The guard hussar regiment’s mounted squadron

The Hussar Squadron of the Guard Hussar Regiment is the pride of West Zealand. The Squadron ready for action is a very special sight, riding throug the streets of Slagelse from 12.30 every Wednesday *. The magnificent blue uniforms combined with the gleaming harness of the horses are a joy to behold, and the music grabs your attention immediately in the midst of the hurley-burley of the town.

The guard hussar regiment’s mounted squadron is a special unit.
The primary task of which is to place mounted escorts and commando forces at the service of the regent, and to train the guard hussars for various functions in the mobilisation force, such as riflemen, nursing assistants, etc.
The mounted squadron's history, traditions and uniforms can be traced back in a direct line to the Hussar Regiment set up by King Frederik V on 10 February 1762, in order to have a light mobile cavalry to face the Cassacks in the impending war with Russia.
