AUSTIN (AP) - Troopers on patrol at the Texas Capitol complex have another way to make their rounds without hopping in a vehicle or hoofing it on their own.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has started a mounted horse patrol.

Ceremonies were held Tuesday in Austin at the Capitol, where more than a million visitors make their way each year.

DPS Director Steven McCraw says the mounted horse patrol is a logical extension to the department’s security measures to protect the Texas Capitol.

The patrol currently includes three troopers and four horses.
