A while ago, as per Richardson’s Instagram, she had been on a vacation. Probably to the seaside, her pictures reflect peak elation when the waves hitting made her jump like a kid. Posting a throwback of that trip, an Instagram page named Sha’Carri Richardson FP has posted two pictures of her on a gorgeous equine. Captioned Queen, the FP recognized and acknowledged the real essence of Queen Sha’Carri. Equine therapy or staying in touch with horses has several health benefits. Jostled by the surrounding bucolic environs, she seemed to be fluttering in happiness akin to a child that’s found its favorite candy.

Since she was also in touch with the clear waters, her mental health is inarguably in check ahead of the biggest event of the year. What’s in the offing for her though?
