Appears to be legitimately mounted, as he is wearing riding boots and spurs. If he is indeed in an infantry regiment, then perhaps he has duties with the supply wagons. Less likely, he is an officer's servant and duties include exercising the officer's horse. In this photo, he is dressed for pleasure riding and not military service.
