Cavalry Training: The Epic Grandaddy of Cross Country

The action! The drama!

Wow! Check out this impressive video of 1920s cavalry training posted on Colleen Rutledge’s Facebook page:

Seriously?!!

Just watching this makes me think about helmets and safety vests … not to mention medical armbands! Even with the boring music, my heart goes all a-flutter when I see those horses leap the over the gaping chasms like they were just out for a pleasant, easygoing hack.

Hats off to these brave men for stickability, and to their horses for their almost mythical athleticism and honesty over such freaky terrain! Modern centaurs, indeed.

Go Cavalry. Go Eventing.
