is because I think it is the most horsey of all the parades out there. While I am consistently disappointed with how little TV coverage the horse units get during the actual parade this year I had two pleasant surprises. The first was the discovery of something called Equestfest. RFDtv had live coverage of demos from all of the equine unites who rode in the parade! It was amazing to see some of these drill teams in action. In fact, it made me want to ride on a drill team so bad. I love costumes, chaos, music and having fun so I think I would be a great drill team member…minus the fact that I don’t have a horse to ride at the moment (details details). It is a total dream of mine to ride a horse in a parade one day. I know, I am such a dork!
Surprise number two came in a much larger scale…
How cool is that float?!?!?! I think it is beautiful. It is hard to believe that it is made with all natural decorations. I know the picture is not great, but let me tell you it looked stunning on TV!
Happy 2011 everyone!
