The Hampton Roads Buffalo Riders held its 18th Annual Historic Parade of Horses on Saturday (May 12) beginning at I.C. Norcom High School, culminating with a parade in downtown Portsmouth via High Street.

Following the parade, the Riders returned to the high school for a Q& A session, horseback rides, and other activities.

The Buffalo Riders were organized in 1997 to honor the legacy of both African American cowboys and the history of the Buffalo Soldiers. The Buffalo Soldiers served on horseback in the 9th and 10th Calvary of the U.S. Army in 1866.

The event featured roughly 15 horseman, the Buffalo Soldiers Mark Mathews chapter of Petersburg, VA., a CORVETTE club, MOTORCYCLE CLUBS, an RV Club, church groups, and the Portsmouth Fire Department. Trooper Ken Wright is President of The Buffalo Riders
