Miranda Lambert, Horse, Instagram


Back in the saddle and ready to ride y'all.

Newly single Miranda Lambert may love her country music, but she just might love her four-legged animal friends more.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that the "Over You" singer was spending some quality time with her beloved horses Tuesday afternoon in the wake of her divorce from Blake Shelton. In a new Instagram post, the star put on her riding gear and enjoyed some time with Sophie.

"Sophie hugs. Nothin' better!" she wrote on Instagram. "#Sofa #Gypsyvanners #Unicornsforever." 

Fans know all too well that the singer is passionate about animals. In addition to her horses, Lambert also rescued her fair share of dogs and even founded the MuttNation Foundation with her mom. But there's something about horses that is extra therapeutic.

"I love how big and beautiful they are, but also how sweet and loving they are at the same time," she recently shared with the Horse Channel. "I eventually want to get comfortable going faster, but right now I am just enjoying getting to know my horses better while riding them."

Perhaps we can assume animals are part of Lambert's healing process along with some good ole' tunes. Just a couple of weeks ago, Lambert enjoyed a girls' night with Shania Twain where she proclaimed "Music is Medicine."

"Shania Twain. Fringe Saddle. That's All," she wrote on Instagram from her seat at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. "#Nashville #GirlsNight #RockThisCountry #BadAss #MusicIsMedicine."
