Yes, Ace the New Orleans police horse knows the ‘Cupid Shuffle’ — watch him show off skills | Crime/Police


We’ve had dancing police officers. Now we have dancing police horses. 

The New Orleans Police Department recently shared a video of Ace the horse doing the Cupid Shuffle. Ace side-steps to the music, does a few spins and displays some other fancy footwork in front a summer camp audience.

The Cupid Shuffle is a social media favorite for NOPD. In 2016, NOPD’s “Wobble Cop” showed off his Cupid Shuffle skills during the Zulu parade.

Ace is 17 years old and has been a member of NOPD’s Mounted Unit since 2006. Officer Joseph Jones is Ace’s handler and they normally patrol the French Quarter.

Ace the horse is a member of NOPD’s Mounted Unit.



Ace loves jazz music, according to NOPD, and his favorite treat is grain. He loves having his picture taken and he has mastered a special trick for the crowds, according to NOPD spokeswoman Danielle Miller.

“He stretches out his front legs and then pops back up almost as though he were taking a bow for his fans on Bourbon Street,” she said. 

Ace is a Percheron thoroughbred gelding.
