Equitrekking Launches the 50 State Trail Riding Project

September 24, 2013

The travel experts at Equitrekking have launched the “50 State Trail Riding Project” to promote trail riding in every U.S. state. The new project furthers Equitrekking’s greater mission to inspire more people, particularly youths, to get outdoors and horseback ride, and to raise awareness of the need to preserve trails for equestrians across the USA. 

The Equitrekking team crisscrosses the globe to find the best places to horseback ride and films them for the Emmy Award-winning PBS TV show Equitrekking and the popular companion website Equitrekking.com.

Guest writers are encouraged to submit articles on their favorite trails in their home states. Articles will be published on Equitrekking.com, in the Equitrekking newsletter and promoted via Equitrekking’s social media. The popular website focuses on great places to ride horses, including on vacation, and also provides deep resources for people of all ages to enjoy America’s great natural spaces.

 “We’ve discovered and publicized wonderful trails across the United States, but there’s only so much we can do alone,” said Darley Newman, the host and creator of Equitrekking and an award-winning travel journalist. “We’re reaching out to the larger community of equestrians to contribute, because the more we all get out and utilize our trails, the better chance we’ll have in keeping them open to recreational use, and specifically open to horseback riders. It’s also a great way to inspire our youth, who may read these articles online, to get out and ride.”

The Equitrekking team has already received the first post in the “50 State Trail Riding Project” from a member of the Delaware Equine Council, who wrote about places to trail ride in Delaware’s three counties, including trails at Brandywine Creek State Park, Lums Pond State Park, and Delaware’s beaches.

Equitrekking’s unique focus and worldwide distribution has motivated tens of millions of viewers on PBS and around the world to watch Equitrekking regularly and many to get back in the saddle at local stables and riding vacation destinations around the world.
