Western Parade Horse

The Palomino horse is by far the most sought after "yellow" parade entry and has historically been the centerpiece in popular parades. Palominos are always an expected crowd pleaser at national parades such as The Rose Bowl Parade, held in Pasadena, CA. From the silver and gold adorned saddles by talented saddlemakers to how Palomino leaders still celebrate Parade Horse competition at weekend horse shows, we've got the scoop!
  • The Golden Palomino horse has historically been synonymous with popular parades of the day. Palominos are always an expected crowd pleaser at local, state and national parades such as The Rose Bowl Parade, held in Pasadena, CA.
  • Thank you to the Curtis and Elizabeth Corson family of New Jersey for donating an original (circa early 1950s) Ted Flowers Silver Parade Saddle to the Heritage Foundation. This saddle is proudly on display now as you come into the museum. It is a beautiful piece of work and represents such an important time in the history of the Palomino horse.
