The Role of the Fort Garry Horse

The Fort Garry Horse is an Armoured Reconnaissance unit in the Canadian Army Reserve based at McGregor Armoury in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

As an Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment, part of 38 Canadian Brigade Group, our role is to provide accurate tactical information on the enemy and ground to the Brigade. To do this we use light, highly mobile vehicles in conjunction with communications and surveillance equipment.

Co-Located with the FGH at McGregor Armoury is 31 Engineer Squadron, a part of 38 Combat Engineer Regiment. The role of Engineers is to permit friendly forces to live, move and fight on the field of battle and to deny the same to the enemy. The secondary role of Engineers is to fight as infantry when required.
