Go behind the scenes with the Emmy-winning Equitrekking team and experience the challenges, bloopers and fun involved in filming.

by Darley Newman

Below is a special video playlist taking you behind the scenes with our film crew as we ride horses, snowmobile, ski and explore the world.

We've certainly had our share of bloopers, which we're happy to share with you. No travel adventure is perfect. It's those bumps in the road (or on the trail) that we've learned to quickly adjust to as we travel and film. We definitely ride with it through some extreme terrain, so take a look into the process of filming Equitrekking.
