Description

The horses of the Household Cavalry, known as ‘Cavalry Blacks’, have been guarding the Royal Family and taking part in ceremonial occasions since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660.

A few Household Cavalry horses will be visiting the National Army Museum exclusively for the Chelsea History Festival. Come along to meet the horses and speak to the soldiers who get to work alongside them as part of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment.
