Preserving the Traditions of the U.S. Cavalry Since 1976

Who We Are

The primary objective of the United States Cavalry Association is to preserve the history and traditions of the U.S. Cavalry service. We accomplish this goal through publications, events, and preservation of artifacts, photographs and written materials associated with the cavalry in our Museum and Research Library. The U.S. Cavalry Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization.

Every U.S. Olympic and National Team horse and rider up through 1948 came from the U.S. Army’s mounted services. Today the U.S. Cavalry Association preserves this fine tradition through sponsorship of the annual National Cavalry Competition (NCC) and regional competitions. 

The National Cavalry Competition classes include military and combat horsemanship, military field jumping, mounted saber, mounted pistol, and cross-country mobility.  After three days of competition, one trooper is named NCC Champion. The only prerequisites for participation are the ability to ride and the willingness to learn the traditional skills of the cavalry trooper. Competitors include civilians and military personnel from the U.S. and overseas.
