Costume Contest Ideas!!
I need some help with ideas for a costume contest at a horse show I am going to in a month.
I just looked at the time schedule, and realized that approx. 1/2 hour after costume contest, is my western pleasure class :S

I need a costume that doesn't involve spray paint or anything that won't come off right away.
Preferably something made of material or something to put on my horse.

I want something fun and creative, so give me your ideas :D

You a bee, horse a flower, You a cat horse a dog, You a knight, horse a dragon, you a cow with a rope around you tied to the saddle horn, horse a "working cow horse" You a seaworld trainer, horse an orca, you a mahout, horse an elephant.

these arn't exactly realyl costumy but we made these for a christmas parade that we never did get to ride in! you could always dress up as a knight or a princess = )

Thanks for the ideas!
I was thinking maybe I could be a bumbleebee, and dress my horse with a sheet covered in flowers, and in her mane and stuff.

Or, I could be jesse from Toy Story, and my horse could be bullseye :)

Not sure though :)

My favorite was dressing my old QH up as a hula dancer. Flowers in his hair, I made reins out of fake flowers and a grass skirt out of a grass-green colored sheet that I cut into strips and safety pinned it to a bareback pad and to top it all off...a coconut bikini top as a breast collar. I wore a matching grass skirt, bikini top (i was was and flowers in my hair. We won our class and it was super cute

^^ thats a really cool idea, but we have to have full tack if riding, and I am kinda uncomfortable in a bikini :P haha

We dressed up my guy as Fozzy Bear (red foam nose and hat) and my daughter was Miss Piggy (pink dress and hat.....) Was cute and very easy!
