The Household Cavalry Foundation
Who we are
The Household Cavalry is a uniquely British Institution, famous worldwide for both outstanding pageantry and gallantry on the battlefield. The Household Cavalry is the Queen’s official bodyguard but the same soldiers seen on parade on state occasions also risk their lives for our country on active service.
The Household Cavalry Foundation cares for the soldiers, casualties, veterans, horses and heritage of Britain's senior regiments. Whether helping soldiers injured on operations, providing aid to veterans and their dependants or finding suitable homes for our retired horses, the HCF provides a vital support role that works to improve the lives of all of serving and ex-members of the Household Cavalry family. The HCF is entirely funded by donations from members of the public.
