Circus - Other Costume

Circus - Other Costume:

This class is open to all circus or other types of equine costumes not previously listed on the current class list.

All costumes are required to have a cinch or surgingle. Exception is any costume that is just a headstall or neckpiece or is intended to be ridden bareback.


Circus costumes may be of any era and may be inside or outside of the Bigtop. Other ideas may be for any Circus parade other than a circus harness entry which should go into the harness section.
