Half Term - Horse Crafts

Horses are at the heart of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment.

Historically they remain at the heart of historic pageantry which captures the imagination of so many visitors to the capital.

Learn about the Horses of the Household Cavalry whilst making a Cavalry Black hobby horse of your own to take home with you in our fun craft activities!

Once Hobby Horse is complete, perhaps it will be time for a gallop around Horse Guards Parade!
