In Wilcox, Arizona, "a U.S. Border Patrol Agent participates in a basic rider class to become a horse patrol agent. Sturdy, highly strung mustangs from wild herds in the Rockies are playing a growing role as the U.S. Border Patrol takes its hunt for smugglers into the most rugged terrain on the Arizona-Mexico border. The Tucson sector horse patrol took possession of six mustangs from Colorado this week, and is harnessing their sharp hearing, keen eyesight and stamina to track drug smugglers and illegal immigrants trekking through areas so remote even all-terrain vehicles cannot reach them."
