Kelsea Ballerini is horsin' around.

The country star paid a visit to Keeneland during the Spring Race Meet ahead of the Kentucky Derby. The "This Feeling" singer was photographed petting the horses while wearing a spring-appropriate white dress with a yellow flower pattern. In another picture, Ballerini was all smiles next to the horse.

She was also photographed hanging out with friends, while watching the jockeys ride their racehorses. Her boyfriend Chase Stokes was seemingly not present at the event.

Ballerini also shared other photos and videos on Instagram from the Spring Race on Instagram, along with clips from her Kentucky concerts. She captioned the post, "LEXINGTON? MORE LIKE FLEXINGTON. Kidding but not, just had the most beautiful two days playing a show and hanging out with my 'if you go down I'm going down too' in her hometown."

She added, "Horses are magical. Mountain with a view is on the radio? Kenny and I sang you and tequila. Pugs are croissants but in dog form. Friends are everything."

The official Instagram account for Keeneland commented, "Please come back any time!" while Ballerini's boyfriend Stokes was amused by the caption. "You said flexington and called pug a croissant in the same caption. I…nvm just take it ❤️," he wrote.

Ballerini is currently on her North America tour, which ends on July 7. The singer also recently received two nominations for the 2023 Country Music Awards. She's up for Female Artist of the Year and Visual Media of the Year for single "Heartfirst."
