  1. I love horses but didn’t know there were any mounted units in the area since I’ve only been in the Lehigh Valley for two years. Thanks to the April 20, 2017 issue of the newspaper, I learned about Pharaoh, George, Asa and Grey. I wish them and all their people the very best in their move to their new quarters in May. Yours sincerely, Charlee Ann Burse
    ps It appears you use English saddles. Is there a particular reason for that?
