Chrissy Teigen has taken up horse riding at her therapist's suggestion
The 'Lip Sync Battle' star - who has children Luna, four, and Miles, two, with husband John Legend, and tragically lost a baby five months into her pregnancy last year - was advised to find a hobby that allowed her to focus on herself and was excited to begin her "journey into the horse world" on Sunday (17.01.21)
21 January 2021
Chrissy tweeted a photo of a horse named Cosmo and wrote: "My therapist says I need something that I do for just me, as I have absolutely nothing currently lol. Today begins my journey into the horse world. I hope this dude likes me. He’s so handsome and appears lazy, I love."

But the 35-year-old beauty encountered a problem before she'd got anywhere near the animal, struggling to zip up her new knee-length riding boots.
She tweeted: "Holy s***. horse people: the boots! i always thought breaking in boots meant the foot part but does it mean the calf part because I’m dying over here.(sic)"
And in an accompanying video, she whispered: "What the f***. Oh, my god. This. What is this? Holy s***. Oh, my go."
She then followed it with a clip showing her on all fours as she tried to stretch out the leather, branding the boots "brutal".
She wrote: "Not even at the horse part yet lol. What the f*** who can fit in these.”
Next she shared a video of her mom, Vilailuck Teigen, using a massage machine to soften the leather, and promised to try some of the other suggestions made by her followers, including warming them with a hairdryer or buying a shorter boot.
Gigi Hadid was among those to offer tips.
She suggested: "Oil them (lots of it) then roll the calf up inward like a cinnamon roll, tie a shoelace around it and leave overnight.(sic)"
And it wasn't just the boots causing Chrissy problems because the Sports Illustrated model also shared a photo of herself with Luna, who was unimpressed to be wearing jeans with her pink cowboy boots.
Chrissy captioned her Instagram post: "First ride AND first jeans for Luna. She had an epic jean meltdown, really beautiful acting 10/10.(sic)"
She later shared videos on her Instagram Stories of all her family at the stables.
