Yes, the world renown musical ride of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is coming to Prince Edward Island on July 9th at 8:30 PM. I heard this on the news yesterday and I had to put my ABC on hold for this breaking news.
The musical ride will be part of the Summerside Lobster Carnival. The Lobster Carnival is an opportunity to participate in all sorts of fun events, especially the cardboard boat race.
If you have never seen the Musical ride, you are in for a big treat. Imagine a combination of dance and synchronized swimming (no the horses are no in the water – it is hard to describe something with no equal) with about 40 horses often parading within inches of each other. As far as I am concerned the RCMP musical ride is unequaled in precision horse shows; the only one that comes close is Rainbow Riders. See this you tube video for a small sample. For over 100 years, the musical ride has been delighting spectators of all ages.
If you will miss them on July 9th, you can see them the day before on Lennox Island on July 8.
