RCMP Musical Ride is confirmed for the 2016 Ancaster Fair

The Musical Ride

A spectacle known around the world…

Members of the Musical Ride are first and foremost police officers who, after at least two years of active police work, volunteer for duty with the Musical Ride. Most members are non-riders prior to their equestrian training with the RCMP; however, once they complete the courses of instruction, they not only become riders but ambassadors of goodwill. Working through a unique medium, they promote the RCMP’s image throughout Canada and the world. RCMP members only remain with the Musical Ride for two years with half transferring out each year which ensures an annual rotation of approximately one third (33%) of the riders.

Today, in keeping with tradition, the Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of thirty-two riders and horses, plus the member in charge. The Musical Ride consists of the execution of a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drill choreographed to music. Demanding utmost control, timing and coordination, these movements are formed by individual horses and riders, in two’s, four’s and eight’s at the trot and at the canter. Months of training, practice and many kilometres/miles around the riding school make horse and rider one. The horses must not only appear in the Musical Ride, 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.

Tentative Schedule

  • 2015: Atlantic Provinces and Saskatchewan
  • 2016: Southern Ontario and Manitoba
  • 2017: Canadian Tour – 150th anniversary of Canada
  • 2018: North Western Quebec, Northern Ontario and British Columbia
  • 2019: Quebec and Alberta

World renowned

The RCMP Musical Ride tours throughout Canada, as well as international venues, performing at approximately forty to fifty locations a year between the months of May and October. Thirty-six riders, thirty-six horses, a farrier, three non-commissioned officers (NCOs), and officer in charge travel with the Musical Ride.
