Horse Parades

Date: July 18 - July 21, 2019
The first horse parade made its way down Main Street Salinas in 1911. It was led by James R. Hebbron and consisted of a sixteen piece band and about 100 horses ridden by local ranchers. In 1938 the parade showcased a record 1,000 horses! Today, the parade consists of mounted Sheriff’s Posse, competitors, various riding groups, color guards, drill teams, Junior & Senior riders and Charro and Charra riding groups. The horse parade is a tradition that you definitely want to experience. Entries are taken each year for participants from near and far.

The parade will travel to the Rodeo Grounds on Thursday and Friday from East Alisal Street. The Saturday and Sunday traditional horse parades still travel from Old Town Salinas to the Rodeo Grounds.

Survey Info & Results

The California Rodeo Salinas is always interested in getting feedback from our participants. In March of 2018 printed surveys were sent to the participants of our annual horse parade. Below you will find a document that summarizes the results. We appreciate that so many participants took the time to fill out and return the surveys so we know if we are doing a good job and where we may need to improve. We look forward to a great Big Week coming up very soon!
