Today we virtually visit a very special country in Central Asia: Kyrgyzstan. Situated at the crossroads of the Silk Road and squeezed between ancient empires, it boasts of a fascinating horse culture. Helene from France has made Kyrgyzstan her home and has lived there for more than 20 years, owning around 50 horses. She helped Ashley and her partner organise a 3-month ride across the country. Both women are joining me in today’s podcast episode to talk about their experiences of living and riding in Kyrgyzstan.
