Yesterday, Poplar Hall of historic Chesapeake City, Maryland held their second annual Christmas Parade of Horses in conjunction with their popular Holiday Market. Pony Clubs, hunt clubs, mounted police units, equine rescues, and local stables full of all sorts of horses and riding disciplines came together to deliver some holiday cheer to spectators packing the sidewalks.

And yes, that is Phillip Dutton riding alongside Santa Claus! Phillip was named this year’s honorary parade marshal and the parade was dedicated in honor of the late Rob Bowersox of Major League Eventing.
