Format: Paperback
The first time I saw an episode of Equitrekking was when my housemate just got her HDTV. It was an episode on travel in Ireland and the footage was gorgeous. Touring by horseback looked like a wonderful way to explore Ireland's emerald countryside.

The locations from the first season are in this book, so if you saw an episode and wanted to know more about it (including where they stay and what locations they visit) then buy this book.

There are unusual locations such as Iceland and Spain, but also some typical destination such as Maui. However their nature-exploring trip by horseback is much different than my touristy trip there in my 20s. :) There are also other domestic locations that I wouldn't have thought about such as Wyoming and the Carolinas that look like such fun and very appealing.

If you like horses, unusual ways to travel or beautiful landscape photography, then pick up this book.

Format: Paperback
Before the coming of the automobile, the only way to travel the trails, roads, and countryside was by horse -- either astride a horse or in a wagon hauled by them. With the coming of 'the horseless carriage', these equine companions became relegated to recreational uses on ranches. But the public's love affair with the horse has never gone away. Published as a companion to the PBS television series 'Equitrekking' is a superbly illustrated compendium of some of the world's best horse riding destinations ranging from the romantic coast of Ireland, to the wilderness of southern Spain, to the wine country of California, to the rugged back country of Colorado, and more! The informative and engaging text by Darley Newman is liberally illustrated throughout with the color photography of Chip Ward. The result is "Equitrekking: Travel Adventures On Horseback", a compendium of places that will inspire a whole new generation to the adventure of horseback riding as a means of touring and experiences truly memorable reaches of the world both at home and abroad.

I have been a fan of Equitrekking since I first discovered the show on PBS, and this new book is a beautiful compliment to the series. The photos really capture the highlights of Darley's travels, and they make me wish I was riding alongside her on each adventure! As a horse rider myself, it is evident from her summaries in the book, and the show itself, that Darley has a great love and appreciation for horses. I am anxious to see where she will go next, and in the meantime, I will enjoy exploring this book!
