Ian Somerhalder Goes Horseback Riding With “Amazing Woman” Nikki Reed: Picture

Riding into the sunset! Ian Somerhalder and girlfriend Nikki Reed went horseback riding in Atlanta on Tuesday, Oct. 28., during the hunk's break from filming The Vampire Diaries.

"A beautiful perfect Georgia afternoon decompressing from work with our big boy Eagle (who opted out of this photo), our little girl Millie (who you all haven't seen yet but here she is) & the one and only @iamnikkireed," Somerhalder, 35, captioned an Instagram pic of the couple on their horses.

"Photographed by my lovely sista Kat Graham aka @katgrahampics," he added of his TVD costar. "The simple beauty of the quiet countryside loving on my kids with these amazing women…Wow, love this. Needed this. So many amazing things happening with all of the projects in my life-thank you for so much love and support. Thank you."

Somerhalder and the Twilight actress, 26, have added to their animal family since Us broke news of their relationship in July. In addition to horses Eagle and Millie, they are also parents to an unnamed kitten as well as two dogs adopted before their romance began.

"Went to the animal shelter today to give some love to the babies living in cages who don't have homes and ended up adopting this little girl!" Reed captioned an Instagram pic of their new cat on Oct. 15. "What should we name her?"

The TVD star and Reed have plenty of time to play side by side with their adorable pets. As exclusively reported, the couple moved in together just three weeks after dating. Atlanta, where Somerhalder films the CW series, became the perfect location to settle down. An insider previously told Us that "[Nikki] goes to set every day."
