    What I want to know is, How do they get the horse down the steps?
    Horses can only go up steps.


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

          Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
          Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
          The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
          The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
          The best lack all conviction, while the worst
          Are full of passionate intensity.

                commissioning

                Apparently the course is quite tough with the colour sgts having full authority .The infantry postings are the most soughtafter and potential aspirants are given time to atend interviews to gain acceptance to the regiments who may only have ,at best,a couple of vacancies.

                  Which is strange considering that post already have to have been "sponsored" by a regiment.

                  Cadets are referred to by NCOs as Mr...... Sir

                          The officer in charge of the Parade leads the newly commissioned officers up the steps on his horse.
                          The parade traditionally ends with the Adjutant riding his horse up the steps of Old College as he follows the graduating Officer Cadets through the Grand Entrance

                              nope, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) always runs three courses a year. each course is 48 weeks long and they begin in January, May and September.

                              each Sovereigns Parade turns out similar amounts of young officers.

                              officers do not fight for places during the course as they are already sponsored and they will join the Regiment / Corps of their choice upon successful completion of the course.

                              the Colour Sergeants who run the platoons are traditionally some of the finest from the various Infantry regiments and this is a well sought after post that usually leads to promotion on completion of a good tour as an instructor in RMAS.
