back to work. Greg talks about how the Houston Police Department now keeps 40 police horses happy and sound barefoot.
