From staff reports
The 1993 Comal County Fair is welcoming a new event this year to help celebrate its 100th birthday.
The First Cavalry Division Horse Cavalry Detachment from Fort Hood, Texas will be performing at 2 p.m. today at the Rodeo Arena. They also rode in this morning’s parade.
Comal County Fair President Jan Jochec said the detachment is a performance unit that is typical of a cav
alry from IOO years ago. She said they were uniforms like those worn IOO years ago, carry sabers and ride on horseback.
The detachment is the last horse-mounted cavalry unit in the United States Army.
The mission of the detachment is “to represent the First Cavalry Division and the U.S. Army in public appearances throughout the country, assist in recruiting by demonstrating the professionalism of today’s soldiers and
maintain the proud traditions forged by the cavalry.”
Since 1972, the detachment has appeared in two Presidential Inaugural parades, the 1984 World’s Fair and literally thousands of sate and local fairs, parades and rodeos The detachment performs formal military parades and reviews, civic and community street parades and a 30-minute Mounted Drill and Weapons Demonstration Officials of the detachment said the “demonstration is a thrilling exhibi
tion of the skill and precision required of the mounted trooper.”
The demonstration includes drill maneuvers at the walk, trot and gallop The weapons portion of the show demonstrates the mounted use of the cavalry saber, Colt .45 caliber revolver and the Springfield carbine.
The detachment is entirely self contained It includes 30 troopers and horses, a 1878 Army supply wagon and a 1841 cavalry support cannon. Officials said the detachment is flexible
and can adjust performances and parades to create almost any effect and only requires an area the size of a football field for its performances The Comal County Fair started this week and will continue until Sunday.
