Three U.S. Army Dragoons riding on their horses in San Diego California. 1840's Soldiers on horse back in Old Town San Diego California painted by RD Riccoboni. In the early days (1840's), the only mounted unit in the US Army was the 1st Dragoons. In 1849, the 2nd Dragoons were formed, as was another unit called the Regiment of Mounted Rifles. Dragoons were mounted infantry in California. They carried a weapon known as a musketoon in the early days, which was a shortened musket. Later, they carried carbines. They basically used their horses to move them from place to place, not for fighting.Most, if not all, of their fighting was done dismounted.
