Equitrekking Adventures Previous Broadcasts

Southern Quebec (Episode #608)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 10, 2012 -- 5:00 PM

Who knew you could horseback ride through the winter snow in Quebec? Equitrekking's Emmy nominated host Darley Newman explores the snowy trails by horses, skis and dogsleds in the Eastern Townships, St. Alphonse-Rodriguez and Mont Tremblant. Through Darley and her interactions with local people, viewers learn about the French, British and American influences in the Eastern Townships by riding with Jacques Robidas. Jacques leads Darley through snow-covered trails on horseback, before teaching her how to drive a horse-drawn sleigh. As snow cascades down, viewers experience the picture perfect horse-drawn sleigh ride. Next, Darley explores the city of Montreal, sampling some French pastries in Old Montreal and getting an insiders look at the Canadian horses in Mont Royal Park, akin to New York's Central Park. Darley meets Diablo, a stunning, black Canadian horse who patrols the park and the city. In Mont Tremblant Darley takes a ski lesson, which ends in the picturesque village. She tastes poutine, a Quebec comfort food, before experiencing an exciting dogsled adventure. At Ranch Mont Tremblant, Darley rides in the backcountry, experiencing the thrill of sinking into powdery snow off the trails. Finally, Darley visits the family ranch, where she horseback rides and slides through the snowy hills!

Utah (Episode #609)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 3, 2012 -- 5:00 PM

Equitrekking's travel expert Darley Newman rides Utah's great outdoors at national and state parks throughout the state, including Bryce Canyon, Snow Canyon, Capitol Reef and Antelope Island. Equitrekking Utah begins with a ride into beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park to see the stunning hoodoos, sprinkled with a frosting of snow. Darley learns about the history of the pioneers as she wrangles bison on historic Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake. Antelope, bison and a variety of wildlife roam this island, which is now a state park. Viewers see stunning snow covered Rocky Mountains and Salt Lake City in the distance as Darley and her local guide ride the island. After taking time to drive scenic Highway 12, Darley rides in lesser-visited Snow Canyon State Park outside of the city of St. George through desert-like expanses with lava flows and towering white sandstone canyons. Next, viewers experience Native American history on a ride to see petroglyphs and other rock art in colorful Capitol Reef National Park.
