Thousands of students came down to Trenton mid-day Wednesday, to see the world renown “Dancing Police Horses of Trenton”. They waited all afternoon in anticipation of the world-famous dancing horses — — — which were scheduled to dance on State Street in front of the Statehouse in Trenton, in celebration of spring. The students patiently waited on the steps of the Statehouse with their signs welcoming the horses.
Police Capt. Sebastian Dinwiddie, trainer of the horses, said “it always makes me smile to see the laughing faces of students as the horses do their dance.”
Students came from as far as Bergen County, and from as far south as Cape May County. “I think this year they were especially good, I remember seeing them I was a kid in Newark,” said Joshua Goldstein of Weequahic High School.
“I see a lot of horses on horse farms in Hunterdon County,” said Emily Ann Chesterfield of Voorhies High School in Lebanon. “But none of the horses we have are as talented as these ponies.”
What was especially exciting for most of the students was the final turn where all the horses showed their best side, in “their tribute to Republican governors of New Jersey.”
