That's difficult o_O April Fools is all about playing pranks and stuff, how do you dress your horse up like a prank? I suppose you could change his color. Oo! I know! Make him "human clothes" and then you dress up in a kids horse costume!

The problem is april fools isn't really a theme lo. You play pranks on april fools, people don't usually dress up. I still think you could pull off the switched rider/horse without spending too much... Go to the fabric store to the scraps area (where they sell everything super cheap) and find yourself about a yards length of material, then craft a tie you could put around your horses neck. Go to the used clothing store and find some kind of cute hat, cut ear holes and attack some string to tether it (use a quick release knot) to the top of the headstall and slip his ears through so it doesn't accidently come off. And I'm sure yo could find a horse mask somewhere, or you could make one out of paper mache. Just use a cardboard base to get the right shape.

What about being a clown? I mean they play jokes and stuff you could go with a little circus like thing. You being the clown and her being the elephant or circus horse.
Also you could dress up like you have broken limbs, you wear a neck brace and put some make up on the look like you have bruises. For your horse wrap his leg up with gauze and stick some band aids on her.
