What I didn't know until a few days ago is that officers can apply to train for the musical ride. What is the musical ride? I am so glad you asked! It is a performance that is set to music and showcases the talent of the horse and rider as they maneuver through various formations. Originally the RCMP were truly "mounted" police officers, that rode horse in the line of duty. As the world advanced in technology this was done away with however.
My pictures really don't do justice to the performance but give a little glimpse of what we got to see. I don't know if I will ever get another chance to see it, so I was pretty glad that I got a chance.
It was pretty cool too that they came to our small town. The rodeo grounds were so packed it seemed like half the town was there!And here are Niece and Boo-boo enjoying the evening!
