Jfk riderless horse

Postby Samuhn В» 13.09.2019

George, with liberty to stay at any ports or places.

I lived through it, and like all Americans who were alive at the time, I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news. Every time. No, the part of the funeral procession that really strikes me in my heart of hearts is the footage of Black Jack. There are a hundred or more horses in the funeral procession, but I am always drawn to just one. I always wondered if someone taught him to do that, or if someone did something to his feet to force him to do that, or if he was just dancing sideways to draw attention to himself.

While watching the 50th Anniversary coverage of the presidential assassination and the days to follow, I again saw this horse prancing in a most unusual way.

The difference between when I saw the footage at the 25 year anniversary and this year was that I had Siri with me. I learned his name was Black Jack and his story is quite incredible.

His story teaches us that some animals are lucky enough to be recognized as having the right to their own nature and personality. Black Jack was one such animal. Infantry Regiment. He was named after General John J. Black Jack Pershing. He was first recruited into U. Military service as a military horse, but he refused to be ridden. He threw everyone who tried. His outcome could have been very grim as a result.

But fate smiled on this special animal. The Riderless Horse, also called a Caparisoned horse, is a military tradition. The horse is saddled and tacked, and a pair of boots are fitted into the stirrups facing backwards, as if the rider is saying good-bye to those who are following behind.

A handler leads him by the bridle. His spirited nature caused the Army some distress. However, a day before the Kennedy funeral procession, Black Jack was spooked by a falling metal gate.

He was so nervous, he continually reared up and PFC Carlson, who had never handled a horse before, was concerned he would be unable to hold him steady. He wanted to perform his duty flawlessly, and he did his best.

The tack remains in the JFK library to this day. He died in and was buried with full military honors. He was only the second horse in history to be buried with full military honors. His grave is in Ft. Myers, Virginia. In another blog post I remarked that I hoped there was a special place in hell for people who hurt animals. Already a member? Log in to vote.

It was standard procedure for Black Jack; horse had been the riderless horse in thousands of other military funerals, and even lived long enough to perform the same role in jfk funeral of JFK's successor, President Johnson. She was considered by some to be Blackjacks Mom. The riderless horse later came to symbolize a warrior who would ride no more. I riderless the burial and it was a sad day. I was at a western riding competition this weekend, and had to come back to this post.
