You know what we are talking about.
Your barn mates have been formulating a plan all summer long. Jenny wanted to have her own costume, but you all wanted to do a group thing at the Halloween show this year.
So, as the days ticked away and October crept closer and closer, your store credit card at Joanne’s got higher and higher as crepe, cotton batting and lots and lots of Velcro filled the barn aisles. But finally! Your masterpieces are ready. You and your mates have desensitized your poor horses to whatever franken-costume you have created… but you are sure to win. And a right of passage for the horse crazy girl, lucky enough to have a horse that doesn’t shy away from the mere sight of bemberg, burlap and brocade has arrived. For it is Halloween, and whether you are having a barn party, or attending a super-charged holiday frenzy of a horse show, some of the most
insane creative horse costumes are about to emerge from the depths of every kids mind.
We scoured the interwebs… ok, I asked my friends to send me their favorite photos, and we present them here – in all of their Halloween, Horsey glory! Scroll through, and enjoy!
We will use all the feathers. All. The. Feathers.
Even barn cats get in on the fun… even though they are clearly not entertained.

Super cute, but really, that is a gigantic horse!
So, Dad, I want to hang 9 foot long spider legs off of the sides of Rosie. You can help me with that, right?
If this pony is for sale, we want it.
This one too. The tail!
Horse show dogs!
Wonder Woman and Superman, before all these comic book movies made them cool.
Technically, this one was not at a Halloween show, but at a summer show… but Holy Flamingos Batman!
All the cutes.
If you don’t get this one it’s OK. ‘Harley is a three legged dog. A “tri-pod” if you will!
