Welcome to the Blackhorse Association

The Blackhorse Association, founded in 1969 and incorporated in 1970, is a non-profit, charitable, organization dedicated to serving our country and our fellow Blackhorse Troopers and their families. We remain committed to our founding principles: to honor comrades who gave their lives in the service of our country and Regiment, to preserve and strengthen comradeship formed in the Regiment, to proclaim and publicize the achievements and traditions of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, to support the troopers actively serving in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, and to establish and provide educational scholarships for the children of the Regiment.


As a major part of our mission, The Blackhorse Association conducts frequent reunions to bring together Blackhorse veterans and their families from all eras of Regimental service.


The Scholarship Fund has provided nearly $600,000 to help educate the children of Blackhorse Troopers killed or wounded in action and has now been expanded to assist all children of the Blackhorse.


Your membership helps us support the troops, veterans, and families of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. Membership is open to all who served in the Regiment, as well as friends and family members.

The Blackhorse Association is totally dependent on contributions from our members. Your generous support helps fund The Scholarship Fund for our kids, as well as the basic operations of the Association.
