Ever driven past a grand old barn in the middle of Kansas and wondered what stories that barn could tell? We have! From historic barns that were once a hub for agriculture, to humble backyard barns that serve as shelter for retired show ponies, to state of the art training and breeding facilities hoping to be home to the next famous equine athlete, barns come in all shapes, sizes and functionalities. Saddle up and hit the trail with us as we learn all about America’s barns and the people and horses that call them home.
Join hosts Ariel Koester and Ingrid Schaffenburg for an engaging look at the wonderful world of barns where people and horses live, work and play. Airing weekly on Ride TV Dish channel 248 as well as The Rural Channel in Canada, Wild About Barns is a new television series featuring historic, backyard and show barns, each built for different functionality and sport. We talk to barn architects, builders, horse trainers and horse owners who work with horses of every breed and discipline. We’ve traveled all over America – from Gypsy horses swimming seaside in Florida to the largest turn of the century Percheron Breeding farm in Kansas to Olympic Grand Prix jumpers in Connecticut. Follow along with us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter and share your barn with the WAB community! Equestrians and barn lovers across America want to hear your stories
