Who’s ready to ride your horse til you can’t no more this Halloween? We could not ignore the biggest song of the year—Old Town Road—and their amazing get-ups when we were making these hoodie costumes for our friends at Primary.com. While cowboys don’t normally wear hoodies, these cozy zip hoodies from Primary.com will keep your trick-or-treaters nice and warm.

If your kids have been relentlessly singing this song all summer long, maybe it’s time to give them the full-on look? Just add a hat, a guitar, or a horse and they will be ready to go!
