The Brummie Lancers


Via Horse and Hound:

A group of Birmingham taxi-drivers swapped their cabs for horseback and lances as they displayed the art of tent pegging at the English Heritage Festival of History last weekend (16-17 July).

Prince Malik’s Lancers was founded by Gulbahar Khan, originally from Kashmir but now a city cab driver living in Erdington, two years and a half years ago.

He started keeping horses here about 30 years ago before a team consisting of three other cabbies — his brother Gulzar Khan, Arshad Moheemd and Massart Abbas — was formed.
