A new 3D virtual reality display at the RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina allows visitors to saddle up and join the musical ride.

That's the well-known showcase for RCMP riders and their horses currently based in Ottawa.

The 3D version is one of a number of new exhibits at the museum this summer season. The exhibit explores the role of horses in the RCMP.

Also new this year is a feature exhibit, Sergeant Brinkworth: Police Photographer, that takes people on a journey as the camera grows from a hobbyist's pastime to a vital tool of modern police work.

It will be on display in the feature exhibit gallery from May 25 until Sept. 6, 2016.
