Indonesia’s Cavalry Man

Indonesia's Cavalry Man

Indonesia is not known as a cowboy country.  Only an eastern part of Indonesia that has horse ranch and the animal becomes part of the culture, i.e. in East Nusa Tenggara.

However, it doesn’t mean my country doesn’t have cavalry troops. Our history told us that even in the past horses were used for armed forces.

Until now, Indonesia also has horsemen, cavalry troop in their armed forces. Police department has also their own horse cop.

One of them can be seen on the above photo taken during the parade of Bogor Lantern Festival 2020. Each year, horsemen are on the front of the long parade.
