Equestrians participating in the Rose Parade showcase a variety of breeds, as well as unique tack and costumes. All riders must have previous parade riding experience.

In addition to riding in the five and a half mile-long Rose Parade route on Jan. 2, these equestrian groups are invited to take part in Equestfest presented by Wells Fargo, which will take place Dec. 30 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. During Equestfest, groups perform trick riding, drills, dancing and roping skills, and attendees can walk through the stables and speak with the riders.
