Dec. 18 (UPI) — Selma Blair reunited with her beloved horse following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis this year.
The 46-year-old actress shared an emotional moment with her horse, Mr. Nibbles, on Sunday amid her struggle with the central nervous system disease.
Blair is unable to ride due to her symptoms but had the opportunity to sit on Mr. Nibbles’ back. She shared a photo of herself hugging her horse’s neck as she cried tears of joy.
“This happened. My magical unicorn, #mrnibbles, held my body while I broke open with gratitude,” the star captioned the post.
“I haven’t been able to ride for four months or more. I haven’t been able to get to him, so my saint of a trainer, @kjrides brought him to me,” she said. “It was a fairytale. My horse in my front yard, with more emotions than these words can hold.”
The Cruel Intentions star told fans she will eventually ride again.
“I will heal. I will ride. But until then I will hold onto this feeling and post pictures whenever we all need to believe people will move mountains and horses to help us heal,” she wrote.
Blair also posted a picture of herself with Mr. Nibbles and his trainer, Kelly Jennings.
“This woman. This horse. Thank you. #mrnibbles #kjrides #cellardoorequestrian and to my neighbors. Thank you for letting him graze. On your lawn. heaven on earth @cellardoorequestrian #momentsofbliss,” she wrote.
Blair went public about her multiple sclerosis in October after being diagnosed in August. She promised to do her “best” in life as she struggles with the disease.
“I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself,” the star said.
