The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco sips wine after three-hour horse riding session following Golden Globe nomination

KALEY Cuoco kicked back with a glass of wine after a three-hour horse riding session at the weekend.

The Big Bang Theory star – who is married to equestrian Karl Cook – celebrated her Golden Globe nomination for The Flight Attendant with a day of horse riding near her home in Calabasas.

Kaley looked every inch the pro equestrian in jodhpurs, riding boots, a hat and a simple chambray shirt.

The 35-year-old actress rode three horses around the course and expertly jumped fences with them.

After her mammoth session, the star sat down with a friend to share a bottle of wine.

Wrapped up in a black puffa jacket, Kaley chatted and laughed with her pal during the leisurely catch-up.

This is the first time the Hollywood actress has been pictured since she scored a Golden Globe nomination for her turn in HBO series, The Flight Attendant.

She broke down in tears when she learned she was up for Best Actress in a TV Musical or Comedy, after years of being snubbed from awards.

Kaley shared a video of her emotional reaction to the news on her Instagram page earlier this month.

She was seen on her bed listening out for the nominees and started sobbing after realizing her name had been called, yelling "Oh my God!"

Kaley starred in The Big Bang Theory for 12 years without a single Golden Globe award or nomination, despite the accolades being received by some of her CBS show costars.

Things have now turned around for the star, as her latest HBO Max offering is also up for an award in the category of Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical.

Kaley, who is also an executive producer on the show, plays Cassie Bowden, an air hostess with an alcohol problem who wakes up in a Bangkok hotel room with a dead body next to her.

The Flight Attendant was renewed in December and given the go ahead for a second season.

Kaley will face off with Lily Collins (Emily in Paris), Elle Fanning (The Great), Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek), and Jane Levy (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) in the Best Actress in a TV Musical or Comedy category.

Meanwhile, the actress' love of horse-riding was no doubt fueled by her relationship with equestrian Karl Cook, who she married in 2018.

Karl, 30, is a pro horse rider who often takes part in competitions around the US.

His father, Scott Cook, is a billionaire businessman and Karl himself is said to be worth about $100million.

Kaley jokingly called out her husband last year for not thanking her after he won a tournament.

She quipped, "You didn't thank your wife", after Karl shared a long post in which he gave his gratitude for his "team".

The couple, who met at a horse show in 2016, took a big step by finally moving in together in April last year, two years after getting married.

The star had left fans baffled when she revealed they were living apart while they built their dream house in Los Angeles.

She explained in March last year that even though their house was finished, Karl was waiting to move in with her as she was filming The Flight Attendant in New York at the time.

Kaley – who is best known for playing Penny on the popular CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory – was previously married to Ryan Sweeting from 2013 until 2016.
