AzRA's Cavalry is a blend of Re-Enactor Horsemen and Professional Horsemen. We have chosen
this combination for reasons of Safety and Performance. AzRAHist has an excellent record for Safety and One-Shot
Cavalry, Back to the Future, III
Our horseman and horses are "
Auditioned" before they can participate in any shoot that involves anything but the simplest riding. Our
"Horse Skills Test" is based on a re-created "Mounted Military Training Field", that tests a
riders ability to control his horse "in place",
"riding through obstacles" and over "jumps". The
test must be taken while firing a pistol and also while using the sabre. Our 1st priority
is whether the rider can control his horse under difficult situations, not just whether he
can "stay on." We have found that the most difficult task for most horsemen is
controlling the horse while standing still.
Our Cavalry (including Dragoon and Buffalo Soldier) units can do most images
between 1840 and 1890. They can be equipped as needed; anything from the man only, up to a
complete image including: wardrobe, props, weapons, camp, horse and tack as required. Images include Cavalry Officers, NCO's and Enlisted
Men, for both American Civil War Union and Confederate, as well as Indian Wars and Mexican War U.S.
