Hitlerjugend: An In-Depth History: HJ-Reiter
by Arvo L. Vercamer

One of the smaller HJ organizations was the HJ-Reiter. This organization focused its activities on equestrian events. Members were eventually re-routed to serve in the cavalry formations of the Wehrmacht or in military units utilizing horse-drawn equipment. The overwhelming majority of the Reiter-HJ recruits came from non-urban locations. The HJ-Reiter component worked closely with the much larger NS Reiterkorps (NSRK).
