I need help with a horse renaissance costume!

I have a horse fun show coming up... The theme is renaissance, I dont know how/what to do for a costume for the horse! I kinda like this costume

but I dont know how I would make it... I dont have a horse sheet or blanket and nor do I wish to buy one. Any cheap easy ways to make it?
PLEASE HELP!!! If you have any other ideas other than the picture above ^ please tell me! I'm open to lots of ideas!

Suitability has a pattern for horse barding. (google suitability horse patterns). I sewed a costume just like that for my daughter's horse two years ago. It was easy (lots of straight lines) and I used "duck cloth". (heavy canvas fabric). It looked great (if I do say so myself).

If I can, I'll post pics later.

I wish I had some more pictures from the renaissance fairs when I was in southern France! They had some really neat costumes. Good luck!

I like that its really simple but i would have to shorten the blanket thing on the horse because we'd have to be able to canter and jump in the costume...

This was my costume:





Handmade by my sister's mother inlaw. She cut out a shape from a horse blanket I had and sewed his costume, and also sewed my cape. There were tassles at the bottom of his costume.

You can get a cheap cooler and paste or pin on a design or something.
