RCMP Musical Ride – not visiting BC in 2019

RCMP Musical Ride Canada 150 ToueThe RCMP Musical Ride is a quintessential Canadian experience and, once again, the RCMP Musical Ride is touring all over our country. Metro Vancouver is very lucky to have the horses & riders visit Hope, Abbotsford, Burnaby, and Langley.

The RCMP Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of 32 riders and horses, plus the member in charge. The Musical Ride sees the horses and their riders complete a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drill choreographed to music. Demanding utmost control, timing and coordination, the movements are performed by individual horses and riders, in two’s, four’s and eight’s at the trot and at the canter.

One of the most recognizable Musical Ride formations is the “Dome,”once featured on the back of the Canadian fifty-dollar bill. The highlight of the Musical Ride is, without a doubt, the CHARGE when lances, with their red and white pennons, are lowered and the riders and their mounts launch into the gallop. The conclusion of the performance is the March Past performed to the strains of the RCMP’s Regimental March where the Musical Ride traditionally salutes the guest of honour.
