seeing the world from the saddle, one country at a time
Aired May 31, 2019
Eight years ago, social media phenom Yulia Frolova set a personal goal for herself: to ride in every country. So far, she’s at 45 countries… and counting!
Whether it’s in the desert, the deepest snow, or on her way to an audience with the Pope, Yulia is most in her element when she’s traveling the world… and seeing it from the back of a horse.
So far, she’s ridden in Armenia, Jordan, Luxembourg, Russia, Austria, the US, Turkey, and Latvia, just to name a few. That visit with the Pope? Yulia joined an equestrian pilgrimage that sees 450 equestrians ride to the Holy City for an audience with his Holiness.
When at home in Bahrain, Yulia rides dressage on her off-the-track Thoroughbred. But she makes it a point to try other disciplines, including Western, playing polo, and Spain’s Doma Vaquera. She’s even tried stunt riding.
Yulia blogs about her travels through her EquiGeo website and Instagram page.
