Stunning Horse Photos from the 2018 Army Photographic Competition

This year’s Army Photographic Competition has featured several stunning photographs featuring military horses.

Household Cavalry Soldier, Lance Corporal of Horse (LCoH), Adam Blackmore-Heal is more used to being part of the ceremonial parades in London. However he turned this to his advantage as he took several photos for the Amateur categories of the competition.

Using this to his advantage, Adam scooped first place in the Sports category. His stunning photo shows a Military Horse and Rider leaping over a table, titled ‘Making an entrance’.

Around 250 members of the Armed forces took part in celebrations in Windsor today for the Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle.
The Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force are all providing ceremonial support to mark the occasion.
Units that hold a special relationship with Prince Harry were chosen at the request of Kensington Palace. Some of the troops performing ceremonial duties today served alongside Prince Harry during his ten years in the Army.
The State Trumpeters of the Band of the Household Cavalry played fanfares in St George’s Chapel to mark the arrival of HM The Queen and Ms Meghan Markle ahead of the wedding service.
Members of the Household Cavalry lined the steps of St George’s Chapel as the guests leave the wedding service.
After the service, a travelling Escort of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment accompanied the bride and groom during the carriage procession through Windsor.
The streets inside Windsor Castle were lined by servicemen and women from Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving, 30 Commando IX Group the Royal Marines, The 1st Battalion Irish Guards, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles, and personnel from RAF Honington.
Prince Harry joined the Army in 2005 and was commissioned as an Officer in 2006 after training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He joined The Blues and Royals, one of two regiments in the Household Cavalry, in April 2006. Prince Harry served in the Army for ten years, undertaking two tours of Afghanistan and rising to the rank of Captain.
Both Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have shown their continued support for serving Armed Forces personnel and veterans in their benevolent work, most recently in their support of the Invictus Games Foundation.
