Between the Ears- Equitrekking Photos from around the World

Some of our favorite "between the ears" photos from riding the world while filming for Equitrekking, the Emmy-winning PBS TV series.

by Darley Newman

Seeing the world through the ears of a horse is a special way to travel, taking you places that vehicles can't reach and that would take quite some time to navigate on foot. For years, we've been traveling the world on horseback for Equitrekking, riding in beautiful national parks, remote deltas, lush Irish mountains and extreme Hawaiian volcanoes. Below are some of our favorite between the ears photos. Enjoy the scenic views and see what it feels like to ride the world in this unique photo journey.
