The Mounted Patrol was instituted in 1925, is a charter member of the International Shrine Horse Patrol and appears not only in parades, but also on occasion, at Northeastern Shrine Association Conventions. In days gone by the unit rode all Palominos and wore the traditional “English riding” uniform. Recently, the Mounted Patrol has moved to a “Western Cowboy" uniform on diverse horses.
Our unit works to raise money for Shriners Hospitals. The horses are greeted enthusiastically as they lead Aleppo in the parades, as the unit is the parade escort for the “Potentate”. Unit members own and care for their own horses. The unit is lead by;
Captain: Charles aka “Doc” Mann
1st Lieutenant: Doug Macone
2nd Lieutenant: Steven aka “el Diablo” Brackett
- The Wranglers in the unit include:
Mark Brown, Rick Shaw, Joshua Garfinkle
Chris Pinto, David Elliott aka “Flip”, Ryan Reddell
George Rivers, James Stallion
- Past Captains
- Ray Burgress
- Skip Swinamer
- Tom Cinelli
- The horses include: Buck, Dancer, Classy, Sergeant, Foxy, Bert, Scooby
- The pony cart is pulled by Ginger with George Rivers doing the driving.
