For the first time in seven years, the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride will be returning to southwest Saskatchewan. 

This year’s tour will be making a stop in Herbert on Wednesday, June 8, at 1:00pm at the Herbert Stampede rodeo grounds, and this event is being made possible thanks to some generous support from the community. 

“We’ve already got about 700 students attending the event and we’re fortunate enough that the students were able to attend free of charge because we’ve had some partnerships with some individuals who’ve helped us put the ride on,” said Michelle Mackow, Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Herbert. “Those partners are SORE Oilfield Services and Chadwin Trucking, they’re owned and operated by a past Herbert resident, Harry Martens, and they’ve donated the hay and the bedding and are taking care of the delivery of it for us. Robertson rentals is providing us with some free rentals and, most importantly, the Stampede Association here in Herbert have built a great facility and recently added bleachers to the arena and can seat about 1200 people, and the association has generously permitted the Town of Herbert to use the rodeo grounds free of charge.” 

Advance tickets are available for $8 in-person with cash or cheque only at the Town Office in Herbert and will also be available for $10 at the gate prior to the event. 

The RCMP Musical Ride will also make stops in Yorkton, Melville, Saskatoon, Perdue, Assiniboia, Lloydminster, Strasbourg, and Moose Jaw in its tour of Saskatchewan through the month of June.
