What about an elephant? If he's calm enough that'd be hilarious! Big droopy ears stitched on to a halter and a trunk made of foam??? Here comes the white elephant? LOL

If you want to go classic, you could also do the good witch of the north.

you could braid/plat his mane and tail a few days before hand so it goes all wavey and curly, put glitter all over him, tie ribbons that are the same length as his mane right at the top so there is colour flowing down with his mane and tail, ummm....... you could get some of those stick on diamotes (sorry bout spelling) fake crystal things to stick on his face...... and paint his hooves with that black tar so his hooves are black and have a pretty sparlkly bridal. Just make him look magical. I think that would look awsome!!!! and you could dress up all pretty and where long flowing cloths that would like drape over him and down his side!

OMG I love this!!!! I want a white horse now so I can do this lol. I think the horse is supposed to be a pegasus. It doesn't look like they are the girls wings, she looks like a goddess and not like an angel. If they are her wings then they look weird.

I'd go for the princess look. If it's going to be at night, get a strand or 2 of battery powered christmas lights, preferably LED's, and attach them to you, your tack, and your horse (maybe).

Or you could do a zebra, or you could be Cruella Deville and your horse could be a dalmation.

Take a blue cooler or something that resembles water, tape party ribbon all over it(the paper kind that rips apart for birthdays), wear a swimming suit over top some riding clothes and wear a snorkel VOILA! You can add ribbon where ever you want on his bridle etc etc from there.

you will still need to put wings on if you make him a pegasus.
You dont have to use big wings for the whole fairly tail thing, if any at all. You could just make little wings for you out of coat hangers and stockings and then pretty them all up.
