Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament and the Scripps Miramar Saddlebreds have brought stunning pageantry to the Rose Parade for nearly three decades each. While Medieval Times’ regalia and trappings are authentic to the periods, Scripps Miramar riders wear brilliantly colored and fanciful costumes.
Adding to the pageantry was first-time entry Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry, outfitted in traditional Norwegian bunader. To parade viewers accustomed to the mix of Quarter Horses, Andalusians and Appaloosas that make up a good portion of parade horses, the Norwegian Fjord Horse is an unusual sight.
