Supermodel Bella Hadid is dominating headlines once again with a mysterious new love interest. And this time, it looks as though Hadid is smitten with real-life cowboy Adan Banuelos. But who exactly is he?

Who is Adan Banuelos?

Banuelos is a Mexican-American equestrian who resides in Fort Worth, Texas. He is the son of Ascencion Banuelos, a trailblazer who made history by becoming the first Mexican-American ever to be honoured with an induction into the National Cutting Horse Association Hall of Fame. This award is dedicated to honour those individuals who have demonstrated their unwavering commitment to the discipline of working in this particular equestrian style.

Banuelos isn’t your run-of-the-mill equestrian, he’s a complete superstar in the realm of horse riding. The cowboy’s achievements speak volumes. In 2017, he earned a well-deserved spot in the prestigious National Cutting Horse Association Riders Hall of Fame, joining his dad and becoming one of the youngest inductees ever. Additionally, in 2020, he clinched victory at the NCHA Futurity Open Championship, further cementing his status as a top-notch talent.

Beyond his accolades as a performance horseman, Banuelos has also transitioned into a role where he specialises in training and showcasing cutting horses, as well as mentoring fellow riders.

Are Bella Hadid and Adan Banuelos dating?

Well, the exact details of this pair’s meeting are shrouded in mystery, but it’s worth noting that Hadid shares Banuelos’ passion for horses. The model has a background in horse riding, having grown up with a love for equestrian sports. Hadid even made a triumphant return to competitive equestrian after a hiatus caused by her battle with Lyme disease.

Given their shared love for horses, Hadid and Banuelos might have crossed paths in the competitive horse-riding circles. Either way, it’s safe to say that this was an unexpected pairing and netizens will be following the budding romance every step of the way.
