Our Story

“Become part of the enchanting story of a Knight and his Lady and the world that grew up around them and discover for yourself the incredible horses and valiant riders.”

Set up by Horse Trainer Marc Lovatt and consultant Catherine Anderson-Lovatt, The Cavalry of Heroes provides quality horses and carriages for live shows, events and film.  Where our happy, healthy horses are the real stars of the shows; trained and loved by the Cavalry’s dedicated team.

Our story is one of romance and epic adventure, inspired by all those stories of heroes and chivalry, we delight in bringing a bit of magic, hope and fun back into the world.

“Incredibly impressed with the jousters! Everytime I saw them, they were happy and upbeat. The shows ran promptly to time and were really entertaining. They went above and beyond by roaming the building in character [with permission] and were genuinely a wonderful bunch to work with” Delapre Abbey
