Luke is a Black Percheron Gelding born on May 12th, 1999. For fifteen years, he served this country with honor as a Military Working Horse with the U.S. Army Caisson Platoon, also referred to as “The Old Guard,” at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia. He was ridden as a “Wheel Horse,” meaning he was one of the horses hitched closest to the funeral caisson, or wagon that pulls the caskets of fallen military members to their final resting places at Arlington National Cemetery. Luke was sent to Cornell University Hospital for Animals prior to his arrival at Equine Advocates on May 3, 2023. This noble equine veteran deserves our deepest gratitude for his years of loyal service to the country. We are so proud to have him spend his retirement years with us.

Luke is proudly sponsored by supporters from The Villages, Florida; Westfield, New Jersey; Averill Park, New York; Brooklyn, New York; Valatie, New York; Houston, Texas; Fort Myer, Virginia and Springfield, Virginia.
