RCMP Musical Ride returns to Langley

Famous equine formation team will perform Aug. 23-25 at Thunderbird Show Park

The RCMP Musical Ride returns to Langley this weekend.

The RCMP Musical Ride is coming to Langley, Aug. 23 to 25, at the Thunderbird Show Park.

Proceeds from the ticket sales for the Ride will go to the Special Olympics.

“It’s always exciting to see the RCMP Musical Ride come to our community. The Ride represents the proud traditions of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada. We are particularly fortunate the proceeds will benefit such a worthwhile cause as the Special Olympics,” said Langley RCMP Supt. Derek Cooke.

Members of the Musical Ride are police officers who have volunteered for duty with the Musical Ride. The Musical Ride is performed by a full troop of 32 riders and horses, and consists of the execution of a variety of intricate figures and calvary drill, choreographed to music.

Demanding utmost control, timing and co-ordination, these movements are formed by individual horses and riders in sets of two, four and eight at the trot and canter.

There will be three shows at Thunderbird Show Park on Friday, Aug. 23 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday show at 5:30 p.m.

The stables will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and the public is encouraged to visit the police officers and horses of the Musical Ride before and after performances.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12. Visit www.ticketweb.ca or call 1-888-222-6608 to purchase tickets. Tickets are available through pre-sale only. There will be no ticket sales at the gate.

Thunderbird Show Park is at 6975-248 Street.
