Julie Veloo is the Vice President of the Veloo Foundation and Gobi Gallop Chief. The Gobi Gallop is held every June and consists of 700 km in 10 days of riding! It is the longest annual charity horseback ride on the planet and the main fundraiser for Veloo Foundation's children of the Peak Sanctuary Project. Julie only learned to ride 6 years ago when she moved to Mongolia, this is when she started the Gobi Gallop to help the children in the Garbage Hills. Hear Julie's story on the #HorseHour Podcast.
