ICA-Horse Artillery

for the preservation of Mounted Artillery knowledge, skills and abilities


2020 ICA-HA Tournament


ICA-HA approved units are cordially invited to submit their registration for our 2020 Mounted Artillery Tournament, to be held in Front Royal, Virginia.

Judging shall be by experts designated by the directors of the ICA.

The champions will hold the ICA-HA trophy until the next tournament.

The competition will be based on the knowledge, skills and ability demonstrated as a team  harnesses, hitches, picks up, drops off, serves and recovers a cannon. Special demonstrations will include backing the team and retreat by prolong.

The minimum requirement shall be for a four-up working at the walk. New units will be allowed to submit a two-up.

Units working with a six-up, and/or at the walk/trot/canter are encouraged, but not required. Units working with a section, including caissons, and/or multiple cannon are likewise encouraged.

Unaffiliated units may submit ceremonial videos, such as caisson funerals, or parade footage to demonstrate unit safety and ability prior to attending. A sample video of a half section is attached as guidance.
