About the Vlog
Riding horses in every country imaginable just might be among every equestrian’s wildest dreams. But for Equestrian Adventuresses, this dream is a regular reality.
Meet Krystal Kelly, a California girl who became an FEI Coach and left the USA in 2010 to travel to every single country — on horseback!

Equestrian Adventuresses (EQA) isn’t just a channel, it’s a movement. It’s an international cohort of women who want to explore the world with horses.
- Krystal: On a quest to visit every country in the world, Krystal has visited over 60 countries and worked in over 20 countries on 6 continents as a rider, trainer, FEI II Coach, clinician, and club manager. She rides many disciplines, including endurance, trail, polo, and show jumping!
- Christian: Krystal’s husband and partner-in-crime in all things horse traveling, online business, and adventure! Christian learned to ride after meeting Krystal, but based on his horse skills, we can’t tell he hasn’t been riding his whole life!
- Lilly & “Q”: Krystal and Christian’s trusty steeds who have traveled to many of the same locations and carried them–in Ireland’s case–the entire span of the country. Lilly and Q are learning along the way, just as Krystal and Christian are, but seem to take everything in stride (literally and figuratively, ha).
- Local Guides: The Equestrian Adventuresses know better than most that trusting the experts is crucial, especially when riding horses in a new region. You don’t have to watch too many videos to see just how many kind equestrians worldwide are willing to help guide Krystal, Christian, and fellow adventuresses around the world in their equestrian endeavors.
- Fellow Adventuresses: EQA also features videos of fellow adventuresses who do channel takeovers to chronicle their experience with horses in another part of the world.
