    Chrissy Teigen Took Up Horse Riding At Her Therapist's Suggestion, And It's Very Wholesome

    "Today begins my journey into the horse world."

    Of all the things you might expect model, entrepreneur, and all-round gem Chrissy Teigen to do next, you might not expect this one.

    I mean, you might expect it from the headline, but still.

    Yes: Chrissy is becoming a horse person.

    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

    By which I mean a person who's into horses, not some weird Bojack-esque figure.

    After her therapist suggested she take up something just for her, we got to see Chrissy's journey with the horse, Cosmo.

    @danreilly11 Cosmo! Like Cosmo Kramer, I hope (he isn’t mine)

    Straight from the horse's mouth, some might say.

    However, before we got to the horse, it seemed like the boots were neigh comfortable.

    holy shit. 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

    "I can feel my heart beating inside my boot," she added in an Instagram story.

    She prepared an apple for Cosmo.

    Even Luna got involved: "First ride AND first jeans for Luna. She had an epic jean meltdown, really beautiful acting 10/10."

    Before long, it was horse o'clock.

    John Legend was there.

    And, all in all, it seemed like a great time.

    This isn't the first time Chrissy has gotten candid about her mental health — in November, she said that she was in a, "bit of a grief depression hole" following the loss of her son, Jack.

    And, in case you didn't know, working with horses can actually be beneficial for your mental health!
