Household Cavalry Weekend - Thetford, Norfolk

July 14th/15th 2012

Kathy was invited to join the Side Saddle Display Team at the annual Household Cavalry Weekend - which is the finale of the Cavalry's "Summer Camp", basically a training exercise for the young troopers.

Several of these young men had only been riding a matter of a couple of months - height of bravery in my opinion to then enter a jumping competition and perform the famous Household Cavalry Musical Ride!

We had a great time - including Kathy & Lauren (who came along as our "groom") dancing with an officer on the Saturday evening!
I also ticked an officer off for a slight "emergency relief" indiscretion LOL
 (details on request :-D )

The troopers and officers made us most welcome - what a wonderful regiment of young men!
Anyway, here are some pictures.

Watch out Lexie - you have a 
Cavalryman following you...

... too late, confined to barracks -
you're in the army now! LOL
