The RCMP's Musical Ride is Coming to Town

Think Canadian traditions ... things that just shout "Canada!"
Few measure up to a bunch of cops on horseback ... the tradition that is the RCMP Musical Ride. The first ride was held in Regina in 1887 ... so here we are, 125 years later.
The Musical Ride appears in McGregor this Sunday ... in a fundraiser for the Windsor-Essex Therapeutic Riding Association.
32 scarlet-clad Mounties ... lances in hand ... performing those intricate manoevres.
One of those Mounties is from Leamington. Constable Sarah Brophey is a Musical Ride rookie.
