Martha Stewart may be making history as the oldest cover model for the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, but did you know she’s an avid horsewoman? Yep, you read that right! The iconic lifestyle businesswoman is a big fan of horses and has had many farm animals over the years.

She shared on her website, “In Bedford, my menagerie has evolved a bit. Beautiful, friendly Friesian horses became the focal point of the farm life, drawing carriages along dirt roads and offering big, comfortable “seats” to my friends and me for long weekend rides along the many miles of trails preserved by the Bedford Riding Lanes Association.”

A longtime horse lover, Martha’s horse Rinze has been part of her barn for over 18 years!

Is there anything quite like a trail ride in the crisp fall air?

Friesians are a unique breed in the United States. These two were flown in from Holland! Martha wrote all about their journey on her blog.

Such an idyllic location – her animals sure live the life!

Can’t forget her donkeys! Martha previously revealed that she was was given two young Sicilian miniature donkeys, Clive and Rufus, when she moved to Bedford.
