Members of the QMPU Management team recently travelled to Melbourne to engage with mounted members from throughout Australia and hold a workshop to discuss troop horse training, staff member training, equipment and operating protocols.
Members from the Western Australian, South Australian, Victorian and New South Wales Mounted Units were all in attendance. The workshop was a valuable experience providing a platform to brain storm, exchange ideas and benchmark.
Day two saw the official opening of the Victorian Mounted Police and Dog Squad complex situated at Attwood (on the outskirts of Melbourne). The complex is an exceptional facility and is situated on over 100 acres. The complex features spelling paddocks, an expansive stable complex and state of the art under cover arena.
