Ooh, that's a cute one.

What about a Native American Princess and her war pony?

I may be dressing Hoove as a war pony for our Halloween fundraiser.

I love the Native American idea a ton.
Beau and I are going Renaissance. He's being dressed up as a "war pony" as well. Not really a war pony but lmao I'm not sure what to call it

We had a costume contest last year and we dressed Victor up as a devil and Norman as an angel. XD You could be a knight and your mare could be a warhorse. That could get expensive, though. Or a jockey and racehorse? Or a black cat and a witch, or something like that. Hope this was helpful. lol

What I'd do is get a roll of cheap wrapping paper, and either just leave the wrapping paper on it, or take it off and decorate it yourself.. then put something like duct tape around the bottom, make a hole through it (like, stick a long nail horizontally through it near the bottom), and put string through the hole and tie it around the horse's girth area sort of like an extra girth? Lmao that's a good question, I can't think of any other way to attach it at the moment unless you wanted to just hold it there..

If you ride western you could put it on the horn. But that could get really annoying. But a carousel horse would be cute!

Here is a video with a bunch of costume pics;
I like the trousers at 2:45. :)

You could be a bee and your horse could be a flower. (I had to read the Secret Life of Bees for school so the idea was already in my head)
