Vote For Carson!

Emmy-winning television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer, and friend to many in the horse world, Carson Kressley is one of the 12 celebrity cast members on Season 13 of Dancing With The Stars.

The stars, the drama, the glamour and the glitter are back on ABC! Dancing with the Stars returns on Monday, September 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET) with a sensational two-hour season premiere. On Tuesday, September 20, there will be two hours of original programming, beginning with "Dancing with the Stars: Meet the Cast (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), followed by the premiere of Dancing with the Stars the Results Show (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET).

When Carson is not working, he can be found on one of his American Saddlebred show horses, with which he has achieved World Champion status. Carson is also a friend to many owners of Friesians, Hackneys and Morgan horses.

A strong supporter of many philanthropic causes, Carson is always involved with breed promotional efforts and a host of fund-raising activities. “Carson’s appearance on DWTS presents a perfect opportunity for the Saddlebred community to repay him for the uncounted times he has used his celebrity to promote the Saddlebred and help fund-raise for various organizations,” said Tolley Graves, Executive Director, American Saddlebred Museum. ”When called upon, Carson never disappoints.  He serves on boards, designs products, makes personal appearances, does signings, puts together and donates ‘experiences’ for fundraisers along with committing dollars to so many causes.

“Supporting Carson in this venture will be easy,” Tolley continued.  “It only requires texting and/or calling one night a week. We’ll all be watching anyway, so let’s join to support one of our breed’s best ambassadors! Doing so may give him an even taller soapbox from which to extol the virtues of our wonderful horse!”  

“Carson has been an avid supporter of our show’s silent auction,” said Suzy Lucine, Mid-Atlantic Morgan Horse Show Committee member. “He has donated fun, personal items to help raise funds for our horse show.”

There are different ways you can vote for Carson and his professional partner, Anna Trebunskaya:

1) Write down the phone number or text code that the host Tom Bergeron announces (it also appears on the screen right after your favorite couple finishes dancing). Record the information as soon as the host announces it because "Dancing with the Stars" voting begins during the show and not afterward like most other shows.

2) Dial the phone number as soon as possible anytime during the show or for up to 30 minutes after it ends. Wait until you hear an automated recording that states your vote has been cast before hanging up.

3) Open a blank text message according to your cell phone's instructions if you have an AT&T cell phone. Type the couple's text code into the blank text message screen and send to the text line number anytime during the show or up to 30 minutes afterward.

4) Go to the official "Dancing with the Stars" website over 30 minutes after the show is over, when the phone and text voting polls close. Click on your favorite couple's "Vote" button anytime before 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time the day after the show.
