Mary-Kate Olsen stands tall in the saddle—but appears tiny compared to her husband! The twin star, 32, known for doing Full House and a clothing line with sister Ashley, is thoroughly enjoying horseback riding these days—with towering spouse Olivier Sarkozy cheering her on.

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Olsen competed at the equestrian Longines Global Champions Tour 2019 Madrid Day 1 at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. She was spotted yesterday, Friday, May 17, enjoying some time with French banker hubby Sarkozy, 49, after her ride. The two have been married since 2015.

Mary-Kate, known for slouching around while smoking cigarettes, shocked fans by jumping her horse Fatum over fences. Actually, Olsen has been competing in competitive show jumping for years and has built up a respectable reputation in the sport. She has been in love with horses since she fell for a pony named 4x4 on the set of a show she was working on when she was just 6 years old.

“I came back to the sport because I missed it every day that I wasn't riding,” she has said. “It was the hardest thing to leave and the hardest thing to come back to.” Olsen said she now rides horses on the weekend!
