Don’t you just love parades? I do…especially lately when I’ve been getting to ride my horse in them! I remember before I had a horse of my own, I loved going to the parades to see just that…all the horses. It was great!
When we were riding in the 4th of July parade this year, one spectator commented, “This is my favorite part of the parade.” One of the other riders replied jokingly, “What? The end?” She exclaimed, “No! No! Getting to see all the beautiful horses.” And that made the hours of prepping worth it!
Friday night was my town’s “A Candy Cane Christmas” parade. Riding in a night parade can be a little more nerve-wracking. There are different shadows and things look a little strange for the horses. This was our first nighttime parade, but it was still a lot of fun!
Myself and my significant other before the parade.

We had an awesome time!!
