The 'All the Queen's Horses' section at the London New Year's Day Parade proved to be a popular part of this year's event.
The section took 11 months of planning by the riders, helpers and organisers. For two miles through some of the most famous streets of London, the crowds were treated to a spectacle of colour and entertainment courtesy of 'All The Queen's Horses' and their costumes.
The theme this year was the ‘Circus & The Showman’ and this certainly offered plenty of inspiration for the 60 horses and equestrians who took part.
From colourful clowns, performing acrobats on horseback to lion and elephant-inspired costumes, the performers didn't disappoint.
Organiser and ‘All The Queen's Horses’ founder Caroline Marsh, said: "This year's event was our best yet. The horses, riders and helpers never cease to amaze me with their enthusiasm, support and creativity when it comes to their costumes.
"Months of hard work is over in a matter of hours, but the buzz we all get from being involved is so strong that as soon as we head back to base camp after the parade, we are already talking about next year!"
