We are hard at work editing the new fifth season of Equitrekking for its spring debut on Public Television. Here's a preview of the horse adventures you may watch in 2010.
In Equitrekking's Fifth Season, host Darley Newman takes travelers to Uruguay, Jordan, Alberta, Turkey and beyond to experience horses, history and culture.
Special highlights of the Jordan episodes include an interview with HRH Princess Alia at the Royal Stables in Amman, riding horses with the Bedouin in the Wadi Rum Desert, exploring the ancient city of Petra by horse, camel and on foot, floating in the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, Madaba and Wadi Mujib.In Equitrekking Uruguay, Darley rides with the gauchos at three different ranches, horse rides on the beach, visits Montevideo and Punta del Este and explores local customs and history in this small South American country.Equitrekking Alberta takes viewers to the Canadian Rockies on a pack trip into Banff National Park, riding to high altitudes with a longtime outfitter in Kananaskis, to a historic ranch outside of Calgary and to the Calgary Stampede.
Equitrekking Turkey finds Darley exploring the ghost town of Kakakoy on the Mediterranean Coast, hiking the chilly waters of Saklikent Gorge, exploring the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace in bustling Istanbul, and horse riding and eating local cuisine in Cappadocia.
