Happy Halloween!

Once upon a time, I worked at a therapeutic riding center as an instructor and equine manager. (Long time readers of this blog will remember those times!) There were a lot of stressful things about that job, but it was fun and rewarding most of the time. One year, I arrived to work extra early on Halloween to dress up a few of the horses. The students and volunteers loved it, and many of them pitched in all day to decorate more horses!

It was pretty easy to make this big chestnut mare a giraffe.
Not the most anatomically correct or fancy skeleton horse, but fun nonetheless!
Who better to be Uncle Sam than a world champion American Quarter Horse?

I was working with limited time and resources, but dressing up therapy horses was an awfully good way to spend Halloween! I can’t wait to see the costumes my fellow bloggers come up with for their mounts.

  1. I have always wanted to go all-out with Murray for Hallowe’en, but somehow Hallowe’en sneaks upon me every year and I’ve put no thought or preparation into it.
