Olympics - Day 11

Mountie war dance, originally uploaded by Jenn Platt.
Is it a martial arts competition?

Very tall acrobats?

Rhythmic gymnastics?

No! It's the Royal Canadian Mounted Police! More than that, it's their precision riding group doing The Musical Ride.

The horses were very pretty (not pictured, the maple leaf brushed into the fur on their rumps... really), the riders were great, and they all had these spear things with flags on them. Maybe it was a martial arts competition.

Now there's only one thing I can do to make this trip more quintessentially Canadian.

Good thing we already got the curling tickets.
