2017 Rose Parade-Spirit of the West Riders

The 2017 Tornament of Roses Parade was held this year on January 2nd and it was a beautiful day for a parade!  Christy rode again this year making it her 12th ride down Colorado Boulevard with the Spirit of the West Riders.  The group is famous for bringing the old west alive with authentic and reproduction wardrobe, saddles and tack.  Here is a photo tour of the amazing experience.
