I’ve reclaimed Halloween as a holiday in my single life. Tim never liked it, so it’s one of the holidays that has absolutely no intense feelings associated with him. One year we did hold a “Zombies vs Ninjas vs Pirates” party that was assuredly fantastic, but that was the last time him and I celebrated Halloween together… and that was 8 years ago?
Anyway, one day during lessons I told my trainer we should have a horse halloween party at the barn. She kind of shrugged in that defeated way she has when I start excitedly spewing ideas, and since this idea doesn’t involve me buying any horses I quickly jumped, “OKAY GREAT I WILL ORGANIZE IT!”
So that’s happening.
Since yesterday I pulled a bait in switch on all my loyal horse readers by dabbling into politics (sorry not sorry, had to get that off my chest), today I will placate the situation by posting cool images of horse halloween costumes. One because my barn friends are trying to figure out what to dress their horses up in to win the Halloween contest, and two because horses in costume are almost always non-polarizing.
*Reel Survivor reliving his glory days during Circle D’s annual Halloween ride* Blaze, currently 33 is reliving his days on the track, back when he was a young spry 2 year old. Never would I have ever thought I would be so blessed to have him in my life. This horse has had an incredible career spanning from Racing to Hunter Jumper, English, Western Pleasure, and dabbling in basic Dressage. My boy sure can do it all, but has earned his right to light trail rides and tons of TLC. He sure has a lot of get up and go left in him though. After all, he has the heart of a champion and a spirit of a king.

And happy Halloween from Solitaire and myself (we were a card soldier and (a very half-hearted attempt at) the Queen of Hearts, respectively). Gonna amp up this costume and make some real card armor for next year so that we can both be soldiers! #horse #horses #horseyhalloween #halloweenhorse #halloweenhorses #horsecostume #instahorse #instahorses #horsetagram #horsesofinstagram #halloween #halloweencostume
