NSW Mounted Police Unit farewelled as they leave for Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant Print E-mail

The NSW Mounted Police Unit is on its way to London to make final preparations for their performance at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

The Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher, and NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione joined the Commander of Major Events and Incident Group Commander, Assistant Commissioner Alan Clarke, to farewell the officers at Sydney International Airport today (Tuesday 1 May 2012).

The pageant, 'The World Comes To Windsor', will take place at Windsor Castle on 10-13 May and will feature 550 horses from across the world to represent countries the Queen has visited on more than 250 State visits.

The horses will be accompanied by more than 1000 human performers including riders, dancers and musicians from 16 countries, including Canada, India, Russia, Chile and Australia.

The public event will take place over the first three evenings and the Queen will attend the final show on Sunday 13 May 2012, with guest artists and narrators joining the performers for the night.


Commissioner Andrew Scipione said the performance at the pageant will be another proud achievement for the Mounted Police Unit.

"NSW mounted officers have been supporting and protecting the people of New South Wales for 187 years," the Commissioner said.

"In addition to providing assistance in high-visibility policing operations, they play an important role at ceremonial and protocol engagements, and they are regularly invited to perform at major events.

"They have already been privileged to have been involved in historical events such as the 1988 Bicentenary celebrations, the 2000 Olympics Torch Relay, and the 2005 and 2010 Sydney productions of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

"I could not be more proud to see our Mounted Police Unit take centre stage at The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, especially during our 150th Anniversary year
," Commissioner Scipione said.



...Australiana ride....

 


The Mounted Police Unit will present a spectacular Australiana ride for the jubilee, choreographed with six traditional Aboriginal dancers, demonstrations by Maoris and Cook Island dancers to the music of the New Zealand Defence Force Band.

The unit will also have the privilege of riding the Queen's Household Cavalry for the display.

NSW Mounted Police Commander, Inspector Kirsten McFadden, said performing at the Diamond Jubilee will be a career highlight for her officers.

"The pageant will feature some of the world's best equestrian performers and we are delighted to be among them," Inspector McFadden said.

"We are fortunate to be recognised for our contribution within the NSW Police Force and our dedication to the community. A lot of training, preparation and hard work goes into being a member of the team, as well performing operational duties at major incidents and events.

"This is such a prestigious event and we are pleased to not only represent NSW Police Force and New South Wales, but also Australia.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we appreciate the support from our corporate sponsors Qantas, the Police Credit Union and R.M. Williams for their contributions to help us make this trip
," Insp McFadden said.
