Sometimes the romantic notion of a horse wedding comes up against the reality of including an animal with its own opinion into your ceremony. What bride doesn’t want to make a show-stopping entrance on her big day? And, as a horse lover, what better way to do that than to make your appearance on your dashing charger! Of course, as the bride in the featured photo found out, the horse may not always have read the script.
I’ve only been to one wedding that featured the bride and groom on horseback (it was a hunt wedding) and those horses were quite well behaved. In fact, we were all on horseback as we witnessed the ceremony and then, Taly Ho! We were off. I can still remember the first fence, which was right after we left the proceedings and caught a lot of airtime. Yipee!
Here are a few brides who might have wished they had worn helmets with their wedding gowns.
