Over the years, we’ve seen horses in different movies and television shows. And the most recent remarkable appearance of a horse on-screen is in the teaser of the highly anticipated Kapamilya teleserye A Family Affair, in which its sole leading lady Ivana Alawi is spotted horseback riding by the seashore while cladded in sexy swimwear.
But it’s not only the instance when we saw her do so as she also gave us a peek of one of her horseback riding sessions at one of their filming locations in Masbate in one of her recent vlogs. And we’re surely going to see more of that once it begins on May 30!
Aside from Ivana, there are also other astig Kapamilya actresses who tried horseback riding either for a project or for leisure. Find out who they are in this Kapamilya Snaps feature!
Janella Salvador rode a horse as Emma in the 2019 thriller The Killer Bride and a video of her horseback riding training was uploaded on the official YouTube channel of ABS-CBN Entertainment. Her ever-supportive mom Jenine Desiderio, meanwhile, shared a throwback photo of her riding a horse as a young girl in 2002 and wrote in the captions, “You’ve been preparing for this role for that long”.
As she portrayed the younger version of the fierce and tough haciendera Alba in the 2018 soap opera Precious Hearts Romances Presents Los Bastardos, Roxanne Barcelo had to learn how to ride a horse. And we’re able to witness how she nailed the horseback riding scene in the beginning of the first episode.
Yassi Pressman is apparently the kind who’s always game to try out different things. And she’s able to experience a lot of new activities through her stint in the action drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as its former leading lady Alyana, which include riding a horse.
The same goes for Angel Locsin who enthusiastically underwent training in riding a horse for the 2008 Star Cinema flick “Love Me Again”, which she top-billed opposite leading man Piolo Pascual. And she seemingly got the hang of it as she was spotted unleashing the inner equestrienne in her by riding a horse during her trip to New Zealand in 2017.
While the above-mentioned actresses learned horseback riding for the roles they were going to portray, the following female stars did so for leisure.
First off is certified adventure-junkie Kim Chiu, who was seen riding a horse in her trip to Balesin Island in 2019. The It’s Showtime host truly enjoyed doing it as seen on the video she posted on IG, which she captioned, “Trust and Let Go”.
Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo is seemingly enjoying her blissful and quiet life with husband Matteo Guidicelli. And we’re able to see it in the sets of photos that he posted on social media, such as when they went on a nature trip and rode horses in Tanay, Rizal early this year. Her glowing face and wide smile were proof enough that she indeed had fun.
Those who have been following Sarah Lahbati know that she lives an active lifestyle and often shares these experiences with her family. And in the past two years, the actress would go horseback riding to celebrate her birthday.
Yam Concepcion is also seemingly the type who would love to take on challenging activities, and one of those is riding a horse. Whether you believe it or not, she has actually joined the fun Rodeo Festival in Masbate as seen in an undated photo we’re able to retrieve. She’s also able to try it again alongside her FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano co-stars Lito Lapid, Mark Lapid, and Coco Martin.
Are these Kapamilya stars able to convince you to try out horseback riding on your next trip? Or were you able to already try it, Kapamilya?
