First you are going to need some beads, feathers, bells, etc. No glass beads for safety reasons. As long as they're plastic, they can be whatever size/shape/color you want! I got mine from Michael's.

You're going to need a few alligator clips. Also from Michael's. make sure they're not too big, so that you can hide them in your horse's mane. Mine are about an inch long. :)

Get some strong string. It has to be breakable though, in case your horse happens to get stuck on something. No elastic string!! Cut about 7 inches, depending on your horse's mane length.
