Riding Around The Globe
Create TV features a variety of lifestyle programs that reach over 82% of US households and they will be broadcasting Equitrekking on Wednesdays and Sundays at 9:30am, 3:30pm and 9:30pm ET. The fifth season of Equitrekking features thirteen half hour, high definition episodes from a variety of locations including Uruguay, Turkey’s Coast, Jordan, Great National Parks, Great American Ranches, Vermont, the Carolinas, Colorado and Spain.
Appreciating Nature on Horseback
In each episode of this eco-friendly travel series, Darley meets local people to experience history, adventure and culture both in and out of the saddle. Highlights include gaucho life, rural estancias and the coastal cities of Montevideo and Punta del Este in Uruguay. On Turkey’s scenic Mediterranean Coast, Darley hikes the chilly waters of Saklikent Gorge and horseback rides through the abandoned ghost city of Kayaköy, before discovering Istanbul and Cappadocia. Alberta brings viewers on two different pack trips into Banff National Park and Kananaskis, riding to high altitudes and camping in the Canadian Rockies. Viewers then travel to a historic ranch in the foothills of the Rockies and into Calgary for the fast-paced Calgary Stampede.
“This season of Equitrekking is our most diverse yet. From riding with the Bedouin in the Middle East and through vineyards in Uruguay to visiting spice markets in Istanbul and pristine parks in the USA, we cover the globe and introduce viewers to the world’s most exotic and accessible destinations,” said Darley.
“With local people as our guides, viewers are let in on a more personal take on travel and world cultures.”
Horsemanship Around The Globe
On a two-episode journey through the Middle Eastern country of Jordan, Darley rides with the Bedouin in the spectacular Wadi Rum Desert, explores magical Petra, hikes Jordan’s version of the Grand Canyon, snorkels in the Red Sea and floats in the Dead Sea.
In the well-preserved Roman city of Jerash, Darley tries NASCAR’s ancient counterpart, dressing in Roman garb and hopping a ride on a horse drawn chariot.
To gain insight into the history and characteristics of the Arabian breed, Equitrekking gains exclusive access to the Royal Stables, where Darley interviews HRH Princess Alia on an insider’s tour.
