RCMP Musical Ride
RCMP Musical Ride - Robert Patterson

Crowds of thousands gathered under blue skies this weekend to watch the RCMP Musical Ride.

Thirty-two riders and their horses performed complex and thrilling cavalry figures and drills choreographed to music – a tradition since 1876.

The events at Topaz Park and Royal Roads attracted nearly 15,000 spectators combined.

Every single one was treated to majestic performances from the horses and riders, the massed piped band, and the 5th Regiment Band (RCA).

Here are a few shots of the fun from both days:
