PASADENA, Calif. (August 26, 2021) – The Pasadena Tournament of Roses® is proud to announce 18 outstanding equestrian groups to ride in the 133rd Rose Parade® presented by Honda, themed “Dream. Believe. Achieve.”

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 Saturday, January 1, these equestrian groups are invited to take part in Equestfest on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, 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.

Turning the corner of Orange Grove Blvd. and down Colorado Blvd. make a lasting impression. The fantastic lineup of equestrian units will complement the floats and bands that will journey down the 5 1/2-mile route during the 2022 Rose Parade presented by Honda.
