Pat helped manage two horseback vacation businesses with husband, Tom. She traveled the country with him, taking guests on overnight horseback vacations for nineteen years. She helped him organize and coordinate “The American Transcontinental Trail Ride” in 1995, the ride that inspired their current television series, Best of America by Horseback.
Pat is a graduate of Old Dominion University. She developed many of her skills working on several major motion pictures in production coordination and media exposure.
She was the Production Manager for a cable television station in Virginia for 11 years, overseeing every aspect of daily television production. Pat’s passion is producing outdoor sports programs, such as fishing, hunting, skiing, boating, flying and horseback riding. She has produced segments for television all over the United States, Canada, and locations outside of the U.S. including England, Scotland, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Pat’s attention to detail is evident in the production of the Best of America by Horseback series. She makes sure each episode is informative, educational, scenic, and is appealing to a broad audience. If viewers do not have horses, her goal is to still have them enjoy the beautiful scenery, wildlife and interesting information she tries to include in every show.
Wanda and her late husband, Mike, have become some of Tom and Pat's closest friends. Both of them have been a huge help both on location and en route. Wanda and her husband Mike were both integral parts of the Mexico to Canada ride in 2009. Wanda has traveled with Tom and Pat to the Yukon, Belize, the Caribbean and on all show productions across America.
Wanda has had a passion for videography and had the opportunity to turn her hobby into a job with Best of America by Horseback. Wanda helps Pat film the rides and events at the different locations. She is always ready to go film. Wanda's sweet nature and southern accent makes her a great addition to the Best of America by Horseback Crew. She really enjoys fishing and of course trail riding.
