We have ridden with the Fort Irwin guys many times in the past and have always had a good relationship with them. As the two western-most Army horse detachments, we are kind of isolated from the rest of the Army horse community. The 11th ACR detachment represents the cavalry as it existed in 1901 while B Troop represents the cavalry of the 1880's. The two detachments together made for a colorful event.
It was a good day and both units had a chance to see what they need to work on before going to the National Cavalry Competition in September. Hopefully, we will have an opportunity to do this again next year.
