Demi Lovato has been busy singing across Central and South America on her recent tour, but she took some time off to explore Mexico – on horseback!

Along with some friends, the singer hopped in the saddle Wednesday to take in the country’s sights.

Lovato “had a special connection with her horse,” wrote William Beaman, who documented much of the ride on Twitter.

At one point, the star went riding in a line with two of her friends. “We ride together we die together!!” Beaman Tweeted.
