For the costume contest, they were pirates. Scout's missing eye lends perfectly to the eye patch.
We had a little photoshoot at the barn the week before to fully document the costume.
The day of the photos, the sky was amazing with lovely clouds and pretty colors in the sunset and the moon at just the right height.
The bridle Scout is wearing is the one Carus won in the raffle at Horse Fair back in June. It fits him perfectly and has heart-shaped pieces all along both sides and across the brow-band.
He had no problem with the hat or eye patch whatsoever. He's such a good boy!
Halloween Day - Boo Bash
Warming up before the contest starts.
Just put on the finishing touches - hats (Carus's was tied onto her helmet which she needs to wear always when riding*) and Carus, Scout, and I posed for a photo with Karen (Scout's owner and our ride).
Walking the circle for the judge.
First place in the costume contest!! Blue ribbon for Carus and a new one-eared bridle for Scout.
I made a little video of the clips I took of their runs. I'm still not a great videographer...or video editor, but hey, I try. I even figured out how to put it to music! (You can view the video here on YouTube.)
The prize haul.
*Yes, she was without the helmet for the photoshoot but that was in a controlled environment while they were standing still/posing for just a moment.
