Description

The series follows rookies through riding school, arguably the army's toughest course and definitely a school of hard knocks! In just 16 weeks, the school transforms these 18 year-old 'sacks of spuds' into accomplished troopers riding in full state kit - jackboots, plumed helmet and sword.The Queen's Cavalry uses the men of the Household Cavalry to tell their own stories of war and tradition. Often funny, candid and dramatic, the series is an illuminating look at an extraordinary mix of men, animals and weaponry combined in one unique regiment.While the Household Cavalry Regiment is deployed with armoured vehicles on military operations, the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment performs ceremonial roles on horseback and is tasked with protecting the Queen as her official bodyguards. The cavalry, comprising the Lifeguards and the Blues and Royals, has been at the forefront of military operations for Britain, on duty with the UN in Bosnia and Kosovo and more recently in Iraq. Prince Harry will soon join the Blues and the Royals, and his brigade may be deployed to Iraq in 2007. The Queen's Cavalry will be shown in four one hour segments as follows:The Big EventConsisting of two contrasting halves, the fighting side and the ceremonial side; Britain's most senior regiment has guarded the monarch for over 350 years. In this episode, the combined mounted regiment, the Life Guards and the Blues & Royals, practice ceremonial duty in Hyde Park in preparation for the State Opening of Parliament. The competition heats up as the two squadrons on ceremonial duty battle it out to prove they have the best turned out troopers, even if their horses have other ideas. Others training for battle strive to make the grade, and gain a promotion. And the Cavalry's new recruits, struggle to stay in the saddle on their first day of riding school.
