It’s a unique piece of Canadian showmanship and it’s coming to Metro Vancouver this year.
Touching down in various BC communities throughout the summer, the RCMP Musical Ride tour will also stop in a number of Lower Mainland municipalities.
A full troop of 32 riders (and their horses, of course) take part in the event.
The typically half-hour-long show features intricate drills and choreography, including the famous “Dome” formation, which was once featured on the back of the Canadian fifty-dollar bill, to the exciting “Charge” movement, where lances are lowered and the riders’ mounts launch into a gallop.
This year’s Musical Ride will stop in these Lower Mainland communities on the following dates:
- Abbotsford: August 3 to 5 (during Abbotsford Agrifair)
- Richmond: August 14 (presented by City of Richmond & Richmond RCMP)
- Burnaby: August 15 (presented by City of Burnaby)
- Langley: August 31 and September 1 (presented by City of Langley)
