Have a competitive horse crazy kid? A horse show party is a great way to educate your
guests about show jumping, tent pegging, vaulting, reining, combined driving,
Dressage, barrel racing and more. You might even take the kids to a real horse show
competition or horse races.
Horsing around on eBay and Amazon:
Amazon is a great place to search for Horse show party supplies, like the "day at the
races" plates above. You'll often find better prices than on eBay. It's really
the only place to shop for Kentucky Derby fun. What's more, Amazon sellers are
more professional and reliable (items must ship in two days).
You'll find eBay is a great place to search for your Horse show party for vintage
finds or items in bulk (like Horse show ribbons).
Here are some things to search:
- Doll house Horse trophy (these make excellent favors)
- Horse cookie cutters
- Blue ribbons
- Horse show ribbons (you'll find vintage and new selections)
- Horse show stickers (Creative
- Hands cool foam stickers) and embellishments for scrapbooks
- Horse Mardis Gras beads
When you search eBay, be sure to get cash back for all your eBay purchases by
shopping through a special portal that helps you save money on eBay and earn a
lifetime of residual income.
Horse show game ideas
If your horse-crazy kid lives and breathes horses, then it's off to the races to decide
which kind of Horse Show birthday party to have next year:
- A Kentucky Derby Party is a wacky way to show style with decorated derby
hats, funny glasses and fuzzy boa gloves. Anything goes from elegant tea parties
filled with southern hospitality to serious equestrian theme where guests place
bets on a recorded show. So get out the crystal, linens and china and bouquets
of red roses, Horse figurines, silver trophies and ribbons because it's off to the
races. We're willing to bet you'll have fun with this unique birthday party idea.
- A Breyer model horse show party is another fun way for your horse crazy kid to
share her passion for collecting model horses.
Horse Show party decoration ideas
- Horse shoes. Decorated horseshoes make festive balloon weights and nice
favors. Spray paint horseshoes silver or gold, then add gems, glitter and glue For
the finishing touch. This is a fun activity For your child before the party.
- Horse show ribbons. Find Horse show ribbons on eBay and place a special one
behind the chair of the birthday kid. They are approximately two feet long with a
decorative rosette at the top. We found several vintage and new Horse show
ribbons on eBay For $4.00- $10.00 in varying sizes.
Horse show favor ideas
- Dollhouse horse ribbons and trophies make great favors. You'll find a tiny blue
ribbon for just $1.00 and a horse trophy for $1.60 each. Look also on eBay. Here
is a quality pewter dollhouse trophy, right, available on Amazon.
- Search for horse scrapbook materials and buttons on eBay to accent your
invitations and thank you cards. Search for terms such as: horse-shoe,
horseshoe, horse shoe (yes, all three varieties will yield different results). You'll
also find a variety of horse stickers for favors and invitations. Pictured right is a
horse show board with removable stickers.
Activities for your Horse Show Party:
- Have a horse show of your own. Decorate horse figurines and hold a mini
competition with judging and prize ribbons and trophies. Klutz published My Very
Own Horse Book that not only makes a great gift, but provides a horse and
instructions for making a saddle, blanket and bridle. For the birthday girl, the
Horse Show activity kit, available on Amazon, is ideal and can serve as decoration
for the party.
- Run for the roses. Create a horseshoe Garland of Roses for your horse show party
by cutting a large horse shoe shape (12"-16") and affixing red roses from a craft
store (or creating rosettes from confetti paper). For inspiration or to buy one
