Friendly people. Beautiful horses. I was there for the annual open house which has groups from all across the Rcmp represented. A great event for the family. No shows at this time so we will need to go back in June.

Very informative tour about the Musical Ride. Our tour director had shown us a video of the event which is very impressive. We were able to see the stables, and some of the horses too.

Our grand kids live just a few blocks from the Centre, and when we often come to Ottawa for a visit, we always walk to the Centre with them. And then around the back to usually see the horses out in the fields. Or you can take part in a formal stable tour, if available when you are there. Sometimes... More

The tour of the stables is not available from 18Dec to 3Jan. Shame but can not be helped. We did get to meet a few if the horses which had been put out for the morning.

We were fortunate enough to be able to fit this in in our tour. It was well worth the visit even though we're not into horses and also they were away on a tour. It was a great guide.

We were in a tour group - had a tour of the stables and small exhibit area, then out to see the horses train and practice. This was amazing, we were able to walk fairly close, I could hear the hooves and snorting of the horses. For us from the U.S. this was really a spectacular stop.

You start in the museum, information about horse gifts between Canada and the queen and the royal landau is stored there. Moving on to the farrier's shop, saddle room and... More

Interesting overview of not only RCMP musical ride, but also the other responsibilities the RCMP has. Tour guide provided a good overview of the RCMP including a nice tour through the barn. RCMP officer was very accommodating taking a horse out of a stall, shows real pride!

There is a lot of information in this display...more than I expected or had time for. It gives you details about the history of the RCMP and this musical ride. We were lucky enough to see them going through drills. They also have the royal landau on display, shining to perfection over 100 years old. You can also get a... More
