To celebrate, there will be horse crafts, horse petting and brushing opportunity, cookie decorating and refreshments. The artist and the RCMP Mounted Riders will also be in attendance. The formal program for this event starts at 1:45 p.m., with free activities from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The installation “Standing Guard” features a life-sized stallion watching over his herd, inviting people to the RCMP station and giving visitors a sense of family, community, respect and safety. The horses are made from various pieces of scrap metal and many of the tools, springs, and car parts were donated by Strathcona County residents.
