Mark Wahlberg: The Ultimate Horse Show Dad

This star has a new funky bunch — that of horse show parents.

Okay, so I’m not sure if it’s the ’80s kid in me, my affinity for Paul Thomas Anderson, or the mere fact that I will always have a soft spot for non-horsey parents who support their equestrian kids’ endeavors (probably some combination thereof), but I am totally here for Marky Mark’s Mark Wahlberg’s newest role as a horse show dad. Hearing him talk about his daughter’s commitment to riding and progression from trotting on a pony to showing in Wellington is awesome. The pride is evident, and you can tell that Grace appreciates the support.

From interviews to his own Facebook posts, Wahlberg clearly has embraced the persona of a horse show dad — and we can’t wait to see more of it!

Happy Wednesday, Horse Nation. Go riding!
