CNNGo horse riding

It's hard to narrow down some of the best destinations to take a horse trek around the world, even to 15, but I've done it for an article, featured today on CNNGo.com, World's great horse treks

From Turkey to Ireland and Jordan to Maui, I've trekked the world on horses, riding wtih local people on their loval breeds to discover some of the most dramatic scenery, history and culture that's NOT covered by traditional media, because often the locations are remote.

The CNNGo article has some of the beautiful images Equitrekking's award-winning photographer Chip Ward has captured. Here are a few more.
