Episode Guide »
Host Darley Newman and local guides explore some of the more than 100 miles of Appalachian trails surrounding the Biltmore Estate, much as guests of George Vanderbilt would have during the Gilded Age. Darley meets resident horses at The Biltmore Equestrian Center and learns why natural horsemanship is a powerful method of understanding horses. Next, Darley heads downtown to discover the thriving arts scene in Asheville, before taking a lesson in rock climbing at Chimney Rock Park. Traveling further west, Darley meets with Cherokee tribal members and examines the history of horses in Cherokee culture, riding Tennessee Walking horses and fishing for trout in the Great Smoky Mountains. Finally, Darley steps back in time Daufuskie Island. Cantering along wide, pristine beaches is the perfect way to explore this small island off of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Darley learns about the islands original inhabitants, the Cusabo Indians, on a ride down dirt roads towards a maritime forest that was inhabited thousands of years ago by the Cusabo.
