Synopsis: Krystal, EQA Founder, has a love of horses and travel which led her to work abroad in many “male dominated countries.” She spent years trying to share with others that the equestrian sport is the ONLY sport in the Olympics where men and women compete equally.

“The first time I went to Bhutan,” she shares, “I had to train the guy that would be living with and caring for the horses. He didn’t speak any English but it was my job to work with him and teach him everything I could in a short amount of time. His family lives in a house near the “stables” and his children are growing up around horses. They will be the first generation in Bhutan which has been raised around people riding horses. That’s because no one in Bhutan rides horses, our program was the first and only one in the country. Watching the girl and boy playing with the tack after we had finished riding for 6 days in the mountains made me feel very hopeful for the future of horseback riding in this magical country. Personally? I am rooting for the girl…”
