"I have the opportunity to slow down and focus on things I haven't been able to in a long time because of the fast paced lifestyle in LA.

She Horseback Rides

Harper is a big fan of going horseback riding, and has shared several photos of herself hanging with horses on her Instagram page. She posted this photo of herself and some friends going for a trail ride up to the famous Hollywood sign.
