Re: Cross Country/ Training Course

The US Cavalry Association sells a book that covers how to set up a Hunter Trial if that is what you are looking for. http://www.uscavalry.org/shop/index.php/books/horsemanship-volume-iii There also are many examples on the web of Three Day Eventing cross country courses. http://www.coconino.az.gov/...

Re: US Cav Photo - 1912 Experimental Equipment

I did a search of “W.H. Horne Co, El Paso, Texas, USA” and found several sites with his photographs. Apparently he was a photographer and perhaps also had a post card company in El Paso during the Punitive Expedition time period. The El Paso Public Library has a collection of some 619 photos by Mr. ...

Re: Abolishment of the Horse Cavalry in the U.S.

I don’t suspect this reference will answer the question however it appears to be a good reference for specific US Cavalry units.

Re: Saddle ID, Preparedness Parade

Yes, I saw that and some other comments. I was going to write that he was an interesting man with some faults, as we all have, but I left the fault part out. Then again he may simply have been a man of his time. I also came across this, which was to his credit. In June, at a meeting of the Executive...
