Since 1897, Culver’s Horsemanship Program has been teaching students the qualities of wisdom, courage, moderation, and justice by placing them in the saddle.  Cavalry soldiers are no longer in demand so the Horsemanship Department has developed a progressive curriculum designed to develop character and leadership while learning to control and manage the horse.  The Department of Horsemanship is a proud member of the elite Culver Summer School “Center of Excellence” .

Presidential Inaugural Parade

In 2017 Culver participated in our 17th Presidential Inaugural Parade appearance.

A Presidential Tradition

Following up on a pledge made at the 1911 dedication of Culver’s Mess Hall, Indiana governor-turned-vice president Thomas Marshall invited the entire corps of Culver cadets to escort him in the 1913 Woodrow Wilson Inaugural parade. Horses, boys, and faculty-staff made the trip by rail, returning four years later for the second inauguration of Wilson-Marshall.
