Sooke Lion's Club and RCMP support RCMP Musical Ride

  • May. 1, 2013 12:00 p.m.

Sooke’s Lions Club will be bringing the RCMP Musical Ride to the greater Victoria region on August 17 and 18. All proceeds will be going to Vancouver Island children’s benefits, including the Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan and Vancouver Island riding for the disabled.

The Musical Ride consists of a full troop of 32 uniformed riders who, while on their horses, perform intricate figures and cavalry drills, choreographed to music. The ride travels to each province on a rotational basis every four years. This year, the B.C. ride will be held in Central Saanich.

Tickets can be obtained from the RCMP detachment at 2076 Church Road. Tickets: $10 for adults and $2 for children, and they cover admission for both days.
