My Horse Party: "Hold Your Horses!" You're Invited!!!
by Anna M.
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!
