The Olympic torch is being carried through Fort MacLeod, Alberta Monday morning, and I was one of us chose to ride a horse to escort the runners in full North West Mounted Police uniform! Ive been so lucky to be chosen for a lot of important things to do with the Fort. Whoop Up days parade, Santa Clause Parade and now this :D I'm very excited. Just thought I would share :D

Hopefully I can get someone to take pictures! I will ask my buddy Tim if he will for me :) Its really early in the morning. We have to be in the town at 6am to have time to catch the horses, groom, get dressed, and get out there.

Well it was AMAZING! so much fun, and waking up at 5am was totally. worth it.

Had a couple of embarrassing moments. As I got out of the truck to get Mattie (the horse I rode, same as the Whoop Up Days parade) my pants fell down O_O. THEN just as I was about to get on her, they fell down AGAIN. And, after, I was running through the barn, and they fell. Again. Apparently, my pants were waaay too big. lol

We got pictures, but they aren't on my camera, so I have to wait for my friend to put them on Facebook before I am able to put them on here :)

Well it is BUT it goes over top of the coat... and the pants went up to my arm pits, so I had to roll them up.. didn't work to well lol. Someone took the pants I had over the summer, that were fixed to fit me better, so I had a pair of MASSIVE pants to wear. Im a very tiny person lol.

Here is a decent picture from the summer of ours and the horses uniform. I am on the sorrel, Jack. They sold him though, because the ride is supposed to be only bay horses.
