My daughter went back and forth between Mantracker from Science Channel and a rodeo queen. She settled on rodeo queen.

Some ideas some of the other girls have been tossing around...
for a Paint horse, dressing the rider up like an artist, and a drop cloth for a blanket over the saddle pad.

Using a red and white blanket and dressing the rider up as a chef...draping "spaghetti" over the mane.

First date, with a bow tie and formal(ish) gown for the girl.

A hippy, especially if you have a horse with an incredible mane that you could braid up.

You can't really tell from the photo but that's a star hanging from her "horn" and she had a wreath around her neck with actual battery-operated christmas lights lol...poor pony!

I love the christmas tree idea! very cute!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

There are loads of possibilties! You could be an alien/astronaut on a spacey horse, A fairy on her "unicorn", a bride on her flower pony!, A sweetie queen with necklaces made of sweets and jellybeans and bright colours, or even a disney character! have a play around with those ideas, also have a look on google or other image sites for ideas :)

I'd much rather talk to my horse, he never answers back, but he always listens to what i have to say.
