    Default A Real U.S. Cavalry Wedding at Ft. Hood with Cavalry Horses!

    The video is long, but if you want to see what I consider the best part, go to 29:09 into the video and see how the bride and groom go under crossed sabers by the cavalry on their horses and what happens to the groom and bride then, per cavalry tradition!

    Belay that! Watch all of it! The flower girl is precious. The ceremony and the staging is fantastic. Every horse and mule is impeccable.

    Cute! I was waiting for one of the horses to take a bite out of the flowers! ;-)

    I love the way he talks to his mules, just like an old fashioned muleskinner!
