RCMP Musical Ride

RCMP Musical Ride to Tour Over 38 Locations Across Canada in 2023

In commemoration of its 150th anniversary, the RCMP is embarking on a special tour that will cover several provinces, including British Columbia and Alberta. 

It’ll also visit Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.

Featuring the remarkable talents of the cavalry, the Musical Ride showcases a complete troop of 32 riders and their horses performing synchronized cavalry drills set to music.

It’ll showcase the iconic “Dome” formation, once depicted on the Canadian fifty-dollar bill, to the “Charge” movement where lances are lowered, and riders gallop forward. The RCMP Musical Ride promises to be an unforgettable spectacle.

In addition to the tour, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride supports local charities and non-profit organizations by visiting up to 50 communities across Canada. This’ll be done between May and October each year.

For those interested in witnessing traditional RCMP ceremonies, Regina offers the Sergeant Major’s Parade and Sunset-Retreat Ceremony. 

Meanwhile, the Musical Ride Stables in Ottawa, the home of the RCMP Musical Ride, welcomes visitors until September 1, 2023. Take a closer look at its tour schedule below.
