Tomorrow morning, Saving America’s Mustangs and the plight of our wild horses will be getting national attention as millions of viewers watch their float in the Tournament of Roses Parade, in Pasadena, Calif.
The float, Mustang Monument, is in honor of Madeleine Pickens’ proposed plan to save thousands of mustangs by creating a sanctuary in the west, which will provide horses with their natural habitat, in addition to giving people the opportunity to come see them and learn about our heritage.
From Madeleine Pickens:
This is such great exposure for the Wild Ones!! Please make a point to tune into the Rose Parade on January 1st and give our mustangs the attention they deserve!! This is also a great opportunity to see real, GREAT AMERICAN MUSTANGS live!!! Six of our very own mustangs will be walking proudly in the 5.5 mile parade, celebrating the Rose Bowl and our American heritage! One million parade goers will be lining the streets to get a glimpse at these beautiful, floral floats. We would love to have you cheer us on and wave to you as we pass by.
Also accompanying our float and equestrian unit we will be honoring many great Americans including: wounded veterans, including several from Patriot Paws, as well as our 4 legged heroes from the Military War Dogs Association, and several Native American tribes. Not to mention, some of our respected Saving America’s Mustangs Advisory Board Members and a HUGE fireworks display!!
