Exploring the World on Horseback!
In Vermont, Equitrekking’s Emmy nominated host and equestrian travel expert Darley Newman explores Green Mountain trails and country roads on horseback, learning about Morgan horses, Icelandic horses and Vermont history and culture.
Darley visits the Mountain Top Inn outside of Killington to explore the area's trails and learn the art of driving with two large Clydesdales. You don't have to travel all the way to Iceland to experience the smooth gait of the Icelandic horse. Equitrekking takes a multi-day inn-to-inn ride through meadows, woods and old farmlands on Icelandic horses. Next, Darley visits the University of Vermont's Morgan Horse Farm to learn about Vermont's state animal and UVM's historic breeding program, which dates back to 1878. Darley also enjoys some time out of the saddle to visit Shelburne Museum, a Vermont Country Store and downtown Burlington.
