air date: 1/26/13 9:00 AM
Kentucky is a state well known for its horses. In Equitrekking Kentucky, discover wildflowers, a historic mill site and rolling green hills on the trails at Shaker Village on horseback. With Shaker Village's naturalist, TV host Darley Newman gets the rare chance to ride horses through the center of this well-preserved historic village. Viewers learn about Kentucky's agricultural past as Darley rides smooth Tennessee Walking horses with a local resident, who is proud of her multi-generational farm and its heritage. Next, Equitrekking takes on the trails at Land Between the Lakes and Barren River State Park in Western Kentucky, imagining what this land looked like at a time when Native Americans and buffalo roamed the tall grasslands of Kentucky. In Lexington, join Darley to see diverse breeds at the Kentucky Horse Park and attend a fast-paced, world-class equestrian competition, the Rolex Three Day. Next, visit a Thoroughbred rehabilitation center, where horses from the racetrack are rehabilitated so that they may find new homes. Darley is introduced to a very special horse, King D, who has made a positive change and is on the road to finding a new home.
