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.
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.
