local celebs

A group of local women riding Clydesdale horses are the only Canadians invited to participate in the upcoming Rose Parade.

The Canadian Clyde Ride - eight performance riders and two flag carriers - bill themselves as the world's first draft horse musical ride. I caught one of their maneuvers at the 2003 Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver.

Clydesdales can weigh as much as 2,400 lbs. and have shoes the size of dinner plates. More photos here.
