Question Thoughts on Halloween Horseback Riding?

Hey everyone!
So I was wondering...what are your thoughts on going Trick-Or-Treating with horses?
It sounds fun. You can dress up yourself and your horse and hit the road for some candy!
But it also sounds dangerous. Little kids running around in crazy outfits out in the dark..something's gotta spook your horse if he/she isn't completley bombproof.
I was considering taking my paint. He is currently away in professional training to work out his little kinks. I was thinking I could be an indian and Sailor could be my indian pony.
His previous owner has taken him to several playdays and even a parade. If I felt he wouldn't be safe enough to ride, I could always lead him.
However, It's probably smarter to wait until next year. I haven't owned him long and Sailor probably isn't quite up to Level: Halloween yet.

So what are your experiences/thoughts on horses & Halloween?

Your going to trick or treat on horseback? Do you plan on riding up into peoples yards and front doors to get candy?

The idea is fun, but, its alot of work and there too many dangers

My horse-owning friends live on a country road where most people have horses. I was thinking about going there(my friends claim that there are barely any people who go trick-or-treating in their neighborhood).
However, I understand that there are plently of dangers and even the sweetest horse could injure someone. I do not want to put my horse or any halloween kids in danger so I probably will not end up going through with that idea anyway.
As for if my horse leaves a 'gift' on someone's property? One of my friends could be a scarecrow or a devil and hold a pitchfork! Problem solved
