Rosalina, Bernard’s trusted companion, is a cross between the Hanoverian & Thoroughbred breeds which produces a well tempered horse with the desired color and size for RCMP requirements. At the age of 6, (a life of barrel racing and cow punching just wasn’t quite enough for her…) Rosalina joined the RCMP Musical Ride Branch. After 3 years in the Musical Ride Branch, and during a two week Mounted Police Seminar (MPS) hosted for outside Canadian Mounted Law Enforcement Units, Rosalina was selected by Bernard’s unit to assist in train- ing their mounted patrols. For the past 3 years Rosalina has set the baseline for partner excellence by displaying the will of a lion and the disposition of a noble queen. She knew she had a greater purpose and wanted to serve both her country and the people around her. Luckily, Bernard’s Mounted Law Enforcement Unit recognized these qualities and desires in Rosalina. She was permanently recruited into the “the force” and established the “train the trainer” program teaching young horses how to possess supple and balanced movements while walking, trotting, cantering and stopping the “bad guys” in their tracks to boot. Rosalina worked hard to become the best police mounted patrol officer in Canada. Just ask Bernard how many times Rosalina has been in the press
for saving his behind.
Even though she’s a national mounted patrol officer hero, Rosalina still secretly thrives on the thrill of performing on stage in the Musical Ride Branch. She loves getting dressed up in her finest gear to march proudly in parades and perform at diplomatic events. Rosalina always makes it as point to stick her nose into the camera tent where she struts around hoping to get discovered as the next big Musical Ride Trading Card extravaganza for all the children in North America, however, she knows her real purpose of serving the Canadian people and the beautiful Canadian country play a much more important role in her overall being. Protecting people and property is what she excels at. After all, Rosalina chuckles at how many times she played Bernard’s hero, saving him from unseen trouble. Always calm and sturdy in a riot with people throwing bottles and screaming at her, she always keeps her head. She also knew that no living person could outrun her when the chase was on. Rosalina patrols the streets with her partner Bernard as they protect and serve with clarity and professionalism for all!
