Halloween Fun With Horses
Horses And Halloween
It is so much fun to dress up. Dress up ourselves, our dogs! Even our horses! Dressing up horses can be a little bit more difficult though, just because you have to make sure whatever you plan on putting on them won't scare them! So plan on a practice run! Also, take into consideration whether or not you are going to be leading your horse and parading it around or riding it. That will definitely play a role in deciding the details of your costume. Don't forget, if you are riding, no costume is an excuse to not wear a helmet!

Safety First, Always!
Safety, as I said before, should always be the first priority, even in Halloween fun with horses. Consider if the things you plan on putting on your horse might scare them. Do they make noises when he moves? Will he feel restricted in any way?
Most likely if your horse is calm enough to consider dressing up, he will be totally chill at whatever you decide to put on him! Just make sure you do a test run first just in case!
A fun way to do a test run is to get your costume and your horses costume on and have a friend take pictures for you!
Using Non Toxic Paint
You can use non-toxic paint, like the kind little kids use to paint your horse into whatever you might want him to be if you have the artistic ability! Even if you don't have fancy art skills it can be fun to paint your horse into something for Halloween. Usually, once the paint dries you can brush it off, pretty easily with a had brush and a curry comb!
Trick Or Treating On Horseback?
I have never been trick or treating on horseback. The sound of it actually makes me a little nervous. Riding on neighborhood streets in the dark... You can do all kind of fun activities at the farm where you trick or treat with the horses in their Halloween Costumes. Either mounted or unmounted! Anything from a costume parade around the farm with stops on the way for candy. To games where they have to answer knowledge questions to win their trick or treat candy!
There are plenty of ways to have fun with horses and Halloween and still be safe!
