The Musical Ride of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is a formal event showcasing the equestrian skills performed by 32 cavalry who are regular members of the force. The event is held in Canada and worldwide to promote the RCMP. The first official ride was held in 1887 in Regina, District of Assiniboia, and commanded by Inspector William George Matthews.
The Musical Ride was featured on the Canadian fifty-dollar bill produced from 1969 to 1979.
