These are images from the famous RCMP Musical Ride performing in Lewisporte, NL in August/2011, as well as some captures from the RCMP Training Academy in Regina, Saskatchewan in Feb/2016. The Musical Ride members are police officers who volunteer for duty with the Ride. Most are non-riders prior to their equestrian training; however, once they complete the courses of instruction, they not only become riders but ambassadors of goodwill, by promoting the RCMP's image throughout Canada and around the world. The Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of thirty-two riders and horses. The Ride consists of the execution of a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drill choreographed to music. The horses not only appear in the Musical Ride, but also on Parliament Hill, in parades, special events, and have the ability to travel and adapt to different environments, not to mention hours of petting and photo-taking that the horses must patiently endure.
