Planning On Horse-Riding To Your Wedding?

Bride_on_horse_1Alot of people have romantic dreams of riding up to the wedding on a stunning white charger or, failing that, Black Beauty, without really thinking about the logistics of not only getting a horse but their own competency in the saddle.

Firstly, I would recommend don’t do it! No, really, that is my first suggestion. Think of it this way 1. It is a horse, horses do weird things at unfortunate moments like poop or run away 2. You might just possibly be wearing a white dress and horses do not care about keeping things like white dresses clean 3. You can’t ride

It doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom if you’ve really got your heart set on that Knights and Maidens on Big Horses type wedding…

Firstly, go and have some lessons. See if you actually like riding. You can find riding stables by looking through your local yellow pages, doing an internet search or visiting a site like The British Horse Society.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll need to check the route to the church or other venue. Is it safe for horses?

Ok, so you’re doing it! Do consider the weather though. Riding to the location is really only feasible in the summer months in Britain.

Also think about how you will ride. Sitting astride just isn’t practical in a dress so you will possibly have to ride sidesaddle. Can you get lessons for this?

And now the horse. Brides and Grooms could consider a white horse from Wedding Horses whom advertise themselves as Asian Wedding Horse specialists. You could also try asking your stables if they would loan and escort you a horse or check the classifieds of wedding magazines.

And my top tip (after don’t do it!) is if you really must have a horse as part of the day, then chose a pair that pull a carriage!

    The English weather, a traditional topic of conversation was very unfriendly at Newcastle Racecourse, one of the largest UK wedding venues a short time ago. The security guards were bent double to avoid being blown off their feet, and horizontal sheets of rain blew across the reception grounds.
    Special arrangements were needed and were capably supplied by The Newcastle racecourse managers. A Pagoda on a platform with 4 steps leading up to it, was constructed outside the marquis and I led The White Wedding Horse up the steps and onto the platform, where the Asian Groom mountedand was videographed by the expert Asian wedding videographers.
