Does Depot teach you horse riding? Or is it like a specialty unit that you sign up to participate in the musical ride.
They do not. You apply for the ride, and you should ideally have some riding experience. You are evaluated and then accepted or not.
Last time it was taught was in the 60s I believe
1966 or 1967, as one of my field-trainers was the last troop to help clean up the stables. Recruit Training was 9 months long when equitation was part of it.

For people who re-applied what was a general wait time? 1, 2, 3 months? I know that wait times will be longer due to covid. Trying to get an idea at the very least.

PM if you like

Second time I applied it took 6 months to get my selection package. So, it can even be a wait during non-pandemic times.

Thank you for responding. Did you by chance leave off at the same step from your other application ?

If you reapply after being deferred, you start right back at the beginning unfortunately.

Any return to Depot update?

Postby Trooper2020 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 1:23 pm

Have more troops been scheduled for return to Depot yet?
Any idea about when all the troops that were sent home will be back at depot?
Just trying to get an idea if any new Troops will make it to Depot soon any insight will be appreciated.

29-31 go back July 9th. No other troops have been given notice to return yet. I’m on troop 33 so should be in the next group. Gotta get all the way back to 39 before all troops sent home are back at depot. Then I believe troop 40 was coming the weekend we got shut down.

Hope that kinda helps give you an idea what a logistical nightmare they are dealing with.

Oh, man. We didn't even get to see Troop 39. I miss seeing the new troops, they make me feel so young and full of energy at Depot.

Just found out I failed my RFI, deferred for a year

Pretty disappointed and surprised, to be honest. I failed in the sections I was most confident in and thought were the easiest for me, while I passed the sections I thought I maybe struggled in. Not really sure what to make of it as I was sure I did well on those parts they apparently weren't satisfied with, and it sounds like there is no way for me to get any explanation as to why 88)

I'll definitely be re-applying in year but I'm really not even sure how to approach it differently even if I had the chance to redo it next week. :ponder:
