15,000km, 11 time zones and eight countries: rider to take on epic around the world trek

A man who learnt to ride only two years ago will take on an epic journey around the world journey on horses currently living wild in the woods of Siberia.

Hertfordshire-based Nikita Gretsi, 21, will begin “The Last Great Journey” in Magadan, Russia, and will ride across Eurasia – covering 15,000km, 11 time zones and eight countries – to London. From there, he plans to ride a further 6,000km across north America, plus another part of Russia, to finish.

Nikita, who is of Russian, Ukranian, Estonian and Uzbek heritage, told H&H he came up with the idea to ride across Eurasia in 2019 – having never ridden a horse before.
