"Horse Trails" Announces Series Launch On HorseTV:
Series To Feature Top Endurance Competitons and Trail Riding Across America

April 1, Houston, TX - “Horse Trails,” the new television series dedicated to all aspects of trail riding with a special emphasis on endurance and competitive trail riding competition today announced its broadcast launch on HorseTV.

Endurance Riding is one of the fastest growing equine sports throughout the world. Riding over distances of 50 and 100 miles, horses and riders compete against each other while traveling at moderate paces, with proper conditioning a major factor in successful horse and rider partnerships.

Endurance Riding is one of the seven major international disciplines included in the World Equestrian Games competitions which are held every four years between the Olympic Games. This September, Spain will host the World Equestrian Games for 2002.

Hosted by two-time AERC National Champion, Dave Kaden, upcoming Horse Trails programs will include the 2001 Pan American Championships, the 2001 American Endurance Riding Conference National Championships, and the IAHA (International Arabian Horse Association) Championships in New Mexico. Other episodes will showcase riding areas in such diverse locations as the White Sands National Monument – where moonlight riding is popular – to fall foliage rides in the mountains of Northern Kentucky.

The Horse Trails television series is sponsored in part by Specialized Saddles, designer and manufacturer of customized endurance and trail riding saddles.

Horse Trails will be featured as part of the regular HorseTV program schedule on Monday nights starting April 1. For more information on show descriptions and schedules, please visit or the HorseTV website. For advertising or sponsorship information please contact host David Kaden via email at “”
