Sgt. Ruben Troyer, senior horse trainer, Caisson platoon, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), pulls the reigns of Rambler, a Caisson horse, to slow him down during a horse training session at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Va., earlier this month. Troyer spends up to two months training each Caisson horse, ensuring the horse is able to follow directions given by its rider and pull a Caisson or two-wheeled horse-drawn vehicle for military funerals.
