Kaley Cuoco Fought Darth Vader at a Charity Competition

Kaley Cuoco left her cares behind to duel one of cinema’s greatest villains.

Newly-single Kaley isn’t letting the tabloid headlines get her down. Despite her recent breakup with husband Ryan Sweeting for reasons some are attributing to his supposed pill addiction, Cuoco got back on the horse (literally) to benefit charity.

Cuoco made an appearance at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles on Saturday (Oct. 3) to compete in the Pro-Am Style & Competition for Charity equestrian event. She brought along her friend Tracy Wade (who played Vader) along with a slew of other friends dressed in Star Wars attire.

Luckily, it all paid off! Kaley and Tracy were named the winners of the competition, benefitting the organization Ride On which provides therapeutic horseback riding opportunities for those with physical and cognitive disabilities.
