Time Out says

Few spectacles stop people in their tracks on NYC streets as much as mounted police. On loan from downtown's New York Police Museum, "10-Foot Cops" looks at the phenomenon and history of this elite NYPD unit through artifacts—among them saddles on which kids can have their picture taken, uniforms, paindings and a replica of an NYPD stable—archival video (such as a 1940 short called "Training Police Horses") and special talks that illuminate the role and daily lives of these regal public ambassadors. All ages.
