"Pinking" out a horse
1 Attachment(s)
There is a trail ride this Sunday at the KY Horse Park that is being held by a breast cancer awareness organization. There are going to be prizes for the most pinked out horse and rider. I am going to be riding a nearly all-white horse (pictured below). HELP, I NEED IDEAS!!!

Here's the tack I have to work with -
A light pink saddle pad (might be borrowing a hot pink one)
Pink sport boots (front)
... that's it. HELP!

I'm thinking about getting that temporary hair dye or braiding a pink ribbon in the tail. Any ideas are appreciated - Get as whacky as you'd like!

I know my local tack store carries it.

Or you could get some pink sparkles from a craft store.

When ever my friends and I do stuff like this we just do a dollar store run. You'll get a lot of really cool looking stuff for cheap.

Too much!

But a pink feather boa could be alright....

If it was me, I'd be picking up some temporary hair dye, making a ribbon stencil and painting pink ribbons all over the horse. Most drug stores carry this temporary hair color that comes in a spray can and washes out easily with shampoo (might need a few shampoo/rinse cycles).

If you want to be extra animal safe, use pink kool-aid as dye... it just won't come out as easily. But the temporary hair stain should be safe. When it doubt, get a vegetable-based/vegan dye.

You have a white horse totally use it to your advantage! Pink everywhere!! Color him pink. Vet wrap ribbons etc!

Elmers glue, stencils, and craft store glitter go a long way....
