Lancelot (a.k.a. Lance) retired from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office
Mounted Patrol Unit after working there for 8 years. He was retired due to stifle lameness and caudal heel pain.

Lancelot came to the Sheriff’s Office from Pat Parelli* (founder of the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program).

*Parelli Natural Horsemanship (PNH) is a program that uses an approach to communicate with horses based on natural equine behaviors, to achieve trust and respect in the horse/human relationship. PNH methods are similar to the ways that horses act with one another within a herd. Source: Wikipedia
