1st Cav. Horse Detachment
Our 3-Part Unit Mission
- Serve as a link to America's military past;
- Aid the U.S. Army's recruiting efforts across the country; and,
- Faithfully represent the 1st Cavalry Division, III Corps, and the U.S. Army in military and civic ceremonies, parades, and demonstrations.
The Horse Cavalry Detachment is committed to professionally and safely representing the history, pageantry, and traditions of the U.S. Cavalry of the Indian Wars Era. Every trooper is hand-picked and tested prior to acceptance into the unit. We take great pride in our ability to maintain current standards of military discipline while preserving the unique skills and traditions of the horse-mounted cavalry of an era gone by.
