I am going to enter in a costume class with an 80's theme!  I have my outfit figured out, I juss need one for my horse.
I understand that a lot of you will have no idea what could be done with my horse, so please just throw ideas at me, please?!?!?!?
OR... check out westernhorseman.com and take a look at a few pictures of the horses there.  Your ideas would help, soooo much!
 Grin I need help! Grin
Please? Huh

you know those dog suits that just go over the front two legs and tie around the neck? im confused about this topic.. BUT maybe you could make a gigantic one for your... horse? You could paint its hooves.. or would that be inhumane? Im seriously stumped i hope i was of some help.

im going to live forever or die trying.

Do you have a direct link to the pictures of horse costumes on that website? I went there to look but I didn't want to wade through the whole site (it has a lot of stuff on it)...
I think a good idea would be to make her some leg warmers- You know, like the ones you use when they hurt their knees, but just make them 80s style, a la those horrible ones in the "Let's Get Physical" video. You could even make them out of some hot pink fabric or something wild- It would be easy, comfortable for the horse, and definitely very 80s. To go with them, make her a terry cloth headband, and some kind of neck scarf.

I waded, and that's what I found.  The pics of the "Trick or Trot" show a LOT of horse costumes.

I think it depends on what YOUR costume is.  The legwarmers and headband are a great idea, if your costume will be similarly themed, but if you're dressed a la Cindy Lauper or Madonna, with lace skirts that look like slips, etc., then your horse might look silly in leg warmers.  (Oh, I could go on forever with that one...)  So, give us some idea what you'll be wearing!

I like 80's costumes....and I love horses. What a cool thing to put together..LOL Something that really screams 1980's to me is leg warmers and banana clips. (or even butterfly clips) bright blue eyeshadow, glitter, layered socks...(meaning more than one pair worn at the same time in different colors) uhm...tons of gaudy jewelry, oh oh and those, big baggy sweaters that the aerobics gals wore, and they would like...cut the collar out so it was just huge and then they would wear little skinny tight spandex pants underneath. hahaa haha this is making me giggle. I hope ya post a pic of whatever design ya go for Smiley

You sound like my mom! Cheesy She used to have tons of horses and dress them up for contests. I dont know if this would work but once she made the horse into a zebra using black paint so maybe you could use florescent hair color that comes out in one wash to brighten her up? Legwarmers sound good too
