The RCMP Musical Ride

The RCMP Musical Ride is coming to town!

The RCMP Musical Ride consists of a troop of 32 riders and 32 beautiful black Hanoverian horses. Together they perform drills and precise formations set to music. It’s a great show of Canadian culture and also history – the drills and use of lances date back to the late 1800s. The show even includes a cavalry style “charge” which is a crowd pleaser.

The Musical Ride is touring across Canada in celebration of Canada’s 150th  birthday. They are visiting all ten Provinces and one Territory. This week you can catch them in Burnaby at Swangard Stadium on August 18, and in Vancouver at the PNE on August 19, 20, 22 and 23. On August 21 they’ll be in Maple Ridge at the Maple Ridge AG Association grounds.

We saw them a couple of years ago and just loved the beautiful horses with their sleek black coats contrasting with the red serge of the riders.
