    HISTORY

    The Association Cup was first suggested as an inter troop competition within the Australian Light Horse Association  by Jerry Murphy in the mid 1990’s. The events were designed with input from Lighthorsemen from the militia period to keep alive the skills and horsemanship of the original Lighthorse.

    It was proposed that it be conducted along similar lines to the Prince of Wales Cup
    The Prince of Wales Cup was competed for by troops of about 30 mounted troopers.

    The first running of the Association Cup was held in Roma, Queensland as part of the “Roma Remembers” celebration on 20th – 21st September 2003.

    It is hoped that the event is run close to Beersheba Day each year so as to increase the profile of the Australian Light Horse Association. However, it may be advantageous to run the event in conjunction with a local event if that will increase public awareness.
