Riderless Horse Flowers

Originally a military ceremony dating back to the days of when the cavalry relied on equestrian transportation instead of motor vehicles, the ceremony of the rider less horse has come to symbolize the end of a unique relationship between the horse and its rider.

A special bond between horse and rider exists that can never be replaced by modern day mechanical vehicles. Each learned the other’s cues, body movements, dispositions and numerous other unspoken signals and when that bond is broken, the horse must learn to adjust to the life minus its familiar partner.

The ceremony today not only immortalizes this philosophy, but also honors the many members of Arizona Gay Rodeo Association and all IGRA sanctioned Rodeo Associations members who have been taken from us well before their time.

This sponsorship if for the flowers placed on the riderless horse.
