Pierce College hosted its annual Parade of Breeds event in the Equestrian Center Oct. 12 for a crowd of spectators who watched 40 different breeds of horses being exhibited in the arena.

The event, which is organized by Assistant Professor of Horse Science Patricia Warner, is hosted every October.

“We have every breed of horse that you could possibly imagine,” said history major Julie Crisler.

The horses were paraded along the arena and audience members tried to identify each horse by their breed.

“It’s a great way of seeing all these unusual horses that you don’t usually get a chance to,” said Crisler.

Warner organized the Parade of Breeds to give her students a hands-on experience identifying all the different types of horses.

“A couple of years ago, when I started teaching full-time at Pierce, I had a class called horse production, and some of the students were asking about breeds of horses,” said Warner. “They didn’t understand what they looked like.”

She explained that the students were only able to look at them in the book.

“So I came up with this idea where you can see any breed of horse live and face-to-face,” said Warner.
