The Ride

Horses have always been an important part of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). In the early years, they were used for transportation, but now they are a central part of the world-renowned spectacle that is a living symbol of Canada — the Musical Ride.


The Musical Ride developed from a desire by early members of the North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) to not only compete amongst themselves and perform tricks on horseback to alleviate the monotony of endless riding drills, but to display their riding ability and entertain the local community.
