ABC Wednesday - M is for Musical Ride

This week at ABC Wednesday the focus is on M.

In June we had visited Woodbine for the Queen's Plate and saw the RCMP perform thier Musical Ride. It is a precision ride, by mounties - the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

It is an amazing performance, one I've only seen a handful of times.

For more information on its history, tour dates and other information check here.

Be sure to check for other great entries at ABC Wednesday.

That must have been fascinating to watch. Percision drill work is always beautiful.

A long while since I saw the Musical Ride, but remember it as being very impressive. Thank you for posting this and for the Memories.

This sort of precision riding is amazing - the sort of thing the crowd never wants to stop.

I bet it was very wonderful to watch.

Not familiar with this tradition; quite interesting.

You know, I've never seen the RCMP musical ride and I know they've done it here in Vancouver. I really must try to get out to one of their shows.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and thx for stopping by. That CPAP is really a nuisance and I'm hoping I'll get used to it.
