December 10, 2007 -- A new, second season of Equitrekking®, the first travel television series to explore the world on horseback, premieres nationally this January on Public Television, with high definition episodes from Iceland, Maui, Virginia Hunt Country, California Wine Country, Coastal Ireland, Hawaii's Big Island and the Irish Countryside.
Equitrekking, the first travel television series to explore the world on horseback, broadcasts in high definition on Public Television stations across the nation. Host and producer Darley Newman takes viewers on exciting global horseback riding adventures.
The second season of exotic locales finds Newman riding with the locals through the lava fields of Iceland, the remote Valley of Kings on Hawaii's Big Island, vineyards in California Wine Country and Ireland's wide, sandy beaches. Equitrekking's first season debuted on Public Television stations this summer, receiving outstanding ratings and response with episodes from Colorado, Wyoming, Spain, Vermont, the Carolinas and Georgia Coast.
"In each episode we travel off the beaten path, riding with local people on their horses. We learn about a destination's natural surroundings, wildlife and history," said Newman. "We trek to places best seen and sometimes only accessible on horseback, making for unique adventures and stunning natural scenery."
The crew had exciting adventures, riding into the crater of a volcano on Maui, riding and surfing on Donegal's beaches in Northwest Ireland, exploring the Hawaii's cowboy culture and going behind the scenes at a steeplechase in Virginia. For airdates and times, viewers may check their local Public Television listings.
