Rate this:
The pageantry of the sleek black horses, their intricate dancelike steps, and the thrilling play of lances make the Musical Ride of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police an unforgettable experience. Rooted in the cavalry drills of the Great March West of 1874, the modern-day Musical Ride now represents the best in horsemanship.

In this loving homage to the Ride, Maxwell Newhouse captures its spirit -- from the riders to the equipment, the training, and the horses -- in words and art.

The story of the Ride and its spectacular horses is told through black and white drawings and wonderful full-color art that presents performances from the plains to the mountains and all over North America.

This book is a perfect gift for anyone who loves horses, and a perfect introduction to a national treasure that represents Canada around the world.
