The  Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Musical Ride, will be performing at Banff, Alberta on Monday, July 26, 2010 for two shows at 1:00pm and 6:00pm. The Musical Ride represents a colourful Canadian tradition. The troop of 32 horses and riders will perform a variety of cavalry drills choreographed to music. Working through a unique medium, they support the RCMP community policing efforts throughout Canada.
The horses will be stabled at Warner Stables allowing for a procession down Banff Avenue before and after each show creating a wonderful photo opportunity. The general public is able to view the horses and speak with the riders at the stables in between the shows on Monday and during select times on Tuesday, July 27.
Tickets are on sale at the Banff Centre Box Office adjacent to the Eric Harvie Theatre and at the Old Crag Cabin at 211A Bear Street.
