In all the countries on the globe they are prone to boast of their cavalry and well they may, but when one sees this picture of the Russians on horseback they must admit that the cavalry of that country is one of the most wonderfully trained body of men in the world. They perform some marvelous feats on horseback, and the animals used are of a select lot that seem to display human intelligence in every move and carry their riders through the wonderful drills without a mishap. We see them on dress parade in the great common, and charging the enemy, dashing over hurdles, down steep hills and up again, and on through the meadows, jumping every obstruction imaginable, the riders holding on for life and going at a terrific rate of speed in , which one slight error would plunge them into eternity. Finally we see the grand review and it is indeed inspiring to see the noble animals bearing their heroic riders ready to meet the enemy.
