    Order a few yards of tassel fringe and don't even use the breastplate, just re-enforce the fringe with some rope and add snaps on the end to clip to your saddle.

    There's some good ideas on here, and on the customer referral page too.

    This might sound silly, but what are rythym beads? Is it just a circlet of beads the horse wears n the neck or does it surve a modern/historical purpose?

    Mine have bells on them. From what I have heard, the bells help to create a steady rhythmic sound that is very calming to the horse. IE: carriage horses have bells on their harnesses for that reason.
    Plus, mine are also made of healing crystals.

    Medieval Horse Barding and Caparisons - Custom and Ready-Made
    I love looking for costumes for my horse, I think some of this barding goes of the reins, like you thread the reins through, so you might be able to do the same for the breastplate.

    Next year I think I'm dressing Lucky up as a Unicorn and me as a fairy (not a very original idea, but still cute I think!) http://www.gypsyroses.org/OhMyUni.html I think the horn is so sweet, and, cos it's rubber, you can just thread a needle through it to attatch it to a halter / bridle! Eek can't wait for Hallowe'en!
