Maxwell Field horse stables
In 1932, the horse stables on Maxwell Field were completed costing $20,000, which housed 45 government and five private horses with all the modern conveniences including hot and cold running water. Equestrian training was required for all aviation cadets in order for them to feel comfortable in the saddle, should the need arise. In 1940 the stables became a recreational outlet for soldiers to ride during their leisure time as a way to improve the quality of life for Maxwell Field Soldiers. (U.S. Air Force photo)
