All the Queen's Horses - Trotting with the RCMP's Musical Ride
Like the maple leaf, beaver or moose, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's musical rides have become emblematic of our nation.
First performed in Regina, Sask., in 1887, the event was -at first- a way for RCMP officers to show off their riding skills.
Go behind the scenes of this Canadian tradition to find out what it takes to breed an athletic horse that has enough heart and stamina to carry it through one hundred performances of the Musical Ride.
