Ride - fanfare
The Belgian composer Kevin Houben wrote the composition “Ride” especially for the fanfare orchestra “Bereden Wapens” of the Dutch army.
The rationale for the composition “Ride" is the signal “Forward”.
The signal “Forward” is used in military memorial ceremonies to close a sad or dark period,
and to return to continue with renewed vigor. “Ride” is also a command for horses to move
forward; very appropriate, since the orchestra “Bereden Wapens”, belonging to the regiment
of Huzaren van Boreel, is part of the Cavalry.
