The Golden Palomino horse has historically been synonymous with popular parades of the day. Palominos are a favorite for Shriner Horse Patrols and Sheriff Posse groups. These units were always an expected crowd pleaser at local, state and national parades such as The Rose Bowl Parade, held in Pasadena, CA.

Most units used silver parade saddles that were a mainstay for cowboy celebrities of the time. Accordingly, Palomino horse shows offered Parade Classes, as well as, a Fiesta Class, featuring these kinds of parade horses. Pictured below is an example of a Parade horse with a silver Parade saddle. Also, pictured is the Tournament of Roses Parade, Pasadena, CA.

The Palomino Horse still maintains his presence in major parades at the Rose Bowl among others. On November 6, 2016, the Palomino Horse added another parade to his list as the Grand Marshal of the 2016 Will Rogers Days Parade in Claremore, OK, commemorating Will Rogers, his contributions to the state of Oklahoma (and the nation) and to remember his Cherokee spirit, and his love of "Comanche", his Palomino horse" still lives strong in the hearts of people not only in Oklahoma, but around the country.
