About Us

Welcome to The Cavalry of Heroes

 “Become part of the enchanting story of a Knight and his Lady and the world that grew up around them to wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen”

We are the Cavalry of Heroes, and in our world you’ll find incredible horses and valiant horsemen and women.

Set up by Horse Trainer, Stunt Rider and Coachman Marc Lovatt, The Cavalry of Heroes provides quality horses, carriages, riders and coachmen for live shows, events and film. Where our happy and healthy horses are the stars; trained and looked after by our heroic team to ensure the best performances.

“A Magical Blend of Horsemanship and Theatre”

With a background working with horses from before he was even born, Marc has years of experience training horses from Showjumping in Burma to driving carriages at The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace and has since worked for some of the biggest teams riding on film sets across Europe.

Above all he places the importance of making sure that our stunning horses are happy and healthy horses and trust in him. As by gaining and respecting this trust our beautiful horses always give us their very best performance, willingly and without hesitation, through mutual respect and admiration.

Part of the team is Catherine Lovatt who works alongside Marc as The Horse Mistress organising everything on and off set and designing the look and feel of the performances by drawing on her fantastical imagination and creative background. Also as a rider and performer in the live shows and well as the researcher and costume designer Catherine is the one to ask if you have any questions!

5* Reviews and Recommendations for their Shows and film work

“Marc and Catherine are amazing. They are very patient, kind, calm and expert in what they are doing. The stunning horses they provided were perfectly behaved.” Viv Portman

Our beautiful horses are the real stars of our shows and include the majestic jet black Friesian Stallion Asgard and his best friends Zorro and D’artagnon. Also, our pure white Andalusian Stallion Curioso Maximus and his friends Pegasus and Guinness. And not to be left out we have our gorgeous spotty Appaloosa brothers Harry and Apollo. You can see more of the horses and find out about them on our website and follow their stories on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

We love to work with people and companies who want the best horses and talent which we hand-select and provide with care, attention and friendliness. Not just any equestrian display team or horse trainer, we are The Cavalry of Heroes! And we are proud of our name and what it stands for:
