Or www.tasselnfringe.com/tassel_fringe.htm
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.

I did something similar years ago. I will see if I can track down a picture. I sewed the whole costume tho and I was a knight. Make sure that youre horse tolerates that extra gear in odd places

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!
