Be safe girls! A horse can spook if your costume is flowing, or noisy, or has unusual smells or textures.

So think about that carefully when making and choosing your costume:

* Give your horse a chance to sniff and see every piece of your costume before you mount your horse.

* Use only safe materials - glitter, glue, dyes or paints should be non-toxic. You don’t want to give your horse (or you) an allergic reaction!

* Always wear your helmet when you are on your horse. If you’re worried it won’t look good with your costume, consider a helmet cover. Better safe than sorry!
