Blog Hop: Halloween Past, Present, & Future

Blog Hop: Halloween Past, Present, & Future


October’s Bridle and Bone Blog Hop is appropriately Halloween-themed.

Equestrian Blog Hop

To be perfectly honest, Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays. I have zero self-control, so put me in front of candy, and I’ll eat it. Not fantastic for a girl who really wants to watch her sugar intake. So, I’ll keep this short and sweet!

One of my best friends may be the queen of Halloween FX makeup, but I am not, and costumes are not my strong suit.

So, limitation of candy + bad costumes = boring Halloween.

I haven’t had a barn Halloween tradition in years. At my first barn, PLF, we had a Halloween costume party, but after that it never seemed important, especially as I drifted between farms. But I distinctly remember my brother dressing up with the horse he used to ride as Toy Story characters at that first barn and letting the old schoolies bob for apples!

I would love to have a Halloween tradition. My current barn family is amazing, and I plan to stay here as long as I can. We didn’t do anything this year, but I’d love to have a costume contest or something fun like that – a way to party together.

However, we’re also lucky to have plenty of Halloween-themed shows (especially one well-known Hunter Pace) near us, and I’d absolutely love to be able to do one or more of those. So, once Beau and I have conquered some more shows and we’ve found the elusive horse trailer we need, maybe this can be a Halloween tradition for years to come.

Whatever spooky tradition we come up with, I can’t wait to share it with Beau!

  1. I’m not usually a Halloween person. Lots of work for one day. But I was inspired this year. The work was worth it. I should remember that when I try to talk myself out of things.

    Find a place to donate the candy?
