Horses have been a part of the Rose Parade for 125 years
Hard to believe a New Year is about to begin. As a child, I loved watching the Rose Bowl parade and remember there always being wonderful horses taking part. This year will be no exception. ~ HfH

Motorized floats became a part of the parade in 1901, but they were moved to the rear of the parade so as not to scare the horses.
By 1920, motorized floats powered by electric motors and gas engines had taken the parade over completely. Horses were still allowed, but they weren’t hauling the floats anymore.
