The Bourbon Street Drinkery was grooving over the weekend when the band broke out with the L'il Nas X-Billy Ray Cyrus hit "Old Town Road".  

As the bar started to move with the music a guest dropped in unexpectedly.  Ace, the New Orleans Police Horse, stuck his head in the door and started to groove with the beat.

Drummer C.J. Edwards told WWL-TV Ace must've heard one of his favorite tunes.  Edwards said it appeared like Ace was ready to rush right in an hit the dance floor.

The 17-year old Ace has been part of the equine patrol since 2006.  His partner, Officer Joseph Jones patrols the French Quarter aboard Ace frequently.  He's also a remarkable dancer, as this NOPD Tweet shows.  

According to Jones, Ace loves good jazz and getting his picture taken.
