    Ideas to dress up a horse for a Christmas parade?

    Hey, guys!
    So, this weekend Jill gets to be all fancied up for a Christmas parade! (She's a black Tennessee walker mare.) I have red and silver tinsel, silver bows, and silver bells. I'm wanting to get battery powered Christmas lights, and reindeer antlers. Any other ideas?
    Thanks for looking!

    You could wear an elf outfit while you are riding!

    You can use garland with pointsettas for around her neck.

    Here is a link to pictures of a moonlite Christmas trail ride in Las Vegas. I was disappointed that I couldn't go, but there are some pictures of horses and riders decorated for Christmas. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the ideas! I really appreciate it. I think I'll try to get the garland and poinsettas...and I liked the look of the socks on the horses legs. Too cute!

    We painted our horses hoofs with clear hoof polish then put glitter all over them! Everyone kept commenting on our horses pedicures..

    We live in Florida so it was hot and ignorant people were making it miserable for us so excuse the grumpy expressions!

    It eventually wears off.. We were awfully sparkly for our lessons after that though!
    Yeah, the tinsel is just wrapped around the reins.

    I was going to suggest putting on 2 red polo wraps and 2 green! Also you could put a tree skirt over your saddle pad right at the back so that it hangs over your horse's butt a bit!
