WCF News: The London Harness Horse Parade

1st April 2013

The London Harness Horse Parade


The London Harness Horse Parade as it is known today takes place annually on Easter Monday at The South of England Centre, Sussex.


Steeped in tradition, the parade offers onlookers a glimpse into a world gone by and, for those participating, a chance to show off their best turnouts as well as meet up with friends and fellow enthusiasts.

 

The Parade in its present form is actually an amalgam of two traditional parades - the London Cart Horse Parade, which was founded in 1885, and the London Van Horse Parade, which was founded in 1904.

 

The Master was invited to attend this spectacular event, and had an excellent day.
