Smile SWEET gymkhana ideas; looking for pink & lime green

I've been riding my dressage thoroughbred mare Molly Western recently and she's taken to it with amazing finesse. I fooled around on her this weekend doing some barrel racing with water buckets and she was great! I've decided to do gymkhana next year with her at fair instead of my Paso gelding, and my friend and I are psyched for her outfit. I made this up quickly for what she's going to look like....




I'm asking for her "outfit" for Christmas and trying to find the best deals on this stuff, so if anyone has any of the following for sale please let me know!:
  • Lime green and hot pink polo wraps, we need two of each color
  • green nylon gaming bridle, reins, curb chain and breastcollar
  • saddle blanket/pad; lime green and pink or plain pink (must be hot pink)
  • sparkly silver bell boots
  • if you know of anywhere that sells silver, green, pink horse body paint please let me know! Most of the gamers around here write on their horse's bums with horse paint
  • if you know of anywhere that sells pink and green braiding bands (we're going to band her mane) let me know!
  • Also looking for barrels and cones to practice with
Thanks!

You can buy colorful hair bands(the little rubber ones) at most places that sell hair care products, you could check Walmart, or Target...Ect.

Thanks, I'll look into that. Anyone know where I can find polo wraps in pairs rather than 4's? I really like the brightness of THESE (CLICK) but they only sell them in sets of four.

Those are my new saddleseat colors! I love being in an English discipline that lets me dress in gaudy colors!

They have sleazy-like boots.. Horse Leg Wraps

Okay, my 2 best friends are taking care of the saddle blanket and polo gifts for Christmas. They've bought the green wraps, have placed bids on these awesome pink ones with stars, and have placed a bid on this GORGEOUS saddle blanket, it's a Mayatex with gorgeous rhinestones set by hand, $50 (pic attached). I also am asking for a green nylon bridle/rein/breastcollar set for christmas from my mom for $45 (pic attached). Now I just need the braiding bands, silver bell boots, and horse paint! Ideas on where to get these? Our local tack shop sells bell boots in a ton of colors, but everything they have is overpriced since the closest tack shop from them is a good 45 minutes away.

Woah, you are really going all out on this, aren't ya? :) My horses "barrel racing" color is mostly leather with a little royal blue. Anyway, the tack set you got looks like the first one I got only in purple. I have an Appendix Quarter horse, and the reins were wayyyyy too short on him, even adjusted to longest length, so I would look into getting some different reins. If you have facebook, you can type in Barrel Racing Tack Swap, and they have tons of cool things there for sale, new or used. Gypsy Tails, they are things you can insert to your horses mane or tail to add a little color!

I see horse paint at my local tack shop but I don't know what it's called or anything.

I didn't think of that. How long of reins would you reccomend?

I would just get the Adjustable barrel reins. They come in a ton of colors and are really adjustable. My friend likes the mustang brand. They are about 17 bucks with shipping. Just go to ebay and type in adjustable barrel reins.

My friend has that same bridle/breastcollar set. Loves hers. Its actually not a badly constructed set either...pretty heavy duty.

Bell boot wise, you would be much better off financially if you bought a combo boot. A good pair of bell boots, no matter where you buy them, is going to run you atleast $25 unless you wanna deal with rubber pull ons. Combo boots are great for speed events. You would have to go green or pink in front though. They only come in pairs.
