The Holkham beach ride-out is a key activity during the regiment's visit

For three weeks each year, the British Army's Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment swaps its London base for a summer camp in Norfolk.

They arrived earlier this month and have since taken part in various ride-outs.

The latest, to mark the retirement of Maj Richard Chambers, saw them accompanied on Holkham beach in Norfolk by photographer Chris Taylor.


Part of the trip includes a ride-out on Holkham beach, which is often the first time many of the horses experience the sea


Maj Chambers said he had been lucky to "enjoy a career of over 33 years working with some amazing animals"


Riding on the coastline also allows for riders to bond with their animals


It is one of a number of equestrian training exercises completed during the annual trip


The cavalrymen, all serving soldiers, are world famous for their state ceremonial duties


The mounted regiment is made up of the Life Guards and the Blues and Royals - the army's most senior regiments


Up to 200 soldiers and 130 horses take part in the visit


Chris Taylor described the combination of Holkham beach, horses and a sunset as a "photographer's dream"

That will be great if someone from Atlantis invades. Most countries with advanced militaries have traded in their horses for tanks aircraft and rifles that hold more than one bullet.

Here are the men of Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians):



And that's before I even mention the Mounties.

Including reserves for both, the British Army numbers 107,500 and the Canadian Army numbers a paltry 40,000. The British Army is 2.5 times bigger than the Canadian Army even though Britain is an island.

Britain also meets NATO defence spending requirements. Canada, of course, doesn't.

Maybe get your defensive shit in order first before disparaging Britain's superior and stronger military.

Ah yes whorse and beatches


Why do you call us to be in the front lines when ever YOUR nuts are in the fire, and YOU need someone to save you?
oh:

"Including reserves for both, the British Army numbers 107,500 and the Canadian Army numbers a paltry 40,000. The British Army is 2.5 times bigger than the Canadian Army even though
Britain is an island.

Well...NO MAN is an Island dood...I guess it's because you need real men around because it isn't play time anymore...and your enemies have guns, ships, and smallpox blankets, too now. YOU brits never could do a straight up fair fight on your own. LOL, like a Bunch of silly queens.

But like May lied about Putin, or the way Blair lied about Saddam (40 minutes, LOL!!!), or the way steele lied anout Trump, you shoot off your lyin' mouths off, and start wars all of the time, and hide behind the US and nato and the EU, like you are doing to Assad and Syria now. How chikinSh!T is that?

The current population of the United Kingdom is 66,983,183

Nice to see you lazy louts are taxing your peeps straight up the bum too.


The British diaspora

The British diaspora consists of British people and their descendants who emigrated from the present-day United Kingdom, or people who have acquired British Nationality through colonisation. The diaspora is concentrated in countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong

PS, any Canadians IN britain would be just running TOWARD battle.

We should be spending more on horses and get that NATO $$ number up.

By the way, this is the steed that Lord Strathcona's Horse rides these days ... designed and built in Canada, I might add.

We shouldn't even be in NATO.

They provide us nothing.

Rather comical, as well, all the posters not realising what the Household Cavalry actually is.

Only if they are already dead. The knot-heads in the wild horses are sent to Quebec for consumption.

We can buy horsemeat here in some places. In fact, I now fancy giving it a try. I might see if they have some in my local ASDA supermarket on Saturday.

We suddenly have Tim Horton's "meatless".

A likely story ....

You run out of foxes and are now chowing down on horses that broke a leg chasing the fox down? With 50 horses and 100 dogs on the trail there is bound to be a few mistakes.


I have to assume when the fox is killed it is just left there to rot rather than the Queen gets the first bite.. Looks a lot like the whole history of the place in how you treat all the people you have exterminated over the centuries. The 1815 loss to the Bankers is when you really started killing innocents on an industrial scale. That is bad in case nobody has mentioned it before
