The horse, named King Tut, reportedly earned a glazed munchkin while Officer John Sesselman ordered a cup of coffee.

Whitney Shafter captured the amusing image, and it was posted on Teddy Foster’s Facebook page with the comment, “Only in Saratoga.”

According to the Saratoga Springs Police Department website, the mounted patrol’s mission is “traffic control, crowd control, community relations and prevention of street crimes.”

More photos of King Tug and Sesselman patrolling the town can be viewed on the police department’s Facebook page. The caption said, “It’s a beautiful summer day in Saratoga Springs, and Officer Sesselman and King Tut are downtown on patrol. King Tut works hard, and he doesn’t mind if you stop to pet him!”
