Barn B-Day Party

by Evangeline
(Anchorage Alaska)

This is my dream horse B-day Party.


SET UP: Okay. I have my lesson. It is on a Friday, and afterwards we set up the party in the HUGE arena at the barn that i ride. Jumps are put up and presents are piled beside, on top, anywhere on 1 jump. All of the silver tack boxes(draped with horsey table cloths) are wiped down and brought into the arena for the food. Horse models, drawings, pinata, decorations in general are strung around the arena. Saddle pads and horse fabric stuffed with (sorry,not straw) but regular stuffing (used for make shift beanbags) are strewn around the tack boxes for chairs.

THE FOOD: The Cake:they both look delicious.....
Other food:cupcakes decorated with horsey designs such as bridles,saddles,outlines of horses,cowboy things, horseshoes (etc.)rabbit food,or in this case horse food, is on the table along with fried beans, coleslaw, chicken, mashed potatoes, ice cream (rocky road, vanilla, strawberry, strawberry rebel or mint chocolate chip.)with strawberry, caramel, or chocolate syrup.

Drinks: water, juice, soda, coffee, herbal tea,iced tea.

THE GAMES:

A jump course and a flat work class are set up as a kind of human show. Horseshoes are borrowed from a local ferrier and used for horseshoe toss. Sawdust is piled (they use it for bedding) and used for sawdust money pile. Horse movies are set up in Julie's office. There is a funny little skit about King Arthur and his Arabian horses (modern comedy) and then present opening! Also a book reading,if anybody's interested!
