Vainglory took part in many ceremonial events such as the Queen’s Birthday Parade, Queen’s Life Guard, Diamond Jubilee, and the Royal Wedding in 2011 as an Officer’s Charger. Vainglory was also part of the world famous Household Cavalry’s Musical Ride.

Vainglory was hugely influential as a school master. Soldiers need to complete Phase 2 training at the Household Cavalry Training Wing (HCTW) at Windsor with a 12-week riding course, where they learn the basics of military equitation and horse welfare.

Due to his great attitude and confidence, during his last few years of service he took on the very important role as Director of Music’s Charger, leading the Mounted Band.
