Soldiers from 2nd Squadron, 13th Cavalry Regiment recently completed their 2023 spur ride. Earning your spurs is a time honored tradition that continues to live on in the cavalry. Soldiers must pass a series of physical and mental tests relevant to the cavalry, including a 12-mile road march. After successful completion, Soldiers are inducted into the Order of the Spur.
The spur ride is a test of both physical and mental toughness. Soldiers must be able to endure long hours of physical exertion, while also maintaining their mental focus. The tests are designed to simulate the challenges that Soldiers face in combat.
The spur ride is also a testament of teamwork and camaraderie. Soldiers must work together to complete the tests, and they must support each other through the challenges. It is a rite of passage for cavalry soldiers, and it is a source of great pride for those who earned their spurs.
Congratulations to the 2nd Squadron, 13th Cavalry Regiment on completing their 2023 spur ride! We are proud of your accomplishments, and look forward to seeing what you will accomplish in the future.
