    Almost killed the Household Cavalry today...





    Pulling out of Hyde Park Barracks this afternoon just as I went to drive out the gates I was confronted with 7 Horses and riders coming in, fully done up in all their splender..

    To say I got a dirty look from the officer in charge is an understatement. Just glad I'm not a squddie as I think I would of got a proper bollocking. The fact the guard on the gate didn't warn me didn't seem to matter.

    guessed that lol just teasing. Do you still keep up riding now or did you give up when you left? A friend of ours used to be in the cavalry then when he left he joined the police and moved into the mounted section. When they disbanded his mounted section they let him keep his horse who was overdue for retirement anyway (all the horses were, that's how they knew in advance their section was due for disbanding as they never got replacement horses they asked for when theirs started getting older). He also got all it's tack and rugs etc but he put him out on permanent loan to a friend instead.
