Darley Newman, host of the Emmy Award-winning Equitrekking TV series on PBS, will be speaking to audiences and showing stunning high definition video from her adventures traveling the world on horseback at the upcoming Equine Affaire exposition in Pomona, California February 4-7th.

In California, Darley is scheduled to speak on February 4th at 1:00 pm on "Fun & Insightful Equestrian Destinations," Friday, Feb 5th at 10:00 am on "The Importance of Horses in International Cultures," and 5:00 pm on "Exploring the World on Horseback." Equine Affaire is a premiere equine exposition and equestrian gathering featuring World and National Champion competitors, clinics from top trainers and equestrian experts, and live demonstrations and seminars.

“Riding native breeds in exotic Jordan, Iceland, Ireland, Wales and right here in the United States in Kentucky, Wyoming and beyond has helped me gain insight into the history, culture and geology of each destination and allowed me to get to pristine natural settings and ancient villages untouched by development and modern times,” said Darley. “I’m continually delighted by the bond that horses and humans share. It’s this bond that brings me as a traveler closer to local people around the world.”

During her first two presentations, Darley will be showing high definition video filmed around the world to demonstrate her topics, including never before seen footage from new Equitrekking episodes set to debut on PBS spring of 2010. Attendees can expect to see dramatic HD footage of horse travels and breeds from around the world including Iceland, Ireland, Hawaii, Wyoming, Alberta, Uruguay, Jordan, Spain, Wales, Texas, Costa Rica and more.

While filming Equitrekking, Darley constantly encounters challenging places to explore on horseback, like the crater of a volcano on Maui, the backcountry in snowy Quebec, the varied terrain along the U.S. Mexico border, Jordan's desert with the Bedouin and the rainforest in Belize. She’s ridden championship-cutting horses in Colorado, award winning Andalusians in Spain, Quarter horses throughout the American West and Arabians in the Middle East. With Equitrekking, Darley combines her passion for horses and travel with her background in television production. Darley has worked at 48 Hours, CBS, the WB, The Talk Radio News Service and on various PBS documentaries and series.
