Selena Gomez is enjoying horsing around with her very best friends in the weeks following her release from treatment.
On Wednesday evening, the singer, 26, saddled up and hit the hills for a sunset horseback riding session along with her pals Raquelle Stevens and Anna Collins. Exuding major western vibes, Gomez paired a sherpa patched tapestry-like coat with a pair of jeans, sneakers and her signature gold hoop earrings.
“I went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done,” she told InStyle‘s Laura Brown in her candid cover interview. “I had no phone, nothing, and I was scared. But it was amazing, and I learned a lot.”
“I was in the countryside and never did my hair… And it was hard, obviously,” Gomez continued. “But I knew what my heart was saying, and I thought, ‘OK, I think this has helped me become stronger for other people.'”
Gomez chose to undergo dialectical behavior therapy, a therapy method designed to help try to identify, and then change, negative thinking and behavioral patterns.
The singer has been open about her battle with lupus for several years, and first revealed in 2015 that she’d undergone chemotherapy to treat the disease. Lupus causes the immune system to attack its own organs and tissues and can affect the whole body.
