RCMP's Musical Ride to be performed in Salmon Arm on Canada Day

The RCMP’s Musical Ride will be showcased at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds during the Canada Day long weekend.

For about 30 minutes per show, 32 police officers and their horses will perform intricate formations and drills set to music, demanding control, timing and coordination.

The Rotary Club of Salmon Arm and the Salmon Arm and Shuswap Lake Agricultural Association, in cooperation with the City of Salmon Arm, will be hosting the event, which includes three performances.

There will be a show at 1 pm on July 1, 1 pm on July 2 and 5 pm on July 2.

It is believed that the first public performance of what evolved into the Musical Ride was performed in 1876 in Fort Macleod, Alta.

The Musical Ride has become a symbol of tradition, honour and pride that is recognized on a global scale.

It supports front-line police operations by building positive relationships, supporting recruiting efforts and promoting the RCMP’s image.

This year is the RCMP’s 150th anniversary.

Tickets to the Musical Ride can be purchased here.
