LONDON NEW YEAR'S DAY PARADE- ALL THE QUEENS HORSES. BEN HUR

Here are some photos of our Fab Four and their Roman minders at the NYDP. Don't they look just splendid.
They really excelled themselves despite the weather. The costumes would have done justice to the actual movie Ben Hur. They enthralled the spectators who lined the route from start to finish.

Peter & Ellie WIlliams, Stacey Jury and Jenny Trotman looked every inch legionaries of the Roman Army. The legionaries were separated into centuries – units made up of 80 soldiers plus 20 men who remained in the camp to cook and do other chores. This is where our word 'century' derives from. Roman soldiers could march 20 miles (30 km) a day wearing armour and equipment. Our Fjord Unit's foot soldiers must have felt they had done similar mileage by the end of the day. So hers to all our humans & Fjord Horses.

RIDERS SET TO TAKE LONDON BY STORM ON NEW YEAR'S DAY

A cavalcade of horses and riders in fancy dress will take the capital by storm on New Year’s Day as All The Queen’s Horses returns to London.
Along with jugglers, cheerleaders, acrobats, clowns and marching bands, 64 riders and horses will take to the streets with their take on famous films and television programmes.
This year’s theme is “lights, camera action”, in keeping with the parade’s tradition of keeping to a set style.
Previous years have celebrated the “swinging 60s”, “London moving” and, in 2016, “magic and fantasy”
The riders taking part, who were invited for selection from across the UK, with some travelling from Belgium for the occasion, range from six-year-old Bluebell, on her friend’s Shetland and dressed as a Dalmatian, to a man in his 70s.
“They are unpaid volunteers unified in their passion for horses and bringing equestrianism to the capital!” said a spokesman for the event.
Organiser Caroline Marsh is leading the horse parade dressed as Wonder Woman.
She will be riding Sam, a 16.2hh chestnut hunter belonging to her friend Barbara Paige.
The horse will be making his third and last parade appearance.
“We’ve got a fantastic theme once again this year,” said Ms Marsh.
“The costumes are going to wow the crowds. It’s such a special part of the parade and we all love bringing equestrianism to the capital to this unique annual event.”
The equestrian element of the parade starts off 11.45am at Piccadilly Circus and finishes at Parliament, with the return route via Horse Guards, The Mall and Buckingham Palace.

THINGS ARE HOTTING UP NOW AND WORK TOWARDS THE DAY IS IN FULL SWING.
