Cavalry Days Demonstration on Friday, March 7
Historic Army regiment puts on free mounted-horse exhibition
South Point Arena celebrates history alongside the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (ACR), one of the most storied regiments in the United States Army, during the unit’s Cavalry Days on Friday, March 7 at 1 p.m. Kicking off the exhibition will be a special meet and greet with the 11th ACR’s riders and horses beginning at noon.
Throughout the afternoon, the 11th ACR will demonstrate honorable traditions of the American Cavalry by showcasing a variety of pistol demonstrations to display the art of weaponry used throughout history. In addition, the cavalry will showcase the unique visual of how mounted horsemen once used a Cavalry Saber, their primary piece of weaponry.
The 11th ACR originated Feb. 2, 1901 and is presently stationed at Fort Irwin, Calif. This legendary Regiment, nicknamed the “Blackhorse Regiment,” played a pivotal role in the Philippine–American War, World War II, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Iraq War). Currently, the Blackhorse Regiment has the unique mission to provide the most capable and lethal opposing force in the world, which is designed to train military units for world wide deployment as they come through the National Training Center, at Fort Irwin.
