This Is Why Bella Hadid's Equestrian-Inspired Shoot Has Everyone Talking
You already know her as an ubertalented model, but Bella Hadid has another not-so-secret talent: horseback riding. Bella scored a spot in Porter magazine's October issue, bringing together her two great talents in an equestrian-inspired shoot that will leave you craving a turn on the trails yourself.
The 18-year-old posed alongside a beautiful horse, wearing soft silk, rich tweed, and of course riding boots. She also shared that she's training to ride in the 2016 Olympics — an impressive goal to be sure. She told the magazine:
"My devotion stemmed from my mom's love of horses. I have been riding since I could walk and the fact that my mom knew everything about horses really helped my passion grow... You know how every model is like, 'I do yoga.' Well, I find horses have the same effect. You have to put your ego aside and concentrate on making the horse do the things you want it to do, and move in the way you want it to move."
