Royal Canadian Mounted
Police Musical Ride
The Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of 32 riders and horses, plus the member in charge. The Musical Ride 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 performed by individual horses and riders. The highlight of the Musical Ride is the CHARGE when lances, with their red and white pennons, are lowered and the riders and their mounts launch into the gallop.
