Baker's Horse was raised in 1878 and was disbanded at the close of hostilities, but was re-established at Port Elizabeth on the commencement of the Zulu War in 1879. As part of Colonel Wood’s Column, under Redvers Buller, Baker's Horse was notably engaged at Inhlobane on 28 March 1879, when the unit had 8 killed and 2 seriously wounded.
