Halloween - fun for children and adults. I was noted for my annual Halloween parties and creative costumes.

Create a Costume for Your Horse and Yourself

Costuming a horse is a pretty big job. Why would you even want to put a costume on a horse? Actually there are many occasions when a creative costume on a horse is appropriate. Perhaps you want to ride the horse in a Halloween parade or participate in a horse show that has a costume category. Whatever your reason for wanting to put a costume on your horse, you need some ideas.

I've gathered some fun and creative costume ideas to get you started. Some are shown in videos. If you see an idea that you like, just watch the video over a few times or stop the action so you can study the costume.

Cute Horse and Rider Costume: A Flower and a Bumble Bee

Get Creative in Planning What You Will Dress Up As

It's tempting to fall back on traditional horse costumes of western or Arabian tack. First try thinking beyond that. Don't think a costume on the rider is all that's needed. Keep the focus on the horse.

Keep your horse's comfort in mind. You don't want something that interferes with your animal's movement or one that flaps in a way that might spook him.

Think big. You have a large animal to cover.. You can look at fantasy art to get ideas, but converting him or her into Pegasus may be tough to pull off. This example shows stripes, which might be accomplished with applications of body paint.

You Can Turn Your Horse into a Zebra

What a fascinating idea. Take a white horse (or a black one). Use the opposite color to dye the coat, making the stripes. People love this idea. It looks very cool, too, don't you think?

The person could dress in African safari gear to carry out the zebra theme.

Basic Black Allows You to Be Creative

What can you turn this into? How about the Black Knight or maybe a Black Bear or .....

Use your imagination.

Add some things to accessorize on the legs and head, or you can sew or draw on the blanket itself to come up with a fun and unique look! Have fun with it and enjoy!

Rambo Supreme Medium Weight Turnout Horse Blanket
Rambo Supreme Medium Weight Turnout Horse Blanket

Imagine yourself as King Arthur or the Black Knight - start with this marvelous turnout blanket. Add some embellishments, find a medieval costume for you to wear, get a fake sword, a banner to carry, and you are off to the jousting tournament.

 

A Knight Costume for the Rider

You can duplicate some of this by making your own outfit. Look for silver or gray long sleeved shirt and tights for the foundation. The helmet is hard to make on your own, so may be better to buy one of those. You'll want a sword and a shield.

Knight in Armor Costume

Want to look really professional, then take a look at this complete costume - a suit of armor.

For a black and white pinto think of transforming the horse into a cow. Dress up like a farmer with a milk pail, add horns to your "cow" and a cowbell around the neck.

Little Miss Muffet Costume Plus a Spider Web - for the Horse to Wear

This would be a fun costume. Choose the spider web to drape over the horse and a giant spider to attach to the web. The rider dresses up as Little Miss Muffet.

Another option is to have the rider dress in a scary costume such as a skeleton, zombie or as Dracula. You'll have an intense combination that will wow those who see it!

Giant Spider Web for the Little Miss Muffet and Horse Costume

I guess you could make your own spider web of string, but you can buy one ready-to-go like this one.

 

Little Miss Muffet Outfit

Child's Little Miss Muffet Costume (Large 10-12)
Child's Little Miss Muffet Costume (Large 10-12)

Isn't this one cute! Pink with a vintage styling suitable for a nursery rhyme character. The styling of this dress is reminds me of the old-time illustrations that one would see in a nursery rhyme book. You could try making your own outfit if you are a good seamstress.

 

I made a pirate horse sheet for my pony and he wore a pirate hat, eye patch, etc. I dressed as a pirate.

— LanaPaints

Pirate Theme for Horse and Rider

There are lots of ways you can go with the idea Lana provided. She decorated the horse with a pirate hat and also dressed herself as a pirate. There are plenty of such costumes for people available in October in the stores. It might be a little tricky getting the pirate hat to stay on the horse.

Another way to go is to use a brown horse blanket. Use electrical or painter's tape to outline the details of a pirate ship on the sides to turn the horse into a pirate ship. Add a jolly roger flag on short upright stick.

Beard, mustache, fake knives and gun, are part of most pirate costumes.

Create Something Awesome from a Simple Blanket

If you have a basic horse blanket with a color like orange, start thinking of all things orange. The first to come to mind is a pumpkin. Use black tape to mark out ribs on the orange blanket to look like pumpkins have. Add a vine with leaves (maybe weave it through the mane).

If you want a jack-o-lantern, add the mouth, nose and eyes using the black tape.

Look at whatever color of horse blanket you have. If it's black, think of witches and how to add a witches hat and broom and so on.

Use a Turnout Blanket as the Base for a Costume

TUFFRIDER 600D Turnout Blanket - Orange 74
TUFFRIDER 600D Turnout Blanket - Orange 74

There are a variety of colors in horse turnout blankets. Look them over for inspiration. They make a great base for a horse's costume for Halloween horse shows, for a parade or other event. Just let your mind free to invent and accessorize. This blanket in orange makes me instantly think of a pumpkin. How about the rider dressing as a black cat with a witches hat while the side of the orange blanket gets a jack 'o lantern face (paint or black tape).

 

Arabian Show Costumes on eBay - The auctions change regularly

Take a look at some of the fabulous Arabian costumes available for horses and riders on eBay. If you see something you're interested in, bid today, because auctions and items change on a regular basis, and I'd hate to see you miss out on the item you want or a great price deal!


Although these costumes can be quite elaborate and therefore expensive, think of them as an investment. You'll get years of use from it.

What Costume Can You Make with a Green Turnout Blanket?

Royal Hamilton WB-1200D-HG-S Turnout Horse Blanket Hunter Green with Black Trim, 75-Inch, Small
Royal Hamilton WB-1200D-HG-S Turnout Horse Blanket Hunter Green with Black Trim, 75-Inch, Small

Add a Robin Hood hat with a feather for the horse and have the rider dressed as Maid Marian.

Alternate idea for a green turnout horse blanket: attach lots of artificial flowers to the blanket and have the rider dress as a gardener with a straw hat. The rider could carry a plastic watering can.

 

Use Blankets and Body Wraps for a Nice Base in Which to Start

For a blue horse blanket/turnout, think of the blue as a lake and dress the rider in a feathery swan costume. Use your imagination. Pin a few artificial waterlilies to the blue cover.

For a red checked turnout blanket, think of a picnic table. What could the rider dress as? A teacup, a giant ant, a victorian lady with a picnic basket?

For a purple horse blanket, think of California Raisins or clump of grapes.

it would be fun to either hang or paint a sign that says "Does this rider make my butt look big?"

Think of Historic Ways That Horses Were Used

This is a parade in Munich, Germany. The owner wears a traditional German costume and the horse carries beer making supplies.

Ideas for Other Work Horse Outfits

Think of all the ways in the past that horses served mankind. How can you represent some of those in your costume and the costume for the horse?

  • Try costuming yourself as a coal miner and your horse as the overburdened animal that pulled the coal cart underground. This might be particularly effective on a light colored horse. Get a horse collar and harness, use horse-approved paint to put black smudges about the horse. Dress yourself in coveralls, liberally smudged with black, and put a pickaxe over your shoulder.
  • Fox hunter and his horse. You'll need the really nice jodphers, high boots, red jacket, and the black velvet cap. For the horse, just the regular English saddle. Get a stuffed toy fox and perch it behind the saddle. Pretend to be looking for it, and not realizing it is behind you.
  • Juan Valdez and his burro. Create long burro ears for your horse to wear. Attach stuffed bags on each side of the horse. Use a Mexican outfit for the rider. Juan Valdez was a fictional character in coffee commercials.

This is available in a variety of colors. You can add things to it by drawing on it or sewing patches, words and drawings to make it unique and awesome. Sometimes it's nice to start with a plain and simple base color and add to it as you see fit.

Turn a Horse's Fly Mask into a Halloween Mask

This could easily have features attached to it to look like a ghost. Then start thinking of white sheets to cover the horse's body. Remember to try this out ahead of the event to be sure your horse accepts the draping and possible flapping of the sheets.

Hamilton Fly Mask for Horses Extended Length, Large, Natural Mesh With Black Trim
Hamilton Fly Mask for Horses Extended Length, Large, Natural Mesh With Black Trim

Actually with a white horse, I think you can skip covering the body. Have the horse be Casper the Ghost and the rider can dress as Wendy, the Good Little Witch.

How about a wedding theme? The rider could be dressed in a tux as the groom or in a bride's dress. The horse could have garlands of fake roses draped over it.

I would recommend staying away from a costume like a KuKluxKlan one, even though the white theme might bring that to mind. Such a costume would be highly offensive and racist.

 

I always dress up my horse on Halloween and walk up and down the streets- cars are careful because they know little kids will be out, and little kids are amazed because it's a HORSE! Last Halloween, she was a lion and I was a lion tamer- the kids went nuts! An angel with a unicorn was my favorite.

Stencil Stars or Hearts for Animals

Think of using the stars with some fabric puffy clouds, then add some angels around the mane area or dress the rider as an angel.

Use your imagination with these. There are so many possibilities. The sky is the limit!

How about stenciling stars on a black coat? The rider can be dressed as an angel or as the moon or a wizard. You need to buy the glitter gel separately. You can brush it out or wash it off when you no longer want it.

Look at Pictures of Carousel Horse Art for Inspiration

Duplicating this carousel horse costume would require some sewing skills and work with fabrics and maybe a glue gun.

Look onlline for photos of old-time carousels with the painted wooden horses. You can also check your local library for a book like the one below.

      You may have to opt for a costume that doesn't include paint in this case. Too bad.

      I have experimented in the past with painting my horse. When my horse starts sweating the paint starts running. Is there a safe paint for my horse that will stay on but can be washed off later?

      @Virginia Allain: I would try to keep the costumes very affordable. Several of the riders I used to go places with quite often didn't have the time or felt they couldn't design something fancy enough. So I was kind of trying to see if there would be a market for ready made costumes. You have some really cool ideas posted here, very nice to see.

      @anonymous: There's definitely a need for costumes for horses. This page had 600 visitors this past week. Of course, many of them want to make their own and save money. I bet there are quite a few who want to buy a quality ready-to-wear outfit for their horse though.

      As a horse owner I was curious, but this is not something we would want to do with our horses. Like you say it depends on their nature. We had a real sweety who would not have minded, but the current ones would get very upset.

      First my brain when tilt when i saw your lens title and as I got to your intro, it was of course...a costume for a horse...and you handled it all wonderfully. I think horses know when they are dressed up for something special and there's just a little more perk in their step and they have that 'look at me' smile about them.
