RCMP Musical Ride Coming to 11 Saskatchewan Communities
The world-renowned RCMP Musical Ride will perform in 11 Saskatchewan communities this summer from May 22 – June 16, 2011.
The Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of thirty-two riders and horses, plus the member in charge. It consists of the execution of a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drill choreographed to music.
Demanding utmost control, timing and coordination, these movements are formed by individual horses and riders, in two's, four's and eight's at the trot and at the canter. Months of training, practice and many kilometres around the riding school make horse and rider one.
The horses not only appear in the Musical Ride, but on Parliament Hill, in parades and special events. They have the ability to travel and adapt to different environments, not to mention, hours of petting and photo-taking, which they patiently endure.
