The tradition and heritage of this place and organization is incredible, and to get up close with the horses and some of the riders shows how the organization appreciates the people.

I've always wanted to know more about the RCMP. This museum and stables fulfilled that. I'm glad I viewed the Musuem before the tour as I had some background information. The tour was free as well. The horses were beautiful.
