Re: "Trails Found: Training SOF to Operate on Horseback"

These photos prove that the American horse soldier is not an item in the dusk bin of history.

Re: The South African Defence Force and Horse Mounted Infantry Operations, 1974 - 1985

Great read, What are some other good books on that subject. I saw the units histories in the source list and Sandra Swart, Riding High: Horses, History and Humans in South Africa.

According to somethings that I have read that the code word the Secret Service used for Reagan was rawhide, since he loved to ride.

German cavalryman shooting

http://dailylifestyle.com/rare-never-se ... hotos/29/I have never seen anyone shoot like this but is showing me that the horse is very well trained and the rider has great balance, but It makes me wonder how else was a cavalry trooper from that era trained.

Re: River Crossing of an Infantry Battalion/Cavalry

I have always hear they used a mare for that role, but I am not 100% sure.

Re: NWP Stock Saddle Accessories; Mounties basic load.

I agree that is very interesting (there mission and working alone seems like how history has viewed the Texas Rangers and the AZ rangers more than the US Cavalry.) and I will disagree slightly about the Winchester not making a good military rifle, since the Turks used them to defeat the Russians in ...

Patton is quoted as saying that in North Africa if he had a ...

Re: Horse dependancy=Rail dependancy=Air vulernability

Another point to add to that is how the Germans were always short of fuel and needing more oil. That might have had part of the reason why they used draft horses as late as they did.

Re: Aircraft crew recovery

I wonder if they helped him out of hatred of the rebels or out of hope for a reward, I have trouble believing they brought him back to American lines just because it was the right thing to do.
