Death's Steed

deaths steed horse and rider Halloween costume

Death's Steed with Ashley riding Jazz has a great Halloween feel and could easily be adapted with different types of decorations. She made it for less than $50 and used some items she had on hand. (I love reusing items!) That said, Ashley reported some other horses in her class got a little spooked by this costume, so be careful!

It's Just a little Hocus Pocus

horse dressed up for halloween in hocus pocus costume

Courtney created a really beautiful look, dressing up as Winifred Sanderson from one of her favorites movies with her costume, It's Just a Little Hocus Pocus. She borrowed her costume but added embellishments. Her horse's costume was minimal but hers got lots of attention. To me her costume demonstrates that even if your horse wouldn't do well in an elaborate costume you can create a great look with what you wear.

Rocking horse and little girl

The horse is wearing two cutouts that look like the bottom of a rocking horse. A girl dressed up like a little kid is riding the horse.



This rocking horse and little girl horse and rider Halloween costume was submitted by D'Ann. This is a really unique and impressive costume that will wow others if you can make it (and your horse will wear it). Not only do I love the rocker portion of the costume but I also love the color coordination happening within this costume. But no worries if this is not the horse and rider costume for you, there are plenty more costumes below to inspire further horse costume ideas!

Rafiki and young simba

A buckskin horse with a fake colorful looking lion mane on is standing next to a girl wearing a white wig with face paint on that looks like a monkey.



Looking for a cute horse and rider costume? Check out this costume titled Rafiki and young Simba that was submitted by Heather. While this face paint in this horse and rider costume is quite elaborate, the rest of this costume is rather easy making this a great option for those on a tight timeline. I also think that this would be an easier costume to ride in since there isn't really much on the horse's body to affect movement or performance.

SuperCalifragilisticexpialidocious

A girl wearing a Mary Poppins outfit standing next to a horse that is painted in purple with flowers and a pole attached to the saddle to make the horse look like a carousel horse.


Parker submitted this incredible horse and rider costume she calls Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. This is definitely an incredible horse costume! I mean the horse is completely painted, the rider is in full costume, the saddle is covered, etc. If you didn't want to paint your horse I think you could probably get a purple sleezy and sew flowers and the other elements onto it.

Horse In the hat

Check out this adorable horse in the hat horse and rider Halloween costume submitted by Ananda. I love how cute and straightforward this Dr. Seuss inspired horse and rider costume is. If you love the book Cat In The Hat but want to do it with your horse this is a great horse costume option. You could even treat this as more of a horse costume idea and build off of it with some additional costume accessories such as red and white polo wraps, saddle pad, and some colorful mane and tail extensions.

Working on the chain gang

This cute horse and rider costume titled Working on the Chain Gang was submitted by Lynn. Her ability to create these incredible matching outfits for both herself and two horses is amazing. If you are intimidated by trying to make these horse and rider costumes maybe consider using a black and white striped cloth with the hats for the horse and you can wear the full costume. You could also attach the denim overalls on a breast plate.

Beauties and their beasts

A girl dressed up like Belle on a white horse and a guy dressed up like the beast from beauty and the beast on a black horse.

Abbey and Kate submitted these awesome horse and rider costumes they call beauties and their beasts. I love how these riders added flowers to the horses' manes and had decorations tied to the reins. The rider's costumes were also very true to the costumes in the movie The Beauty And The Beast which made the horse and rider costume easily recognizable.

purple sugar skull bride

A woman dressed up as a dead bride in a purple dress standing next to her horse who is decorated with purple accessories.


The purple sugar skull bride horse and rider costume was submitted by Rosie. This incredible outfit is definitely one of the most impressive horse and riders out there. Taking an old wedding dress and turning it into a costume (as she did) is a wonderful idea. The face paint and hat made a great rider costume while the purple flowers decorating the horse's mane, tail, and body pull this all together to create a beautiful horse and rider costume.

tampa seahorse

A woman dressed like a mermaid laying on her horse who is dressed up to look like the ocean.


Lacey submitted this awesome horse and rider costume called Tampa Seahorse. I love the fact that she used a shower curtain and a piƱata to make her horse's costume. Not only was the idea super inventive but it also means that the costume is that much easier to replicate. The only thing that you may want to consider before replicating this costume is that it would probably be hard to ride your horse with it on.

This 101 Dalmatians horse and rider costume was submitted by Andrea. It's so cute that she not only had a horse and rider costume but that she also had a costume on her dog! The spots she put on her horse, red 'collar', and fake dog ears are all adorable. Her Cruella de Vil outfit is also well done with the wig and spotted shirt.

A horse dressed up as the Energizer bunny standing next to a woman wearing an Energizer battery costume.

Heather submitted this great Energizer bunny inspired horse and rider costume. Horse costume ideas can be hard to come up with but Heather came up with something unique and carried it out really well. The signs on her and the horse show exactly what she is trying to do in terms of her costume and the other simple elements such as the cloth and polo wraps create a complete costume look.

Looking for an awesome horse and rider costume? Check out this one called Woodland Wenches submitted by Tanya. Both riders in the pictures have on unique medieval related costumes and the armor looking plates on their horses' faces complete the medieval look. If you like these two horse costume ideas I would recommend checking out Etsy as they have several of these kind of horse face plate accessories.

Chik-Fil-A Chicken and Cow is the title of this adorable horse and rider costume that was submitted by Lori. This is definitely one of the more innovative horse costume ideas I have seen. The chicken costume for the miniature pony is very impressive especially the chicken feet. The only issue I could see with this horse and rider costume is the time it would take to recreate it for a horse.

miss america

A horse with a slash that says Miss America around her neck and a piece of cloth with an American flag on it draped over the horse's back.

Miss America is another horse costume submitted by Cindy. If you need another horse costume option that would be relatively easy and quick to make this is a good option. I could definately see someone getting or making an American flag saddle pad, putting the Miss America sash around their horse's neck, and adding some sparkles to their horse's mane and tail for a cute horse costume.

Want to dress your horse up as a witch for Halloween? Check out this Halloween Witch costume by Ashlee. Now depending on your horse you may not be able to get them to wear the witch hat, but I think that even without the hat you would still have a cute horse costume. One of the things I like most about this horse costume is that it blends several cute horse costume ideas together to create a whole look. It isn't just about the witch hat or the pumpkins, it is rather about how all the elements work together.

This super creative Ghostbusters horse and rider costume was submitted by Tanner, Gavin, and Summer. I absolutely love how they made the Ghostbusters van look so realistic and at the same time it is designed in such a way as to allow the rider to still have a saddle. The horse costume was completed with these Ghostbuster rider costumes.

Flintstones: Pyro and Poco Style horse and rider costume was submitted by Lynn. I think it is super cute how the horses were dressed up as Flintstone characters and the riders are dressed up as a dragon and Flintstone character. The only trouble you may have with this horse Halloween costume is that it may be hard for your horse to fully move in it.

warrior pyro and his trusty steed "stick"

A horse dressed up like warrior pyro standing next to a stick horse with a chariot attached to it.

Lynn submitted this cute and funny horse costume called Warrior Pyro and His Trusty Steed "Stick". Having the stick horse pulling the carriage is hilarious and combine that with the fact that the horse is dressed as the warrior you have a great, funny horse Halloween costume. Another plus of this horse costume is that it actually provides some great inspiration for other horse costume ideas. You could dress up as the warrior and the horse could be dressed up to pull the cart or the horse could be dressed up as the cart.

Safari Fun

Safari Fun was a wonderful horse costume submitted by Janine. This horse costume is not an easy one whether you are planning to draw the giraffe spots or clip the giraffe markings. It will also probably take some serious time to braid the horse's mane and tail. Luckily, the rider costume will probably be much easier to replicate and could even be purchased.

Horse Halloween ideas that involve 4th of July decorations may seem like they won't work, but as you can see from the Patriotic Princess horse costume that Ashlee submitted they clearly do. I think the USA tag along with all the cute patriotic elements such as the red, white, and blue hat is adorable.

This awesome horse and rider costume called Zombie Super Heroes Gone Bad was submitted by Drea. The Superman costume that the horse is wearing combined with the Wonder Woman costume she is wearing definitely creates a super hero theme. When you incorporate the zombie makeup on the horse and rider it definitely takes the costume up another notch and shows even extra effort.

The Magical Unicorn Hula and Her Fairies Emily and Jadyn was submitted by Kimberly. The flowers on the halter and around the horse's neck are all really beautiful. I also love how the flowers on the horse are the same as those that are part of the rider costumes to make the outfits more cohesive. Plus the rider costumes look straightforward enough to be made out of stuff that you already have or can get at a thrift store.

There are a lot of different directions you can take a costume like this. For example, you could use a big piece of cloth on the horse's body, ribbon in the mane and tail, and red glitter paint on the horse's hooves.

The horse Halloween costume itself is definitely on the simpler side but that does mean it is easier to recreate in case you are in a time crunch.

Subhay was submitted by Allison and is definitely a fun horse costume. Subhay is quite a creative play on words and very appropriate for a horse costume. Plus if you are looking for less spooky horse costume ideas, this one would most likely be a good option as it is more similar to a blanket or cooler that your horse is already probably use to.

The costume titled We're Off To The Wizard was submitted by Lynn and is one of my favorites. The tin man and scarecrow horse costumes are extremely impressive. Combined with the lion and Dorothy rider costumes all you need is a dog in a Toto costume to complete the look. But even without Toto the horse and rider costume combinations are incredible.

An anonymous horse lover submitted this horse and rider costume called Graveside Zombies. The rider costumes are particularly elaborate and impressive. The horse costumes are also well done and the spider legs coming off the horse with the spider costume is fabulous. While not all horses would put up with the spider legs, if your horse does tolerate them it makes for an impressive look.

Katie submitted the Boney Poney horse costume. Horse costume ideas often involve cloth, moving pieces, etc but this horse costume doesn't have all that. Instead this simple but effective horse costume is done by drawing on your horse. While drawing your horse's skeleton on them for a horse costume will be time consuming you don't have to worry about flapping pieces of cloth which is always good.

Shannon submitted this horse and rider costume titled Por El Amor De Un Caballo. If you are a fan of both art and drawing chances are you will enjoy creating this horse and rider costume. The rider's costume seems pretty straightforward while the horse's costume looks much more intricate. One reason I like horse costume ideas for horses that involve drawing on the horse instead of putting cloth on them is because it is less spooky and you don't have to worry about your horse stepping on their costume. If you have the time to do this detail work I think this costume could be a good option.

If you could find some rainbow fabric and white fabric I think the creation of this horse costume and rider costume would be pretty straightforward. Should you want to wear a saddle and helmet I think all you would have to do is use a little more fabric to account for the extra height they create.

Mario Kart is the title of this horse and rider costume or rather costumes. Creating one horse and rider costume combination is hard enough but creating three of the same theme is even more impressive. I love how all the horse and rider costume combinations look similar enough to carry a theme while being unique in its own way. I'm not sure many horses would like to ride around with balloons attached to them (or even ride in a ring with a horse that had balloons attached to him or her) so keep that in mind when making this costume.

it's a kind of magic

Two horses and two riders. One horse is dressed as a magician. One horse is dressed as a bunny coming out of a top hat. Both riders are dressed as magicians.

It's A Kind Of Magic is a horse and rider costume submitted by Charlotte. Okay, I don't even think this would have been one of the horse costume ideas I could have dreamed up let alone figure out how to create. The magician outfits for the riders would probably be the easiest element to recreate, while the horse costumes would be much more difficult to make.

my little devil

A girl wearing red riding a pony with devil horns on and red accessories.



My Little Devil is the horse and rider costume submitted by Shauna. The devil horns and red accessories definitely create a devil costume. I like the fact that someone could easily ride their horse in this costume and I like the fact that this costume is something you could put together quickly in case you need a last minute horse and rider costume.

Four pictures showing a horse in a costume that is made up of decorations related to the band one direction. The girl holding the horse in the pictures has a striped shirt and red pants on.


Georgia submitted this horse and rider costume she is calling Harry Styles And Louis Tomlinson From One Direction. This cool costume is one that other horse owners could not only replicate but it also inspires several horse costume ideas. I mean you could really base this costume off any other band that you love.

School Girl

A horse with a backpack on its back and two pieces of paper on its neck.

School girl is the title of this horse costume submitted by Cindy. This horse costume is a simple one that is easy to recreate. If you needed to make a last minute horse costume this is definitely a great option. However, if you wanted to take this costume up a few notches I think some school supplies glued on a horse sleezy or perhaps a back to school banner incorporated in the horse's mane would help give a more themed look.

Almost Runs Like a Deere

Lynn has entered our contest with some awesome costumes and this one, Almost Runs Like a Deere, is amazing! She put a lot into this with the wheels, cardboard cab and everything else but she said it only cost her less than $50! I wouldn't try this with every horse but hers is obviously very chill. It's a super fun and standout costume for a great horse.

Super Mario

This group put together an amazing Super Mario costume. Clearly a lot of work went into this group's costume submitted by Gina. She also did a great job describing how she made each of the costumes. One thing I really like about this costume is that you could dress up as many characters as you like, depending on your group.
