Since the very beginning, horses have been part of the Rose Parade, with equines pulling flower decorated carriages on New Year’s Day 1890. Even with the advent of motorized vehicles in the parade, equestrian units have remained an integral component each year, highlighting a wide variety of breeds including graceful Andalusians, striking Percherons, and elegant Saddlebreds. Skilled riders, eye-catching costumes and hand-crafted tack add to the appeal year after year.
