Blazers Shine in Hometown Independence Day Parade
American Blazer Horses had the privilege last summer of being in a 4th of July parade in Yellow Pine, Idaho. If you don’t play the harmonica, you probably have no idea where this town is located! It is two hours northeast of Cascade, Idaho, tucked away in the mountains.
The reason why this was such an exciting event is because it was the very first time horses have ever been in this parade. We had a great time decorating our horses—and ourselves—in red, white and blue. The red and blue glitter sparkled in the sunlight, complementing our cowboy and Uncle Sam hats. The crowd roared and the children smiled as we scattered candy along the parade route. It was a huge success and a privilege to be a part of this momentous occasion. We are looking forward to doing it again next year with even more Blazers.
Our Blazers were involved and on display in the All Horse Snake River Stampede Parade as well. We had 11 riders beautifully decked out with their horses in black and gold. One rider ponied his 2-year-old Blazer. Our youngest rider was 4-year-old Porter Bocox riding Minnie Mouse all on his own along the 2 mile parade route. We received 2nd place in the Family Division and received a $100 check and a trophy. Looking forward to the 2015 season! If you want to learn more about American Blazer Horses visit blazerhorse.com.
