Instagram It Girl, Model Extraordinaire, Equestrian Style Maven, Polo Player and Bonafide Horsewoman Zinta Braukis, aka @ZintaPolo, is what Instagram dreams are made of. Her visual collection of imagery and day-to-day glimpses into her off-duty model/on-duty equestrian lifestyle leaves our fingers weary from scrolling, our batteries drained, and our horse-feverish minds enthralled.
For those who already follow @ZintaPolo (pronounced ZIN-tah) on Instagram, you can recognize her squad of polo ponies in an instant. You know her as the polo playing California girl that can haul a full string of horses down the I-10 like nobody's business, as the on-trend beauty who commands fashion envy, the equestrian world over, and as the savvy marketer who is building her personal brand and garnering a considerably strong following via social media. Did you know that, as a child, @ZintaPolo wanted to be a professional show jumper, that her dream ranch location is Santa Ynez, Calif. and that she took a 4-month solo backpacking excursion through China, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Nepal? Although wonderfully transparent in sharing her own life, there is still so much about this intriguing young woman we simply do not know.
So, we are left wanting more and asking questions about career and passion balancing, style on and off the horse, and equestrian life trajectories.
