Jessica poses on horseback after overcoming 'lifelong fear of horses'

Jessica Simpson posed on horseback in a heartwarming snap she posted to her Instagram page on Thursday.

The 40-year-old singing star wore a pair of large shades and warded off the rays with a cowgirl hat.

Her post was a plug for her new virtual essay Take The Lead in which she reflected on how she overcame a ‘lifelong fear of horses.’

Jessica credited her newfound courage to her children — she shares Maxwell, eight, Ace, seven, and Birdie, two, with her second husband Eric Johnson. 

‘I’ve learned that writing is the best way to understand myself. Confronting honest questions, emotions, insecurities, fears and revelations holds me strong in my purpose,’ she wrote in her caption.

‘A little over a year ago I released my memoir, Open Book. It was anchored by the journal entries I had kept all the way from childhood to the woman I have now become,’ Jessica pointed out.

‘Today I am humbled to share my reflections from over the past year in my Amazon Original Stories essay, TAKE THE LEAD, along with an audio version I narrated,’ wrote the proud mother of three.

Go green in Gucci like Jessica Simpson

<div class="fff-inline-image-container fff-orig-product"

data-main-product-id=»»>

She's not just famous for wearing Daisy Dukes guys — Jessica Simpson knows how to put on an elegant front, too.

The singer turned designer looked fashion forward as she posed with her family, and opted for a green dress by Gucci for the sweet snap.

Jessica's dress features contrasting white piping and a belted waist with Gucci's signature monogramming, and we love the flippy shift shape.

Jessica's dress is ideal to team with trainers or smart courts, and you can shop it for yourself with a click right.
