A Visit to the RCMP Horse Breeding Facility

It was a fabulous fall day, a perfect afternoon to visit the iconic horses at the RCMP breeding facility in Pakenham Ontario.  My good friends Dorothea von Ow and Jerry Demetriadis pulled some strings for me (the farm is closed to the public) and for that I am eternally grateful!  A small group of us enjoyed a tour of the barns and the paddocks where true Canadian stars are bred, the Hanoverian/Thoroughbred horses that thrill audiences from coast to coast in the RCMP Musical Ride-  as well as other RCMP duties and public appearances.  Thank you to trainer/manager John Phillips for an inside peek at some of the most magnificent horses I have ever seen!
