After from the floral decorated floats, every year the Rose Parade also showcases equestrian units which showcase a variety of breeds as well as impressive and unique tack and costumes.
Since the very beginning, horses have been part of the Rose Parade, with equines pulling flower decorated carriages on New Year’s Day in 1890.
Even with the advent of motorized vehicles in the parade, equestrian units have remained an integral component of the parade each and every year.
For this year’s Rose Parade i.e, the 129th Rose Parade, 20 outstanding equestrian units have been selected.
