PASADENA, Calif. (September 21, 2022) – The Pasadena Tournament of Roses® is proud to announce 16 outstanding equestrian groups to ride in the 134th Rose Parade® presented by Honda, themed “Turning the Corner.”

From the beginning, the Equestrian units have played an integral part in the Rose Parade. Equestrians participating will showcase a variety of horse breeds that entertain and highlight their majesty and poise. Each unit offers a variety of exceptional skills as well as unique costumes. In addition to riding in the five-and-a-half mile Rose Parade route on Monday, January 2, 2023, these equestrian groups are invited to take part in Equestfest on Friday, December 30, 2022, at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. During Equestfest, groups perform their best tricks, drills, dancing and roping skills, and attendees can walk through the stables and meet and greet with the riders and horses.
