Pcso Luxford said: "On numerous occasions, fences have been cut and the horses have been released from the field.
"The horses are deliberately left to wander into the roads around Brookmans Park and left to wander the surrounding areas, distressed, and not recognising their whereabouts."
She added: "It goes without saying that it is a miracle a serious accident has not been the result of these irresponsible people's actions."
