Of course, we know the star of a presidential inauguration is the president. Still, we can’t help but focus on all the amazing horses who participate in the Inaugural Parade. Did you know that they come from all over the country and are specially selected to participate? Some are even therapy horses for soldiers in their daily lives.

No matter what your political affiliation, these gorgeous equines marching up Pennsylvania Avenue to ring in a new presidential term are quite a sight to behold.

This year, the ASPCA will be on hand to help. At the 57th Inauguration on Monday, these special horses will have the benefit of ASPCA experts stationed along the parade route in case any animal emergency should occur. 

We’re participating at the request of the D.C. Department of Health, and we couldn’t be more honored to help out.

Heading to the Inauguration Parade, too? We’ll see you there!
