Texas (Episode #607)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 20, 2012 -- 5:00 PM

Equitrekking's host Darley Newman cowboys up to explore Texas Hill Country, Fort Worth and North Texas, riding with modern day cowboys to learn about Texas horse culture. At Wildcatter Ranch, Darley attempts to feed giant longhorn cattle, before driving a wild group of fresh cattle across a stream. Equitrekking helps viewers explore the rich oil history of this area of Texas with guide Jay Brewer, who gives a genuine feel for this area where he grew up and that he loves dearly. Since everything is bigger in Texas, Darley learns how to season a big Texas steak-- the best part being the taste test-- at Wildcatter Ranch's restaurant. In Texas Hill Country, Darley rides at two different ranches to experience the trails in the Hill Country State Natural Area, a popular place for locals and visitors to ride horses. Then, Darley travels to Fort Worth to attend the Fort Worth Stock Show, see the twice-daily cattle drive through the city streets and visit the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame.

Arizona (Episode #605)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 6, 2012 -- 5:00 PM

Travel with Equitrekking from Northeastern Arizona down to the border of Mexico, to explore the diversity of this southwestern state along with Emmy nominated television host Darley Newman. Down by the border of Mexico, Darley rides at a 300-year-old hacienda style ranch in the high Sonoran desert with a real cowboy guide. On a ride to the highest peak in the area, locals introduce us to views of the rolling hills of Mexico. Outside of Phoenix, Darley saddles up to ride old gold mining routes and pan for gold with a modern day prospector in the Bradshaw Mountains. Next, Darley takes off from a horse friendly bed and breakfast into the town of Cave Creek. This town is unique, as you can ride your horse instead of driving a car into town. Darley and her local friends tie up their horses to a hitching post at a cowboy hangout for lunch, where Darley learns to cook a peach cobbler, Dutch oven style. Finally, Equitrekking's host leads viewers through snow covered Canyon de Chelly with Navajo guide Lee Bigwater, taking in the petroglyphs and cliff dwellings left by the Ancient Puebloans, also known as the Anasazi.
