My Horse Party: "Hold Your Horses!" You're Invited!!!

by Anna M.
(Naperville, IL)

Here's my horse party idea.

To start off, every party needs some invitations. Find either a horse shaped card, or a card with horses on the cover. The invitation could say "Hold Your Horses! You're Invited to my Party!" on the cover. Then state the information about your party inside. You can draw some pictures of horses to put inside each invitaion. Ask your guests to bring their best horse clothes, an apple or carrot, and their brightest smile!

You can greet everyone with a basket for your guests to put their apple or carrot into. You'll send the supplies to a stable to brighten up the horses' day. You can play 'Horseshoes', watch a horse themed movie, or even go to a stable to ride! Hold some horse themed contests like a drawing contest. Each guest will draw a horse, and hang up all the drawings to compare in the end.

You can also hold relay races. Have the first person walk, then the next person 'trot', then the third will 'canter', and the fourth will go into a 'gallop', sprinting to the finish line! You can mix up the gaits and include some fun types of style, like your best dressage horse pose!

For food, make sure to have 'horseshoe cookies'. Pick your favorite type of cookie, and shape them into horseshoes. Have a horse shaped cake, with horse figures on top of it.

For goodie bags, put a horseshoe in each, some horse chocholate, some mini horses, and a horse bookmark! They'll feel the spirit even after your party when they read a book. They can hang up the horseshoe up on their wall! Put all the horses on a shelf, and you're on your way to creating a horse themed room! If they love your party very much, they may want to start getting more involved with horses!

Thanks for commenting! About the horseshoes, there is a local riding store by my neighborhood where they sell different types of horseshoes. Some are even those color your one kinds. The shoes don't have to be exactly the same as real ones, for those are expensive. They can be any type of horseshoe, even clay ones!

It was ok but not very original. It also sounded a little bit pricey and where would you get horseshoes from? It's not like you see them at Target every day. But, it is a good idea and I wouldn't mind having it as a party.

I'd pick this one!

First of all, the title got my attention. It was original, and demonstrated an amazing way to use a common saying in this particular contest to create something new. The games and food showed a perfect horse themed party. The goodie bags idea was perfect. Adding a horseshoe and other horse related items would be enough for more horse loving girls to emerge. Anna's ideas not only created a horse themed party, but also showed her guests how amazing horses can be, and may have even urged some of the girls to start riding, or learning more about horses!
