It's Been A New York Minute, So Here's Mary-Kate Olsen Riding Horses Competitively

A horse named Prem’ Dollar Boy, to be more specific.

When she’s not dodging John Stamos’ phone calls asking whether she might appear on “Fuller House,” Mary-Kate Olsen has apparently been building an illustrious career as a part-time equestrian.

Honestly, we’re not entirely convinced this isn’t some sort of “Our Lips Are Sealed” scenario where the twins have to infiltrate the elite world of horseback riding as part of some twisted witness protection plot.

According to W magazine, Mary-Kate has been participating in the Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton, New York, since 2013. On Tuesday, she reportedly competed in the show with four horses, hilariously named Prem’ Dollar Boy, Feu d’Amour, Hertog Van’t Merdehof and (our favorite) Virginia. 

The Hampton Classic is apparently a magnet for offspring of the rich and powerful, with the likes of Tabitha Broderick (daughter of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick), Eve Jobs (daughter of Steve Jobs), Georgina Bloomberg (daughter of Michael Bloomberg), Romy Lauer (daughter of Matt Lauer) and Jessica Springsteen (daughter of Bruce Springsteen) riding alongside the former actress. 

So far, Bloomberg seems to be the frontrunner among those celebrity spawn, having already won the $10,000 Royalton Farms Open Jumper Class this year. If only we knew what that meant.
