The Romans Ride Again

See the riders of Hadrian’s Cavalry demonstrate their equestrian skills as they set their chargers through their paces with skills at arms whilst on horseback.

Meet and greet the horses and their riders, see up close and personal the equipment available to them during the Roman era.

Hadrian’s Cavalry explores the role and daily life of the Roman army’s cavalry forces in a unique wall-wide exhibition that stretches the full 150 miles of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site area – from Maryport in the west to South Shields in the east.

Hadrian’s Cavalry is funded primarily through Arts Council England’s Museum Resilience Fund and managed by a partnership of heritage organisations from across Hadrian’s Wall.
