This weekend we will be Remembering the War Horses as part of the commemorations to mark 100 years after the end of the Great War 1914-1918.

Over half a million horses were requisitioned from the UK.  They were farm horses used to pull military equipment and riding horses used for the Cavalry.

Horses came from other countries too: from Russia; Australia and South Africa. Incredibly over 8 million horses took part in World War One.

Remembering the War Horses

The War Horses were all cared for daily by soldiers and the partnerships that formed between them were of great comfort during the tough war years.
