Commando 2015

Gorgeous Cavalry Black Commando arrived at The Horse Trust in August 2012.  He retired to us from the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment where he had served with The Blues and Royals since 2002.  He has been retired due to arthritis. Commando is one of few horses that has participated in the Royal Wedding, both Golden and Diamond Jubilee parades and has also been a Standard Bearer and an Officer’s Charger.
Commando is supported by the National Theatre’s production of ‘War Horse’. At our grand reopening event on 5th June 2013 Commando met the amazing puppet Joey, the star of War Horse.
