Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard
UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS MOUNTED COLOR GUARD
The United States Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard has represented the Marine Corps in events across the United States for the last 52 years. This is the last remaining Mounted Color Guard within the Marine Corps today. The Marines primarily ride palomino mustangs, adopted from the Bureau of Land Management’s “Adopt a Horse” program. The horses and Marines train together weekly to maintain their performance readiness. The Mounted Color Guard strives to maintain its traditions; and, standards of excellence fitting their storied past, and it is a privilege of every Marine who has been given the opportunity to be a part of its legacy. Staff Sergeant Esteban Jauregui (How-Diggy) is the Staff Non-Commissioned Officer-in-Charge of the Mounted Color Guard, and this unit is stationed at Marine Corps Logistics Base, Barstow, California. It is an honor to have the Marines perform all four nights of the PRCA Big Sky Pro Rodeo.
