The California Highway Patrol’s Mounted Patrol Unit marched with pride along the 2017 Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade route – one of 25 equestrian teams that were selected out of hundreds of applicants to take part in the Rose Parade. On Wednesday, December 28, the six CHP riders and their horses made the journey from Sacramento to Pasadena, by truck and trailer, to get settled before marching along the route down Colorado Blvd. and be part of the more than 100-year-old Rose Parade tradition. Authorities, saying they have learned valuable lessons from the March terrorist attack in Brussels, ramped up security for the 128th annual Rose Parade with barricades, security checkpoints and other measures. Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez told reporters Wednesday that some of those measures included water-filled barriers designed to stop would-be terrorists from crashing cars into crowded areas. https://goo.gl/bMGdi4.
