The 2008 Rose Bowl Parade Horses in Action

100_1175 
One of the yearly events  to which I look forward is the Rose Bowl Parade. I am fascinated the creativity of the gorgeous floats which are decorated with flowers and flower petals.  The amount of work that goes into their design must be truly incredible

This year however, I was glued to my high definition big screen TV once I caught a glimpse of the horses. Grabbing my video camera, I just had to capture segments of their outstanding performances. 

As each group of horses crossed my screen, my heart raced with excitement as I watched the Andalusians, Paso Finos,Bashkirs, Palominos, Miniature Horses, Clydesdales and other breeds too numerous to list. Our United States Olympic team riding their dressage and Grand Prix jumpers were beautifully featured.

I even got to wonder if Raven, my friend Kim's horse, pictured above, gave some thought to participating in this delightful event, dressed up in this fancy attire.

As Horses are one of my deepest passions, I created this video of the horses in the 2008 Rose Bowl Parade. It is to honor the tremendous number of generous people who contribute tirelessly from their hearts, as they work miracles to save the "unwanted" horses in our country.  They give generously toward the welfare of all horses and have become their voice. Our goal is to end the cruel and unnecessary slaughter of these magnificent animals, forever.

Thanks so very much for doing that video. I don't know if it was the channel I was watching but we didn't see most of the horse entries. It seemed like there would be a commercial when they were about to appear. thank you for all the beautiful horses this morning. It made my day.

What a great video.I have been to this wonderful parade and have seen behind the scenes. It is truly amazing. The horses are so beautiful, and all decked out in such beautiful attire. There are so many distractions, but they seem to handle it very well.

Did you see all of the people smiling and waving?...and the get ups on some of the horses were splendid.

I just love this...the best ever!

You brought their contributions to life, and this video shows how simply wonderful they are. Horses fill up the empty spots in our souls and in our lives!

BRAVA!
