Before You Do a Wedding Photo Shoot on Your Horse, Watch This

Posted by Paige Cerulli

While a wedding photo shoot on your horse might seem like the perfect way to capture memories, this bride's photo shoot didn't quite go as expected. 

Ahh, the horseback wedding photo shoot. It's a must-have on many horse-loving brides' wish lists. After all, horses are magical and elegant, and there's nothing more breathtaking than a bride in her wedding dress posed atop a beautiful horse. It's like something out of a fairy tale.

That is, unless your photo shoot goes like this bride's does. When you're trying so hard to have everything go perfectly on your special day, it's important to remember that things can go wrong with horses, and they can go wrong very quickly. Take a look.

If you want to do a horseback wedding photo shoot, but don't want it to turn out like the video above, there are a number of ways you can increase the chances of the shoot going well. First, start by preparing your horse well before the shoot. Even a bombproof horse may hesitate when you climb on him wearing a dress, so do lots of work with tarps and even a trial dress to prepare him for the experience.

It's also a good idea to enlist a team of experienced horse people to be your "crew" on the photo shoot day. These helpers can watch for signs that your horse is getting upset and can provide extra assistance from the ground.

Finally, consider holding your horse wedding shoot on a day after your actual wedding. This takes some of the pressure off, and it won't be so troublesome if your dress gets dirty during the process. You can choose a time and location when you and your horse are relaxed, increasing the chances that the shoot will go well and you'll get some wonderful pictures.
