On the morning of June 8, during the launching ceremony of the mobile cavalry police team, the police are riding horses in front of President Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum and the leaders of the Party, the State and National Assembly’s members made the social network stirred by pictures showing mobile police collecting horse manure on the road. A lot of funny and satirical comments are widely shared on Facebook.
The application of cavalry to the police force in Vietnam is too new to the eyes of people accustomed to motorized vehicles. Moreover, whether the equestrian police team can be used effectively, adapted to the terrain and climate of Vietnam or wasting the budget from the taxpayer of the people is also a question that public opinion seriously.
In an interview with a local newspaper, Minister of Public Security General To Lam said that the Mobile Cavalry Police will serve any job, even for use in state reception and national events.
The minister said that nowadays modern countries also use horses in the city, the work is very good. With the permission of the Government and the Ministry of Public Security to invest in construction, with the cooperation assistance of many international countries, it has developed this cavalry force.
The number of horses is growing gradually and will continue to be localized, bred domestic horses such as Bac Ha horses or horses in the regions of the mountainous people who are familiar with the area.
The Minister also said that the Mobile Cavalry Police Corps will serve any job, even used in state reception and national ceremonies.
“The countries they have the same form, of course I do not have to set a luxury goal but it is the common national rites that can be researched,” Minister To Lam said, using the cavalry in the immediate future. in crime prevention, in patrol control.
The Ministry of Public Security has set up a mobile cavalry Police team to train and use horses in the fight against crime and to ensure security and order in the new situation.
The horse is in good health, highly adaptable to harsh conditions. Flexibility, good looks, perform the task of patrolling, controlling and handling demonstrations, riots …
In particular, this breed serves in remote areas, the terrain conditions are very complicated, when motor vehicles, motorcycles, special vehicles cannot be maneuvered; take part in the struggle to hunt for hidden objects, hide and hide in mountainous and border areas.
In addition the cavalry also serves rescue operations in remote areas, complex terrain conditions; organize a patrol squad to ensure security and order in cities and tourist destinations.
Around the public concerned horses unsanitary on the streets, through some photos at the morning parade ceremony on June 8, the Minister of Public Security said, this is not an unforeseen incident.
According to the Minister of Public Security, due to the nature of horses with straight gut, continuous eating and digestion, the issue of hygiene when exploiting and using horses will be carefully calculated. For example, the British Royal’s cavalry had sanitary equipment for horses, collecting waste under the horse’s tail.
Current urban areas do not lack equipment to clean, suck and wash waste scattered on the streets.
Accordingly, Minister To Lam affirmed that this did not affect many issues of development and use of cavalry in Vietnam.
The comments on Facebook are mostly humorous and mocking coming from the piles of horse manure that appear carefree on the street.

This morning the mobile police cavalry was marching at Doc Lap street. This road passes through most of the regime’s headquarters, and through Uncle Ho’s tomb. After parading the horses, the horses will pass through the National Assembly building, where the Delegates are awaiting parade.
The funny thing is that the horses urinate all the way through the brain of the regime, defecating publicly in front of HCM’s tomb. When standing in front of the legislators, these horses continued to excrete, despite the empty but eloquent statements of officials.
According to the media, the horses will march on June 8-18. If it goes as planned, the horse shuttlecock swings into the heart of the party, the stronghold of the party will last and the people will have something to entertain in the next 10 days. If the march continues as planned, it is likely that the Ministry of Public Security will speed up the establishment of the General Department of Horse Shovel. The Director of the General Department will carry the rank of lieutetant or senior lieutenant general, earning salary equivalent to deputy minister. The race for the new General Department seat is expected to be very exciting!
Sometimes formal and demanding, in the end nowhere.”
Facebook, Nguyen Lan Thang, stated that the legal basis that the cavalry was discharging horse manure on the street violated “Point d, Clause 1, Article 7 of Decree 167/2013 / ND-CP with the prescribed sanctioning form. As follows:
Warning or administrative fine of between VND 100,000 and VND300,000 for acts: Leaving cattle, poultry or other animals defecating in public places.
General To Lam is requested to pay the fine to set an example,” Mr. Nguyen Lan Thang made recommendations.
Journalist Pham Ngoc Duong commented into an article as follows:
“When the police in Hanoi area bought bicycles for patroling, I predicted that no one would use them. After that, I took a few photos that made the Internet community laugh out loud, a whole bunch of bicycles were thrown in staircase in Mai Dong ward covered with rusted dust.
The police riding horse case is the same, sooner or later, the horses will enter the high pot.
I don’t understand anyone who thought of this funny, humorous, humorous joke. It really is nothing.
Let’s just give it a form of fun. So is Europe.
However, it must be considered in terms of history and culture. That is, do our ancestors’ history live on horseback, get their hooves wide open, or just love the “whipped horse“?
Vietnamese history is guerrilla resistance. From thousands of years to now so. In ancient times even more, when Dai Viet’s territory was unknown, riding an elephant.
Vietnamese people rarely ride horses, not because they do not know how to ride, but the horse breed in Vietnam is too small, looking like a donkey, a mule, a goat, a mule … The Vietnamese are small, riding on horses, but the horse is still tiny.
Today, horses are still small and people are bigger, so jumping on its back looks really pitty.
Indeed, if you want a little image of the police riding horses for fun, should make a cavalry team in Dien Bien, Ha Giang, Lao Cai … something, border patrol for example. Horses in the capital, looking both comical, cost more to raise their “potty” nests, journalist Pham Ngoc Duong said.
“We are living in the era of science and technology 4.0, why return to the Mongol cavalry era? Absolutely do not arbitrary manage things. If the horse riding is allowed on the streets of Hanoi, it is necessary to amend the Traffic Law, require a horse farm, build a horseshoe factory, research and invent patent bags for horse urine so they do not to spill on the road to make it unhygienic,” lawyer Tran Dinh Trien wrote in January.
Lawyer Le Quoc Quan writes:
This morning, the Mobile Cavalry Police Corps of the Mobile Police Command of the Ministry of Public Security was launched. An important speech was released. Many party and congressional leaders witnessed. The police team then had to clean up what the “Cavalry Mobile Corps” left behind.
Hopefully, after letting the Leaders taste all the flavors, this “Mongolian” stallion is not ranked like the “police” bikes left by ward police in Hanoi.
Contrary to domestic newspapers, the social network has commented that the mobile cavalry police are less impressive than the cavalry of the countries, that horses are like donkeys, that horses are thin, small, etc.
“If a horse runs like that on Vietnam road in the afternoon, if it doesn’t rot, it will quickly exhaust itself and die,” Facebook wrote Tran Minh Hien.
“Like a donkey,” according to Facebook Nhan Nghia.
Nguyen Lan Thang commented:
“I don’t know what the leader said but the horses defecate on the street.
Uncle Ho. They bought horses to come and cross the door of Uncle Ho’s tomb all morning and defecated a huge pile. These horses are very reactionary. They turned their asses into the mausoleum and then defecated. It is necessary to strictly treat these rebellious germs by putting them all in the hot pot.”
All cavalry teams, all have a common obsession to solve, called: horse manure.
If you have not imagined how bad the nightmare was, here is the horse cavalry used to breed dwarf horses, emitting about 18 kg of manure per day, an average of … 7 tons per year, not counting thousands of liters of urine.
An average police horse works about 8 hours a shift, 5 days a week, meaning that about 1400kg of stool will appear on the street each year. And, of course, when feces are excreted, someone has to collect, and who that person needs to be considered.
