It's a far cry from being on the set of The Big Bang Theory, but Kaley Cuoco appears to be right at home in a saddle.

The actress participated in a horse-jumping competition in Santa Barbara, Calif., over the weekend.

And while she's always been a proud equestrian, this marks one of the first times we've seen the newly engaged star vying for a blue ribbon.

Just after the special event she tweeted a snapshot of herself on her horse, named Thor.

"Pure joy," she captioned the image.

Cuoco looked extremely focused and was dressed in full uniform—white riding pants, navy blazer and a matching helmet.

The blond beauty has been practicing for the big day and snapping shots on Instagram to document her hard work.

About a month ago, she shared a photo posing with Thor and wrote, "Spending the afternoon with the guy J #thor #justhorsinaround"

Between a hit TV show and horseback riding competitions, it's not surprise that Cuoco needs to put wedding planning on the back burner.

She told reporters at L.A.'s Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic that she and fiancé Ryan Sweeting "are too busy to wedding plan."

She added that she's feeling "excited" and "on top of the world" since the 26-year-old tennis pro proposed late last month.

"We're so happy," she gushed.
