During part of the competition, she put a blue adornment on her prancing horse as it jumped across the dirt at the venue. 

She leapt the horse over several short log fences as onlookers stared on.

She placed third in that contest, a much better performance than back in 2019 when she was disqualified from a competition for an ‘error of course’ during one of her runs. 

The Full House star started riding horse at a very young age and her character Michelle from the hit show, who she played in conjunction with her twin Ashley, took up the hobby as well.  

‘Having horseback riding as an outlet was super important because it allowed me to have another life and outlet outside of work and school,’ she said in a biography on HITS LLC’s website. ‘I continued to ride through high school and stopped when I moved to New York.’

While she was a beloved child star, Mary-Kate left acting after her performance in the 2011 movie Beastly.
