Ride on! USMC experts and Special Forces saddle up

Gotta salute the United States Marine Corps and Army Special Forces in this new training initiative.

Special Forces personnel are saddling up for horsemanship training at the USMC Mountain Warfare Training Center in the Sierra Mountains outside of Bridgeport, California, as USA Today reports.

Marine instructors are training Army Special Forces members to ride. Participants are learning trail riding, mounted shooting, and other equestrian skills.

Many of the horses apparently are mustangs, brought in and trained by inmates and others.

They’re even taking along pack mules.

Take a look at this video footage:


Giddy up, guys. Let’s hear it for the US Marines and Army Special Forces … and their horses!
