Trail Ride Kentucky with Equitrekking

Kentucky offers trail riding in state parks, farms, historic villages, and more. Here?s a video clip of Darley Newman riding in Kentucky, from the PBS television show, Equitrekking.

Trail riding in Kentucky is accessible, family friendly, and can be easy on the wallet. There are currently 229 riding trails offering more than 1,913 miles throughout Kentucky.

I tested many of the trails myself, while filming “Equitrekking Kentucky,” a high-definition episode of Equitrekking, my Emmy-winning television series on PBS.

As a part of my job for Equitrekking, I ride horses with locals around the world. I found great horses and riders all over Kentucky, from state parks and recreation areas to farms and historic villages.

For a rundown of four riding locations where you can bring your own horse or ride one of the outfitter’s well-trained horses to explore Kentucky from the saddle, see The Trail Rider, April 2011.

Here’s a video clip from the PBS television show Equitrekking on trail-riding in Kentucky.
