Reader Photo Challenge: 22 Horses Ready for the Holidays

Because the most wonderful time of the year includes horses, of course!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — that’s right it’s the holiday season and we wanted to see your horses in their finest holiday apparel! You, readers, delivered and we rounded up 22 photos of your horses dressed in their festive best! (Also, reminder: please, please, please when you share your photos, make sure you include a photo credit even if you’re the photographer, if you want your photo to have a shot at being chosen.)
