RCMP Musical Ride
We are excited to host the RCMP Musical Ride at the Calgary Stampede as they celebrate their 150th year!
Join us for performances in the Nutrien Western Events Centre as well as in the GMC Stadium. We encourage you to visit the Musical Ride members and horses before and after the performances in the Agriculture Barns. There, riders can answer any questions and introduce their horses.
A symbol of tradition, honour, and pride, the Musical Ride is a Canadian icon recognized at home and abroad. The Musical Ride supports front-line police operations by building positive relationships, supporting recruiting efforts and promoting the RCMP's image in communities in Canada and around the world.
The troop of up to 32 riders, who are all police officers, and their horses perform intricate formations and drills set to music, lasting about 30 minutes. These movements demand the utmost control, timing, and coordination.
