Now, she just shared an update on her journey as an equestrian, expressing just how happy she is to be back on the field with her favorite animal by sharing a picture of her riding her horse, and another close up of just her beautiful white horse Geppetto. 

"So happy to be back in the saddle again with Geppetto!"


It seems Melanie can do absolutely anything and everything, as she is also a certified Pilates and Barre instructor, something she does on the daily. 

Following in her famous mom's footsteps, she has also done some movie and TV roles such as "Dealin' with Idiots," "E! True Hollywood Story," and "The Courage to Love."


Aside from being an instructor, an actress, and an equestrian, Melanie also has a love for dancing, and recently even added modeling to her resume all thanks to her mom's new HSN Clothing Line campaign. 

It turns out, Melanie worked in the fashion industry for 10 years before becoming an instructor, and she was a natural as she modeled with her mom.

Vanessa Williams' children have different professions, but that's not a problem for the proud mom, as she always told them to dare to be different. Indeed, that's what they all chose to do.
