"Pinking" out a horse

There is a trail ride this Sunday at the KY Horse Park that is being held by a breast cancer awareness organization. There are going to be prizes for the most pinked out horse and rider. I am going to be riding a nearly all-white horse (pictured below). HELP, I NEED IDEAS!!!

Here's the tack I have to work with -
A light pink saddle pad (might be borrowing a hot pink one)
Pink sport boots (front)
... that's it. HELP!

I'm thinking about getting that temporary hair dye or braiding a pink ribbon in the tail. Any ideas are appreciated - Get as whacky as you'd like!

Twinkle ultra fine horse glitter gel, hoof polish, shampoo, eyes and muzzle oil, gold dust spray, and stencil kit

Pink hoof stuff, ribbon on each butt, and sparkles in the mane and tail.

I know my local tack store carries it.

Or you could get some pink sparkles from a craft store.

When ever my friends and I do stuff like this we just do a dollar store run. You'll get a lot of really cool looking stuff for cheap.

Too much!

But a pink feather boa could be alright....

If it was me, I'd be picking up some temporary hair dye, making a ribbon stencil and painting pink ribbons all over the horse. Most drug stores carry this temporary hair color that comes in a spray can and washes out easily with shampoo (might need a few shampoo/rinse cycles).

If you want to be extra animal safe, use pink kool-aid as dye... it just won't come out as easily. But the temporary hair stain should be safe. When it doubt, get a vegetable-based/vegan dye.

You have a white horse totally use it to your advantage! Pink everywhere!! Color him pink. Vet wrap ribbons etc!

Elmers glue, stencils, and craft store glitter go a long way....
