RCMP Musical Ride returns to Three Hills

RCMP Musical

Three Hills Legion and Three Hills Elks, in partnership with the Three Hills RCMP, are excited to be bringing the RCMP Musical Ride back again to Three Hills on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.

Representing a colourful tradition and ceremony through the horse and the scarlet uniform, the RCMP created a spectacle known around the world as the Musical Ride. Formed in 1873 by the North West Mounted Police, the Musical Ride provides Canadians, from coast to coast, with the opportunity to experience part of our heritage and national identity. Today, in keeping with tradition, the Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of 28 riders and horses, a farrier, a technical production manager and three Non-Commissioned Officers who travel with the Musical Ride on tour.

The Musical Ride arrives in Three Hills July 22nd and public viewing of horses in stables will be available at Golden Valley Equestrian Centre until the evening of July 25th. The performance itself will be at 6:30 p.m. after a fun filled afternoon of activities at the Three Hills School including a BBQ/concession stand, displays, RCMP dog presentation, and pre show entertainment.

An event of this calibre requires many hours of hard work, volunteers and financial resources. We are asking for your support in making this event a success by participating in our “ADOPT A HORSE” program for $350.00. For this cost, we will have your name/organization posted to the horse of your choice’s stable, for the duration of their visit, as well as announced on the PA system and in the programme outlining the day’s events. Your money will go towards the costs of their bedding and feed for the horses and towards making the live show and safety fair a success. If you are unable to participate in our “Adopt a Horse” program, cash donations are also being accepted. Please contact Colleen Eyjolfson, Three Hills RCMP, at 403-443-5539 to sponsor a horse or make a donation.

We are very excited and honoured to be hosting such an event again and your support would be greatly appreciated by the RCMP Musical Ride, the organizing committee and our community.
