This was the opening salute. The central officer held his cavalry sword straight up in front of his forehead ... but I wasn't able to capture that moment.

Hi Faye! Thank you for the extra information. : )

Just a note to your last comment...Each rider is allowed two years only with the Musical Ride and they love to travel worldwide. The riders were miffed at Expo 86 as that meant they were stationed in Vancouver for a full five of their 24 months...can you imagine how tortuous that must have been? :)

Hi Brian. That's great! I didn't realize they took this group over to England for that special occasion! Thanks for the extra information!!

It's ALL Suzy's fault...she purposely misconstrued what I meant! :DDD

Laurajane!! I almost missed your note! Yes, I had a wonderful view so I took ... um ... quite a few pictures. : )

Thank you Jim. There were 34 horses ... 32 in the show and two standing around looking important!

Thank you Lorna. I was thrilled to have an unobstructed view!!! : )

Yes, I saw them. I hope you will be able to see them in one of these pictures ... but not this one.

Suzy, these HORSES ( !! ) each have a maple leaf design on their left rump. It is not a brand or even a tatoo.

'The horses also have a maple leaf brushed onto their rumps; this is done with a wet brush and a stencil before each performance.' taken from

I realize this is way more than you wanted to know!!!

And Faye I also know who started this whole discussion!!! : l

Great view of the festivities, Cathy!

I'll never tell! :)))

Whose rump? :)

What I love, too, is the maple leaf brushed onto/into their rump. :)))
