A much-loved Thames Valley police horse has been put to sleep following a leg injury that the horse was not able to recover from.
The Thames Valley Police Mounted Section announced the sad news on their Twitter page after the horse’s condition deteriorated.
A spokesperson for the unit said:
“We are utterly devastated to announce that we have had to have our Gorgeous PH Mallory put to sleep.
“After an ongoing battle with a leg injury which has sadly deteriorated, we had to make the most awful but kindest decision we could for him.
“Thank you, Mallory, for your seven years of hard work and service to Thames Valley Police.
“He was a yard favourite for being the most loveable & cheekiest horse but also the most fun to ride. We will all miss you terribly”.
Police Horse Mallory was one of four Thames Valley Police horses to take part in the procession that led PC Andrew Harper’s funeral through Oxford on October 14th 2019.
PH Mallory was joined by PH Atlas, PH Odin and PH Luna when they led PC Harper’s motorcade through Oxford to Christchurch Cathedral.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
