Default Dressember Photoshoot with Tessa

My mom came out and did a photoshoot with Tessa and I! I think they turned out really well, if I do say so myself. The reason behind the photoshoot is that I wanted to get some pictures for Dressember. I have been participating in Dressember 2016, which is where women all around the world are wearing a dress every day of December to raise money through donations to help stop human trafficking. I was hesitant about wearing a dress every day, but it was worth it. It was for a good cause and the month's nearly over now! Well, part of Dressember is #youcandoanythinginadress So I rode Tess Mess to prove that you can ride horse in a dress! It was a lot harder than pants but can be done

Anyways, thought I'd share a few of these pictures. I was severely limited with what I shared with you since I don't want pictures of my face online. And that takes out all my favorite pics from the photoshoot. We got some really cool ones! But these are the only ones I feel comfortable sharing, so enjoy!



Horsie hugs are the best hugs


Horsie kisses are pretty darn great too! Tess also gave me a great big kiss on the face, but can't show that pic to you since, well, you can see my face haha.


I love this one...it feels so dramatic


And the only riding picture where you can't see my face. I was able to trot bareback- in a dress- where the snow was plowed but still safe to ride on. This picture was in deeper snow so I only walked.

Katie, those are great photos! I absolutely love them, the way you and Tessa interact is lovely. Also, I like the way your hair is curled

I understand not wanting to post photos of your face online, I don't either Being a secret agent is tough, huh?

I had no idea about Dressember, that's a very cool idea. I love wearing dresses, and adore the idea of "You can do anything in a dress".

Thanks so much for sharing!

Dressember is a great idea, beautiful pictures and Tessa is a beautiful horse. I used to ride a lot many years ago and your pictures brought back fond memories of a horse named Ginger that I used to ride.

Beautiful pics Katie . Dressember sounds like a great thing to do. I am a woman who never ever EVER wears dresses, so I'd have to buy one and wear it everyday lol. I think I still have some old skirts hanging in the closet . I don't show my face online either.

Tessa is gorgeous. Is she considered a pony? I'm not too familiar with horses, but it seems when I've seen full size horses in person, they're absolutely gigantic to me (I'm not used to large animals). Tessa looks a bit smaller.

Oh, I'm so glad! What kind of horse was Ginger?

Thank you for taking a look at them! And I would be in the same boat as you, but since I go to church for 2 services every Sunday, I've acquired a fairly broad range of dresses and skirts. It also helps that my mom gives her old ones to me because she "thinks they look better on me." I'm not complaining

And thank you, I think she is too Haha so here is where it gets complicated. There are breeds that are actual ponies (i.e. Chincoteague Pony). But then there are horses that can also be considered ponies as well. If a horse is below 14.2 hands, it would be considered a pony. Tessa is an American Paint Horse and stands at 14.3, so she's just barely considered a horse. She is a smaller horse but makes up for it in personality There are also horses at my stable that are 17 hands

Thank you for explaining basic differences of a horse or pony. I remember seeing larger horses at my county fair and thinking wow they're huge.

I'm fortunate that at my church, while there are some who insist on dressing traditionally, other members wear jeans. I just say that if some people dress casual then I will too!
