When you think of fashion, Bella Hadid may come to mind, but during Week 9 of WEF, she was known for being the “three ring queen.”

The model and equestrian, who last competed as a junior in 2013, according to USEF results, entered the show ring again to show in several adult divisions throughout the week. 

Hadid showed Larson, owned by Chad Keenum, in the Adult Amateur Hunters, Adult Amateur Equitation, and a couple of medal classes. She also showed her own Amidam in the Low Adult Amateur Jumpers, Adult Amateur Hunters, and the NHS Medal, in which she finished seventh.

Hadid was seen around the horse show shopping and socializing with others, even telling a young rider to have a great day. 

With 58 million followers on Instagram, Hadid is among the most conventionally famous riders in our sport today, alongside big names like Mary Kate Olsen, Kaley Cuoco, and Brandi Cyrus. Last year, The Rock was also spotted on horse show dad duty for his daughter. 

Hadid trains with Lucy Nyland-Elliot at InGate Farm. 

In 2020, Bella Hadid answered her 73 Questions for Vogue in the barn.
