Horse senior pictures ideas!

I need ideas for senior pictures with my horse! Of course, the photographer will be able to help with a lot of it, but I still want some cool ideas to bring up. I also need ideas on what to wear (I have a bay horse) and where/what background they would look cool in. Thanks!

obviously not senior pictures, but pics our daughter had done last year. The photographer was good but some of the action pics he kinda was off on. Didn't catch the gates and angles the way we had in mind. Anyhow, some ideas.

Horses are scared of two things. Things that move and things that don't

My photographer was fantastic at suggesting the poses for my senior pics with my horse (and the pics without the horse, too!) He recommended a location of just beautiful green grass & trees, so there would be nothing busy in the background to detract from the overall look.

I chose to wear "street clothes" rather than anything equestrian, because it best represented me at the time - shorts, white blouse, dressy sandals. My mostly-white Paint wore her show halter and was groomed as if we were at a show. We didn't do any riding shots, as the focus of these pics is supposed to be the Senior, not the horse.

Several shots have me just standing by my horse or loving on her. My favorite shot was me sitting on the ground looking up at my horse, while she was reaching her head down to be close to me.

Have fun with it!

If you compete then maybe dress in yalls competition clothes? Me and charlie were "known" for always winning showmanship so my senior pics kind of centered around that

Palomine and shaggy like this.

*Insert something witty*

Most photographers will allow an outfit change. If it were me Id do a sundress and boots for one outfit and my typical jeans, boots and a nice shirt for the other.

As for poses, etc... Can you trailer somewhere or is it going to be in your back yard? Is there a spot that is special to you? I personally love water so I would want a creek or pond or something incorporated if it were me. My point being make it meaningful too.

Some ideas for poses: having your horse lay down and laying with them. Relaxing together in the field or during a sun set or sun rise. (can be difficult though)
Laying across his back while he grazes.
Shadows can make pretty cool pictures too
I personally like in the moment shots.

Shots where horse is curling head around you are cool to see.

And yes, take several outfits, and make sure they are ones that will not wrinkle, and that you have shoes for them.

Have different tack too as may want bridle or halter depending.

Horses make me a better person.

I plan on getting pictures taken with Henny for his first/my twentieth birthday sometime in April. I would recommend a nice halter and a show shank. I'm going to be using his leather halter that will have his custom bronc noseband on it and my leather show shank. The photographer I plan on using gives us unlimited time and unlimited clothes changes. I already have 3 dresses picked out and I'll be wearing my show jeans and a nice top as another set. I was going to do it out in a field somewhere with some nice grass and trees for a more natural setting. Heck, I may just walk him down to the park and take the pictures there. I'll have to see if the photographer can recommend any locations or anything.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

One of my senior pictures with my lease horse at the time. I wish I would have picked a better shirt but these were taken many years ago.
