RCMP Musical rides into Penticton

The RCMP Musical Ride will be taking over the South Okanagan Events Centre this weekend, with two shows on Saturday.

It’s part of the annual tradition that showcases a full troop of 32 riders and horses, plus the member in charge. The ride consists of the execution of a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drills choreographed to music.

Members of the Musical Ride are police officers with at least two years of active duty, who have volunteered for the honour.

Months of training, practice and many kilometres around the riding school make horse and rider one. They must not only appear in the Musical Ride, but on Parliament Hill, in parades, special events and have the ability to travel and adapt to different environments.

The RCMP Musical Ride tours throughout Canada, the United States and other international venues. They perform at approximately forty to fifty locations a year between the months of May and October.

After a quick rest, the group moves on to Armstrong July 24 to perform at the Interior Provincial Exhibition.
