Buffalo Soldiers pay a visit to St. Augustine High
Senior Drew DeLatte and sophomore Tavis Smith demonstrate horsemanship to fellow St. Augustine classmates as members of the Buffalo Soldiers Riding Club, New Orleans chapter. The Soldiers teach the value of hard work, education, self-development.
DeLatte studied horses during a summer equine management program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Stockbridge School of Agriculture. Smith has his own horse-training service. They explained the history of the Buffalo Soldiers who were African Americans who served in the segregated U.S. Army between 1866 and 1951.
