Royal Windsor Horse Show is delighted to announce the Household Cavalry Foundation as its official charity for the 2023 edition of the event, which will be held from 11-14 May.
About the Household Cavalry Foundation
Set up in January 2013, The Household Cavalry Foundation is the official charity of the Household Cavalry. The Foundation exists to provide charitable and pastoral support to all the members of Household Cavalry family including serving Soldiers, Operational Casualties and Veterans. The Foundation also supports the protection and development of the rich Heritage that surrounds the history of its Regiments, The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals, as well as the welfare of their retired horses.
The partnership with the Royal Windsor Horse Show will provide financial and material benefits to the Household Cavalry Foundation including the opportunity to raise donations at the show and have a physical and branding presence at the Show to help communicate key messages to the visiting public.
In addition, the Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment will be part of the spectacular schedule of equestrian action across the four-day Show. As the only mounted ceremonial soldiers who also serve as fighting soldiers, the Musical Ride of The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment is unique globally as it demonstrates exceptional horsemanship and the very best of British tradition. The drills, which are based on movements mounted soldiers would have historically used in battle, are carried out to music and performed in a routine that is strongly focused on precise timing and coordination.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the Household Cavalry Foundation to explain to the public our welfare support to our soldiers who both guard our Sovereign and fight wars for our nation; and our help to our serving and veteran soldiers, their dependants, and our retired horses; and for protecting our 363-year heritage.’’
Royal Windsor Horse Show Director, Simon Brooks-Ward, added:
Royal Windsor Horse Show is delighted to name the Household Cavalry Foundation as our official charity for the 2023 edition of this special Show. The work that they do, not only for their Soldiers, Operational Casualties and Veterans, but also the heritage of their Regiments and the welfare for their retired horses is remarkable. The Show is honoured to be able to support such a worthy cause.”
