As a member of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, Auriol participated in many important ceremonial occasions including State Visits and Trooping The Colour.

Auriol retired to The Horse Trust as he developed chronic concussion laminitis from street work.

Whilst in the Household Cavalry, Auriol was part of the famous Musical Ride which took him to many exotic locations including the United Arab Emirates.

His last duty was to take part in The Horse Trust’s 125th Anniversary Parade on the 8th June 2011 where he was officially retired.
