Montana is Marlboro Country…ranches, cattle, horses, cowboys and Indians. We like to keep it casual and laid back. Even our Governor Schweitzer sports jeans, cowboy boots, and a string tie.
Now in the true spirit of Montana, Governor Schweitzer and the state’s congressional delegation plan to ride horseback in the inaugural parade for president elect Obama. Twenty Crow Indians will also be riding horseback in the parade with another 20 riding on a float.
“As someone who was raised on the back of a horse, it will be an honor to saddle up to represent our great state of Montana in the inaugural parade,” said Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Montana.
Inauguration Day is January 20th.
