A friend and I are riding our horses in a local christmas parade next month (small city parade..not rural)..and the parade organizer said we need to have someone tag along with us during the parade and clean up after the horses..... Great, no big deal..so I thought.
I had no idea it would be this hard to find someone to do it! Nobody wants to .. not that I can blame them really lol.. but seriously.. I've put up ads looking for help- offering to pay for the 2 hours of work, community service hours for students etc etc... and not one email in return. It's frustrating! I even contacted a couple dog poop & scoop services and inquired if I could pay them to do it.... I mean, horse poo is so much more pleasant than dog poo!
Anyone rode in a parade before.. What did you do for the clean up part of it?
I only have a about 2 1/2 weeks left to find someone, and I feel like they will deny us if riding in it if we don't supply a "scooper". We would have nooo problem doing it ourselves if it were at all possible.. but how the heck would we manage riding and dismounting to clean up..
