"Empower Yourself. Empower Others."

Hello! My name is Krystal Kelly. I've been solo traveling since 2010 as an equestrian professional and adventuress.

Although I started my travels working with horses, it led me to some crazy countries! I lived in Egypt during the Revolution and I lived in India for TWO YEARS! I also worked in Bhutan, Belgium, Italy, Romania & I rode 1000 kilometers on semi-wild Mongolian horses across the Mongolian steppes. In 2016 I drove a car from England to Mongolia SOLO and met my German husband in Azerbaijan along the way! Now based in England, I've taught him to ride horses and sometimes I even bring him along on my travel adventures...

Working with horses around the globe has given me the opportunity to share my passion with women who are often not able to to have these opportunities due to the culture restrictions. By riding and working with horses in male dominated countries, I proved that you don't have to be a man to ride!

The equestrian sport is the ONLY sport in the Olympics where men and women compete equally.

Horse Whisperer

I left the USA in 2010. My slow travels as an Expat abroad working with horses has taken me to some pretty crazy countries. If not for horses I never would have been able to travel as far and as long as I have been. I am the only FEI Level II Coach from America and I travel often for clinics and to train horses and riders for showjumping, dressage, polo and even how to survive riding in Mongolia! I organize a few equestrian expeditions in various countries. Check out the ADVENTURES page to join our next trip!

I represent several opportunities for companies wishing to promote their travel, fashion or equine brand through my blogs, videos and social media influence. I also fundraise for charity, but without the help of sponsors these expeditions would never be possible!
