Will your horse give you away?

Horse & Hound - - Newsinsider -

DO you dream of rid­ing your horse to your wed­ding, or per­haps hav­ing them as a guest at your re­cep­tion to fea­ture in the cel­e­bra­tions and pho­to­graphs? Well, you are not alone.

A re­cent sur­vey by the Blue Cross found that one in 10 Brits give their pet a cen­tral role in their big day. Of th­ese, al­most a quar­ter chose their horse.

H&H knows how im­por­tant it is for some own­ers to have their equine com­pan­ion with them.

Over the years many read­ers have shared tales, photos and videos of their horses tak­ing cen­tre stage at their nup­tials, from serv­ing as ring bear­ers to en­joy­ing a pre- or post-vow gal­lop.

“I couldn’t imag­ine our big day with­out a horse — or two,” said H&H’s Rachael Turner (pic­tured).

“Thank­fully Mary and Blue were very well be­haved and I man­aged to avoid get­ting trod­den or slob­bered on!”

The re­search found that more than a quar­ter in­cluded their pet be­cause it helped them to re­main calm on the day.

A huge 92% said they wanted to walk down the aisle with their pet by their side — although H&H rec­om­mends check­ing the size of the aisle, and your horse, first.

Horses are a pop­u­lar ad­di­tion to the guest list at wed­dings
