Our History

Organized in 1991, the Posse was the brainchild of  Roy Hance, a longtime Rockwall resident who loved to ride horses but also wanted to find a way to serve the community.  Hance, who had been riding since he was a young boy, was inspired by other mounted units throughout the area and tried for seven years to start a group in Rockwall.  Finally, with the support of then-Sheriff Jacques Kiere, the Posse was born.

"We're not just a riding club," explains Hance, who is adamant that people understand the service aspect of the Posse's job - a job that includes rounding up stray animals, conducting searches, patrolling high traffic areas and providing crowd cotrol.  " We do work for the county and the city. We're a working organization."
