Some competitiors like a curtain between stalls to discourage a neighboring horse from aggravating your or vice versa. Your horse's name, maybe age and your name is nice on a plaque to hang off the front of the stall. Some even include a few pics. You might find yourself pretty busy and you do need to spend most of your time with your horse. You're all that's familiar there. Offering rides isn't a good idea as your horse is stressed from all that's going on and he'd rather be home.

@ Acco: you can have contests, but at my fair we usually don't. It;s sad how people decorate their stalls in my town.. They put a poster up with five things on it and then I never see them around their horse for the rest of fair. Last year I was in the barn 24/7. I was practically living in my barn, and I saw two people the whole time.

But this year I actually will be living at the barn because we are camping there this year and Brisco hasn't been stalled for at least 7 years - but I put him in one a few days ago fro about 15 minutes while the other horses were out riding and he did fine. I didn't hear anything come from his stall and He didn't move around much, just watching to make sure he wasn't going to get left there! Haha!

Thank you everyone for the ideas!

I think it depends on the fair and 4H group- in my area we have actual drapes and curtains embroidered with the 4H group name and hung over each of the horses stalls and the tack stall. The only decoration we were allowed was a poster introducing our horse.

As long as the streamers are attached everywhere and not going to blow and spook any horses they would look good.
