THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S

HORSE GUARDS ASSOCIATION

The Governor General's Horse Guards Association is open to all current serving and former members of the Governor General's Horse Guards Regiment, and friends of the Regiment. The Association provides all members of the Regimental Family with an ongoing connection to old friends and current Regimental activities. Throughout the year, the Association hosts several social events, aimed at promoting camaraderie among its members and the serving members of the Regiment.

In 2022, the Governor General's Horse Guards celebrate 200 years of Cavalry tradition and loyal service to Canada. This will be marked by a series of events throughout the year, dedicated to Captain George Taylor Denison and all those that followed, serving with the Regiment and its perpetuated units in almost every conflict facing the nation since 1822.

This all kicks off with the Trooping of the Standard on May 1st. Details on this and other events are now available on the GGHG Cavalry & Historical Society website
