American Quarter Horses March in London Parade
For the first time, American Quarter Horses were included in the 2015 All the Queen’s Horses parade on New Year’s Day in London. The 75-horse parade included 12 American Quarter Horses, and one rider carrying the AQHA flag.
“What an amazing experience the American Quarter Horse UK Team had!” said Lindsay Robinson of the United Kingdom, one of the event’s organizers who rode LJ Classic Luke, a 2000 bay gelding by Classic Impulse and out of CW Quintessence by Crimson War.
“We loved it and the horses loved it, too! Thank you so much to all the London New Year’s Day Parade organizers, specifically Caroline Marsh and her team from All the Queen’s Horses, and also to AQHA and AQHA UK who supported us in this adventure. You have given us memories that we will all cherish forever! It was everything we expected and much, much more. The chance to ride through the streets of London by iconic landmarks and meet some of the hundreds of thousands of spectators was something that I know we will always remember.”
