Lady Gaga is many things: popstar, songwriter, actress, humanitarian, and also an avid animal lover. She is the proud owner of three French bulldog pups and also an Arabian horse named Arabella, as well as a few other horses.

For her recent portrayal as Ally in the remake A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga (birth name Stefani Germanotta) has been making the rounds at award shows and has received high praise for her stellar performance as lead actress in the film. After winning the award for Best Song “Shallow” as well as Best Actress for her performance this past Sunday at the Critics’ Choice Awards, the celebration was short lived for the entertainer as she received devastating news that her beloved mare was dying:

“I am so honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening. My heart is exploding with pride. But it saddens me to say that just after the show I learned that my dear angel of a horse, Arabella, is dying,” Gaga wrote in an Instagram post that included a photo of her riding the horse from her “Vanity Fair Italy” shoot.

“I am rushing to her now to say goodbye. Her name means ‘yield to prayer. She is and was a beautiful horse. Our souls and spirits were one. When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared.”

Gaga was extremely attached to her Arabian horse, often sharing photos of her on social media, letting her star shine in photoshoots, and praising her when given the opportunity.

“She will forever be a part of me. I am so very sad. But I wish for your pain to end, and the gates of heaven to open for you. I love you,” Gaga said in her Instagram post just yesterday.

For years, Lady Gaga has been passionate about her love of horses, specifically that of her sweet Arabella:

“While out there [in California], I developed a special connection to horses. It began when my record label gave me a horse for my birthday: an Arabian mare named Arabella. I had never taken a horse-riding lesson. I literally did not know how to ride a horse. But I just grabbed her by the mane and rode her bareback,” she shared with  V magazine back in August of 2017.

Lady Gaga credits Arabella for showing her the magical connection that horses and humans can share, and one thing is certain, this is a horse that was deeply cared for and loved, and will truly be missed. If you’d like to follow Lady Gaga on social media, you can find her @LadyGaga on Instagram.

I’m so very sorry about your losing your horse, Arabella. I’m sure you will treasure the time you had with her. I, myself, haven’t been as blessed to own my own horse, but have had a love affair with them since I was a young girl…many years ago! Thanks to my dad, who introduced me to horseback riding, all those years ago. My heart goes out to you
