Our final show of the season was held over Halloween weekend and appropriately called “The Spooktacular”. The highlight of the show every year is the costume contest, and it’s amazing to see the creativity that abounds. Our entry was a collaborative effort involving most of our barn friends; a lot of work and a lot of fun.   

We decided  to build a chariot and have it pulled by two of our mini horses. The minis pull carts in competition, but not as a team, so aside from constructing an authentic and safe chariot, the task was to take two itty bitty horses and convince them to work together. Easier said than done. The efforts were rewarding and the girls took the grand prize in the contest.

The practice run. Yay, it’s holding together.
