Warhorse in 2012
The War Horse will be riding in the Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan 1st, 2014 and performing in Equestfest on RFDTV on Dec 29, 2013 representing the " Regency Age ".
War Horse will be presenting the Regency Age with several famous cavalry regiments: the Royal Northern British Dragoons (Scots Greys), the Prussian Deathhead Hussars, the Bavarian Chevaulegers, the French 3rd Cuirassiers, and the French 25th Chasseurs.
The Royal Northern British Dragoons (Scots Greys) are Britain's Oldest Cavalry line Regiment, formed in 1678, their motto is “Second to None” and has won over 88 battle honors. The 1815 uniform features the signature bearskin (we use faux fur) as they wore in their famous charge at Waterloo against Napoleon as immortalized in the famous painting by Lady Butler: “Scotland Forever!”. During their famous charge they captured an eagle from the French 45th line infantry.

The Prussian Deathhead Hussars are the premier regiment of Prussian Cavalry. Their motto is death or glory! The were created by Frederick the Great and found glory and honor in numerous battles fighting Napoleon.
The Bavarian Chevaulegers are a regiment that was formed in 1682. Originally a Curiassier and then dragoon regiment, they became a light cavalry regiment adapting a French cavalry style during its alliance with Napoleon. They often carried a lance and fought in many campaigns including the Battle of Moscow as well as rising up against Napoleon in 1813-15.
The French 3rd Cuirassiers are the feared and vaunted heavy cavalry of Napoleon. Designed to smash through infantry and chase the enemy off the battlefield. The Cuirassiers showed no mercy or fear.
The French 25th Chasseurs in hunter green are an elite, light cavalry that covered the flanks for Napoleon and fought all over Europe.
