Best of America by Horseback

Cowboy Channel

Hosted by Del & Shevawn Shields, this series captures the beauty of America by horseback. It is the number one trail riding show in the country, featuring magnificent riding locations around the United States and the surrounding countries while also providing educational and informative segments on horses, travel, equine care, and quality equine products and services.

Each riding location featured on the show is a destination where viewers can go with their own horses; some destinations even provide equine for guests to use. Best of America by Horseback covers all of the details you would want to know before you visit yourself, such as the trails and terrain, the footing and the difficulty level of the trails, the available lodging accommodations or camping facilities as well as ease of access with large rigs.

Other segments on the show feature tips for traveling with your own horses, such as how to plan and map a trip, how to find stop over locations for horses, trailer safety tips, vet tips and horse nutrition tips. If you do not have a horse, you will still enjoy watching the show for the scenic riding locations, local history, and beautiful wildlife of each area.

We are passionate about this country and it's people and it shows through in-depth interviews by our hosts. Best of America by Horseback television show has been broadcast weekly on RFD-TV since 2005.
