74th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade
Harris County Sheriff’s Office Junior Mounted Posse
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office Junior Mounted Posse was established by Sheriff Buster Kern in 1952 as goodwill ambassadors for the sheriff’s office. The posse is the oldest youth mounted drill team in the state of Texas. We are celebrating our 71st anniversary this year!
Our mission is to teach the youth of our community responsibility through caring and training for their mounts, volunteering their time as outreach ambassadors, and learning and executing intricate drills and maneuvers.
Posse members range in age from 6 to 20. The Jr. Posse performs in local rodeos, parades and participates in pony express relay rides to surrounding counties delivering invitations to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo every year.
