The Best Horse Halloween Costume Ideas for  2016

  1. Haunting Halloween Horse Costume Ideas

    Skeleton Horse Halloween Costume – My #1 favorite horse Halloween costume idea is the skeleton horse. I love this one so much that my next horse may seriously be all black. While it’s spooky enough during the day, imagine it at a night show, or walking across a dark field on Halloween night. Brrrr… gives me shivers!

  2. Haunting Halloween Horse Costume Ideas

    The Sheared Spider Web Horse – If you live in a colder climate, your horse may have enough of a winter coat to pull off this Spider Web Shear by Halloween.  Not to be attempted by amateurs, however.  You may need to call in Edward Scissorhands to get a polished look like this beauty is sporting!

  3. Haunting Halloween Horse Costume Ideas

    Safari Animal Horse Costume – There’s no appropriation in most of the Animal Kingdom so if you want to dress your horse up like a inspiring creature from a different region of the world, go for it!  These fun works of art can be perfected with a bit of time and some horse-safe dye or liquid chalk.

  4. Haunting Halloween Horse Costume Ideas

    The Headless Horseman Horse Halloween Costume – Another spin on my absolute favorite (remember the skeleton horse costume above?) is the spooky Headless Horseman idea. It requires, of course, a rider, but would be really fun to scare the neighbors with. Just practice your headless bellowing and plan to ride at dusk…

  5. Haunting Halloween Horse Costume Ideas

    The Rainbow Brite Horse Costume – If you prefer things on the lighter side of life, this cheery Rainbow Brite Horse Costume is sure to please the younger crowd, and maybe a few of us salty veterans, too.  It doesn’t matter whether you liked the cartoon or not, this colorful pony rainbow paint will probably bring a smile to your face.  All this lil pony needs is the socks!

  6. Dragon Horse Halloween Costume - For those riders who are looking for something especially impressive, this Dragon Horse and Fairy Rider costume set should do the trick.  This horse and rider Halloween costume idea will make everyone in the audience sit up and take notice… and maybe a few steps back! (And it’s my 2nd favorite on the list!)

    Dragon Horse Halloween Costume – For those riders who are looking for something especially impressive, this Dragon Horse and Fairy Rider costume set should do the trick.  It’s definitely a horse and rider Halloween costume that will make everyone in the audience sit up and take notice… and maybe take a few steps back! (And it’s my 2nd favorite on the list – only because it looks pretty difficult to pull off!)

  7. pony halloween costume idea

    The Not-So-Friendly Pony Costume – If you’ve got oddball funny bone ideas when it comes to Halloween, this ‘Friendly Pony’ costume may be the right one for you.  Once people take a second and ‘get it’, they’ll be chuckling about it for the rest of the day.  It’s a great horse and rider costume idea for Halloween 2016!  We just hope the bruises on the rider are truly fake.

  8. horse and rider halloween outfit

    Horse Inmate and Rider Cop Costumer – Is there a more traditional ‘couples’ costume than this Prisoner and Officer Horse and Rider Halloween getup? I’d like to see the pair of handcuffs that could keep that criminal under control, though!

  9. Horse Halloween Idea

    Bumblebee and Sunflower Horse and Rider Costume – Can’t get much more adorable than this lil flower and tiny bee.  The bright yellow details really draw the eye! It’s a perfect horse Halloween costume, and then can probably be reused for spring festivals, as well.

  10. Horse Black Tie Costume

    Black Tie Tux Horse Halloween Costume – When the occasion calls for a little bit of fun, but nothing too showy, you can subtly dress for Halloween with this Black Tie Tux Costume for your Horse.  You may already have riding gear to go with is so, it’s a pretty easy costume to throw together on a moment’s notice.

  11. Lord of the Rings Horse

    The Lord of the Rings Horse Halloween Costume – For those truly brilliant minds and fantasy fans, we have the a Halloween outfit idea that could have walked straight from the pages of Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. This would be my favorite – if I thought I could pull it off.

  12. Easy Horse Halloween Costume

    Pumpkin Hooves Halloween Paint – When you’ve got a little Halloween spirit – but not enough for a whole horse costume – you can keep things simple by just painting four adorable Jack-O-Lanterns on your horsey’s hooves… like this one!

  13. easy English horse Halloween Costume Idea

    Halloween Spirit Saddle Pads – And last but not least, the most minimal of effort can be made by simply throwing a Jack’O’Lantern Halloween English Saddle Pad on for the big day… or the entire month of October. It shows you have a good love of holidays, even if you don’t go overboard.

There are so many amazing things about the fall.  Not only do we get to ride in great weather but, we can also have a little fun with rider and horse Halloween costume ideas. We hope you find a great costume this Halloween, and send us pictures!
