We were so lucky that last week the mounted Metropolitan Police made time in their busy schedule to stop off at Rachel Keeling. Regal Blue and Scrumpy Jack were the names of the beautiful, strong horses who graced us with their presence.
The rain poured but the children still wanted to come outside and meet our visitors.
The horses enjoyed some carrots before we said goodbye so they could go and keep the streets of Bethnal Green safe.
Afterwards the children shared their thoughts about the horses:
"The horses got white and black. They eat some apples and some vegetables." Jannatul
"I was playing and they clippety clop, clippety clopped into the garden!" Vito
"I didn't see a horse before here. They eat some grass I think." Kamilah
"They eat carrots. Becky gave them carrots." Nabeelah.
