RCMP Musical Ride gallops into town
Don’t be alarmed this evening by the sound of a low-flying four-engine military plane as it makes its way over the Twin Oaks equestrian facility in South Richmond.
The RCMP’s Musical Ride is in town today, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., complete with a team of 32 horses and riders for a one-of-a-kind choreographed show.
Tickets remain available at tinyurl.com/MusicalRideRichmond.
While the gates will open at 5:30 p.m., the rain-or-shine pre-show starts at 6:15 p.m., with the musical ride at 7:15 p.m.
There will be plenty of parking available in the field directly to the south of Twin Oaks, and the bleachers will accomodate between 800 and 1,000 people.
Five food trucks will be available on site, and there will be plenty of things for kids to do, including a police dog demonstration, and the Richmond Mounties specialty teams will be there as well, including the helicopter, emergency response team, and marine unit.
Musical Ride is a rich Canadian tradition that dates back 137 years.
Members of Musical Ride are all police officers who have at least two years experience in active police work before volunteering for duty with the team.
The Musical Ride is presented by the Steveston Rotary Club.
