Modelling and general it-girling aside, Gigi and Bella Hadid have another, rather sporty hobby. Both girls grew up horse riding and still own and ride horses at their mother Yolanda Hadid’s farm in Pennsylvania (Bella was so good she almost made the equestrian at the Olympics in 2016 before pulling out due to Lyme disease, a disease she shares with her mother). And much like their own interest in fashion, it seems their horses too are stylish.
Bella Hadid uploaded a series of images of her beloved horse, Blue, wearing an all new custom outfit by designer Chrome Hearts. The model has worked with the brand in the past, doing a collaboration back in 2017, Chrome Hearts x Bella. She’s since worn the brand on repeat, most recently wearing a bandana on a trip to Mykonos with sisters Gigi and Alana. But the Hadid Chrome Hearts appreciation society has gone to the next level with the brand creating a bespoke saddle and leg wraps for Blue.
“Me n my beautiful man few days ago …. Fittttted”
The custom saddle was quilted in cream and featured a large black star with smaller gilded star in the centre. Around Blue’s legs, four leg wraps which also featured stars – albeit smaller iterations – a signature emblem of the edgy brand, which primarily does jewellery.
In her chic new get-up, the chocolate brown horse – with icy blue eyes just like Bella – certainly looks the part of model pony, and certainly makes the case for designer equine dressing.
