Charlotte was an HPD Mounted Patrol horse who came to HPD from Oklahoma as an unstarted 2-year old Tennessee Walker. She made a progress in HPD`s Mounted Patrol`s barefoot and natural horsemanship programs and got the job within a short time. For 4 years she served the citizens of Houston and everyone knew how much she loved her job.

Officer D. Herrejon has suffered in the accident, too, but he is now doing well. It was horrible for him to say goodbye to his partner and he stayed beside her until the end. As he said, its a big loss and he`ll miss Charlotte for a long time.
