'Equestrian Nation' a New TV Show for Horse Lovers

January 31, 2007-Beginning this spring, horse lovers of all types will be tuning into a new magazine-style television show called Equestrian Nation, hosted by legendary Cowboy Larry Mahan. Equestrian Nation features stories about the many different equine breeds and disciplines from around the world. “The Mikmar Bit Company is excited to be a part of this informative and educational television series. It’s a great opportunity for Mikmar to be associated with this first-rate TV production which will be seen by a wide variety of horse enthusiasts,” said Dan Weyand, Mikmar president.

The show will premiere on March 2nd on the RFD-TV Network. RFD-TV is distributed on DIRECTV (Channel 379), DISH Network (Channel 9409), Mediacom and NCTC cable systems in all 50 states, serving over 28 million U.S. homes. RFD-TV has dedicated blocks of time specifically for equine programming, and Equestrian Nation will air multiple times per week. Program schedules are available at http://www.rfdtv.com or at http://www.equestriannation.tv

At a big Stock Show celebration party at the Denver Market, Larry Mahan and RFD-TV executive Butch Morgan took the stage to announce the TV debut of Equestrian Nation, and described to guests a sampling of the program content.

Stories coming up include: trick roping with Montie Montana; rare footage of legendary horseman Tom Dorrance sharing some of his training techniques; a trip to Scotland to see the home of the Clydesdales and the fields they have plowed for centuries; a visit with Sons of the Pioneers, Rusty Richards; barrel racing with Charmayne James; reining with Dell Hendricks; scenic riding in Ireland; and cowboy cooking with Billy Ruiz. Agricultural stories are included, like holistic grazing of cattle and how this method can keep your pastures healthy. The show features vet tips from Dr. Doug Herthel and hoof care information with farrier John Raede. Equestrian Nation is a show that is full of information for every kind of horse enthusiast to learn from and enjoy.

The new half-hour RFD-TV show is hosted by Six-Time All Around Rodeo Champion and accomplished horseman Larry Mahan, a legend in professional rodeo and one of its first mainstream media stars. Mahan won five all-around championships consecutively from 1964-1966 and added a sixth championship in 1973, marking his place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Today, Mahan is an avid horseman, rancher and horse lover.

Equestrian Nation, also made possible by Kensington Protective Products and Platinum Performance, gives the horse-loving audience a chance to see in-depth stories about horses and horsemen from all over the world, portrayed through award-winning photography and solid equestrian knowledge and experience.
