Contingent of U.S. cavalry arrive at a grove on training grounds of Fort Crook, Nebraska. They are mounted in formation. On their commander's order, the entire formation backs up and moves forward, again, in unison. The cavalrymen dismount. In another sequence, a small group of cavalry gallop from the distance, up a hill and stop short of the camera. Next scene shows dismounted cavalry lined up in front of stables. They mount their horses in unison, at a command. Their commander faces them, as three mounted buglers, behind him sound a bugle call. His horse paces about a bit as the bugles blow. In next sequence, several dismounted soldiers set up an artillery observation post, including a telescope on a tripod, in a field, as a mounted officer watches. An officer directs a cavalryman who sets a flag in the field. Back at the stables, mounted officers lead a group of soldiers pulling caissons and artillery pieces, with teams of horses. Dismounted soldiers are assembled with grazing horses, at the grove seen earlier. An officer arrives and issues an order. The soldiers mount and form up before moving out as a unit.
