The Assam Valley Light Horse regiment was raised in 1891 and formed part of the Cavalry Reserve in the British Indian Army. The regimental headquarters was at Dibrugarh in Assam. The regiment was disbanded subsequent to India's independence in 1947.

A light horse regiment was roughly equivalent to a battalion in strength (approximately 400 men) and its troops typically fought as mounted infantry rather than traditional cavalry.

A few volunteers from the regiment joined the Indian Mounted Infantry Corps in 1899.
