Before you choose your horse Halloween costume, think about the following:
Will you lead or ride your horse? Depending on your answer, you may want to tailor your costume around these considerations as well:
If leading your horse:
*Think about the length of your costume. You don’t want your horse to step on it as you walk and you don’t want to trip either.
*Think about the noise your costume will make as you walk or when the wind blows. Will that noise scare your horse (or other horses)?
*Think about the texture of your costume. If your horse bumps into you or you fall down, will anyone get hurt?
If riding your horse:
*Consider all of the above.
*If carrying a prop, such as a pumpkin, think about if you can control your horse adequately with one hand. If you have to drop your prop will it spook your horse or other horses around you?
*Make sure that your horse doesn’t mind having a costumed person on his back.
For example, everyone has seen an Arabian horse costume—usually colorful and flowing. To ride with a costume like this you will have to have a horse that doesn’t mind a flapping costume all around the body. The same will be true with a medieval horse costume.
