This Police Horse Refuses To Get Out Of Bed For Work Without Having A Cup Of Tea

He likes his tea with skim milk and two sugars.


A lot of us (humans) struggle when starting the day without a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, and a police horse is no exception.

The 20-year-old Jake, (Police Horse), serving with the Merseyside Police for almost 15years now has picked up a love for sugary tea. Sticking his tongue in his rider’s cup daily, the staff of Merseyside police mounted section including Jake in their tea round.

Officers revealed that Jake since then will wait in his stable in Allerton, Liverpool for his mug to be brought to him before starting the working day. The pampered police horse takes his tea with two heaped teaspoons of sugar, skimmed milk and a mixture of cold water.

‘Jake is one of the twelve horses we have got at the stable working with us. I would describe Jake as a horse with a lot of character. We all have learned his order and he deals with one sugar. But happier when you give him two.’

‘If you are on the side of the stable and Jake sees you with a mug, you can be sure he will trot on over to try and steal a slurp.’ Lindsey Gaven, the Merseyside Police Mounted Section manager, and the trainer explained.

Since Jake is in its 20s, he will be due to retire from the force in 2020
