‘This was the most amazing experience in so many ways. In my email to Kate asking about this trip, I said, ‘I want to be challenged emotionally, physically and mentally.’ If I was to leave my husband, kids, business, etc to fly to the other side of the world, it had to be worth it. Well, worth it was! I could never have imagined one trip could give me so much. Words fail to describe the magic that this remote final frontier contains. There is something extraordinary powerful about removing yourself from this crazy modern world where we are all juggling so many balls and going somewhere no one can contact you, riding to places where very few have been. The horses were nothing short of amazing and our hosts Jakob and Daisy were the perfect team. The whole experience from start to finish was life altering. To ride a horse to the edge of the earth where the mountains meet the sky is something I will never forget. Climbing 2,000 meters above sea level under the watchful eye of a gliding condor with a wingspan of over 3 metres is extremely humbling. This is a journey I won’t forget. The only negative is that it is highly addictive – my new life goal is to trek the most remote parts of the globe on horseback.’
