The 27-year-old model and 34-year-old Banuelos attended the American Performance Horse event on Friday, sporting a country-inspired ensemble. Wearing a sparkly black open-back shirt, a turquoise plus silver necklace with a Western theme, and a wide-rimmed black cowgirl hat, Hadid matched her partner, a horse rider, who was also sporting a cowboy cap in celebration of the occasion.

The American Performance Horseman, presented by Teton Ridge at Arlington’s Globe Life Field, made its premiere as an entirely novel competition that will be an element of the American Rodeo, an annual rodeo that combines competitions and entertainment. The website for the event states that there will be a variety of equestrian competitions, including reining, cutting, and reined cow horse, with participants competing for a $1 million prize fund.

Hadid and the distinguished Mexican-American equestrian Banuelos are relatively new to each other; their courtship was first made public in October 2023 when pictures of them embracing near Fort Worth, Texas, were released by TMZ.

They spent Valentine’s Day together last month. An Instagram Story photo of Banuelos enjoying a horse with Hadid standing on the gates next to him was posted by the model, who has a lengthy history of riding horses herself. “My valentine💌💋,” was her caption on the picture.

Hadid’s most recent public appearance also follows her lengthy hiatus from modeling to concentrate on her health. She not only directed the creative direction for the photo shoot, but she also appeared on four distinct covers of Perfect Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2024 issue in January.

For the magazine’s special sixth issue, Hadid dressed simply in black undies, hoop earrings, and a lot of blush, drawing influence from Blondie’s Debbie Harry. Perfect shared on Instagram that the inspiration for the look came from a photo of Harry playing in 1978 while donning a banner that she had taken off from a wall outside the stadium.

In August 2023, Hadid made the initial announcement of her departure from modeling. She claimed to be “finally healthy” in an Instagram post, following almost a decade of health setbacks that included more than 100 days of Lyme disease treatment, chronic illness, therapy for a co-infection, and over 15 years of hidden suffering.

The suffering little me would be thrilled with of the adult me for persevering and never giving to me👶🏼. In the opening line of her Instagram post, Hadid expressed her gratitude to her mother, Yolanda Hadid.

She added, “Thank you to my mommy for believing in me through everything, for always being there for me, and for preserving every one of my medical records.”

Hadid spoke up to PEOPLE in 2016 about the physical issues she had as a model.

She stated at the time that life frequently isn’t what it seems on the outside and that having your appearance be judged instead of your inner feelings is the most difficult aspect of this journey.
