Christmas Parade

I finally got to ride in the Christmas Parade.  I was going to  last year until it snowed and turned bitter cold. 
 The weather was perfect this year.
 Hank the Wonder Horse tolerated all of the decorations.  I didn't degrade him by putting on antlers.
 Just some bows a rump rug and jingle bells for his front legs.  V and J were good enough to ride with me.
 V was back on her old mount Jessica.  Her mane braided up nicely with the ribbons.
 I was told that 27 horses turned out for the parade.
 Jessica did great although I think she would have preferred going a lot further and faster.
 J rode his dad's horse Lady.  She hadn't been ridden in 6 months but did fine.  It took me 20 minutes to get that tail combed out.  Looks like J could use a new saddle pad.
After a lot of hurry up and wait we finished the route in Christmas spirit.  Hank now has Christmas Parade to add to his resume (and Jessica and Lady).   Thank you E for taking the pictures.

I always wanted to ride in a parade, not sure Id pick Christmas, especially around here, but maybe the rodeo all horse parade next year.

You all look good out thier and I like the decorations, not too over the top.

Looks like a lot of fun! Seems like parades are always during weather that's unseasonably warm or cold, so I'm glad you lucked out this year :)
