The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment are inspected at Hyde Park on 3 June 2021.
The Major General’s annual inspection of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment is the ultimate test for the British Army’s most spectacular and exacting ceremonial unit.
It’s a test they must pass in order to participate in upcoming State Ceremonial duties and, for the first time since 2019, that will include the honour of taking part in this year’s refined Queen’s Birthday Parade.
With the eyes of the world constantly on them, a searing annual quality control check is a challenging but welcome validation for these military perfectionists.
Around 170 horses and personnel of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment left Knightsbridge Barracks and headed to the “Football Pitch” area of Hyde Park to form up and be inspected by the General Officer Commanding the Household Division.
A rigorous inspection of horsemanship, turnout and State Ceremonial uniform was made by Major General Chris Ghika, the General Officer Commanding London District and Commanding Officer of the Household Division.
