What is the U.S. Cavalry Association?
Did you know that “Every U.S. Olympic and National Team horse and rider up through 1948 came from the U.S. Army’s mounted services. Today the U.S. Cavalry Association preserves this fine tradition through sponsorship of the annual National Cavalry Competition and regional competitions around the country. “
I love to watch the U. S. Cavalry Association riders guiding their talented horses around challenging jump courses. I believe there is one Olympic rider who is so grateful for the support he’s gotten from the Italian Cavalry, that he competes in the Italian Army uniform.
Did you know the U. S. Cavalry Association will help you with research and they have all sorts of documents about the history of the Cavalry in their library? They also have several events each year.
