how ro make a horse head mask?

I need a 3-d horse head that stays on because the person has to dance in it and see where she is going

I would make it out of paper mache (papier mache). You can use a baseball cap or a bicycle helmet as the base of the form. Use the retaining straps or add scarf-like sides that you can tie around your neck. Search for images from the production of Disneys "The Lion King" to see how they make the animal masks. The dancer's head is actually exposed under the neck of the animal. Makeup helps it blend in. I guess it would get really hot and you couldn't see out of peepholes for the eyes on a conventional mask. Good luck.
