Merseyside Police says it has already raised almost £51,000 to help cover the cost of keeping horses since it launched the Standing Tall campaign last April.
This is still far below the £200,000 it says it needs on an annual basis for expenses including for horse feed, farriers and transport.

Four other police forces across the UK; Cleveland, Essex, Humberside, and Nottinghamshire, have already disbanded their mounted units since 2012, following the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review which cut millions from police budgets across the country.

LRD Exam News

Since 2010, Merseyside has lost £103 million in funding as well as 1,100 police officers due to the cuts.
The assistant chief constable, Rob Carden, said if the £200,000 target was reached each year this would mean likewise investment in frontline policing – as the £200,000 wouldn’t have to come out of the police budget.
He told Metro.co.uk: ‘The money made through sponsorship pays for the upkeep costs of the horses, which includes vets fees, feed, saddlery, farriers and transport, totaling approximately £200,000 in the past year.
‘Officers and staff working with the horses will continue to be funded from our normal budget and the money brought in through sponsorship means that we can continue to invest that £200,000 in frontline policing.

‘When the programme was devised, the force made sure that that that the sponsorship was ethical and the sponsors we currently have been already involved with the Force through partnership work. This ensured that those companies had already gone through a vetting procedure.
‘If we were to be approached by other companies, who were not working with us currently, they too would be subjected to vetting before being approved.
‘The horses are greatly loved and respected by the people of Merseyside.’
The Police Federation voiced concerns about the sponsorship move.
Operational spokesman Simon Kempton told the Telegraph: ‘It just doesn’t sit right with me.
‘I worry about this potentially being the thin end of the wedge and ask where it stops.’
