We promise you, we aren’t horsing around; you can now have the faces of our horses on your wall all year round!

Our mounted unit have teamed up with local Fenwick Photography, to create the perfect Christmas present, or treat for yourself, with proceeds going to help horses in need.

The calendars, that showcase a selection of horses and mounted officers are available through Fenwick Photography’s Facebook page. 

£5 from every sale will go to the Horse and Pony Protection Association (HAPPA) - a charity that has been saving equine lives since 1937.

HAPPA investigate over 300 cases of cruelty each year against horses, ponies and donkeys, and are funded entirely by donations and acts of kindness. HAPPA are also responsible for re-homing the majority of the force’s retiring police horses.

Mounted Unit’s Sergeant Clive Collings said: “We endeavour to ensure our horses are given the best care, as well as a good deal of love and attention, which benefits their valuable role working to protect the public and serve our communities. Unfortunately, some horses are not so fortunate.

“I am really pleased that money from every calendar sold will be going to ensure HAPPA can continue to do this valuable work. I just hope the fact some of the human faces around Ring Farm have made it onto the calendar doesn’t restrict sales!”

Photographer Jaz Leach added: “South Yorkshire Police’s Mounted Unit will always have a place in my heart, as my mum, Katherine Wallis was a Sergeant within the unit until 2018.

“To be able to work alongside the horses and officers to raise money for HAPPA is amazing.”

If you have a soft spot for a particular one of our police horses, individual photographs are also available.
