We wish the field were bigger so we could watch this thing really get rolling!
I never participated in marching band in high school, though I did run poorly on the cross-country team which practiced at the same time so we constantly had a soundtrack to listen to. I’ll admit freely that our high school marching band put in way more hours of practice than I did in cross-country and worked out in the sweltering heat of late summer just the other fall sports teams. Maybe that’s why I still have a respect for the well-oiled machine that is a good marching band, and why I get such a kick out of this video.
Watch the Purdue University band bring this horse and stagecoach to life in their wild west-themed show:
The Purdue "All-American" Marching Band created one of the greatest picture formations we have ever seen. This horse and carriage is AMAZING! Don't miss their wild west show. Watch it all here: https://www.collegemarching.com/content/purdue-takes-us-to-the-wild-west🎥 by Purdue Band Fan

If you found this impressive, check out the full show below, featuring famous themes from well-known westerns, a little “Devil Went Down to Georgia” breakdown, flaming batons (!!) and of course, the entire band spelling out “happy trails” at the end.
