Winston Churchill once said “no hour is wasted that is spent in the saddle.” At RIDE TV, we believe that sentiment, and we create original programming for people who love great entertainment with an equine twist. Horses are an amazing part of the world’s past, present, and future. RIDE TV is a 24/7 television network and digital content company dedicated to showcasing the equestrian culture and lifestyle, and covering all breeds and disciplines of the horse world.
Ride Television Network, Inc., is a privately owned corporation, founded and based in Fort Worth, Texas. The company was founded by its three original shareholders: Michael Fletcher (C.E.O.), Craig Morris (President) and Tony Ford. Michael Fletcher, a veteran media industry entrepreneur, was introduced to Craig Morris, a world champion equestrian and television host, by Tony Ford. Craig wanted to find a bigger and better way to grow the success of his weekly TV show. After a long conversation, Michael told Craig that it might be possible to launch a 24/7 cable television network, but the channel would need to focus on the equestrian lifestyle with reality shows, documentaries and other content that would have broad appeal. After hours and hours of discussion, RIDE TV was formed and, on October 1, 2014, launched on air.
RIDE TV is based in Fort Worth, Texas but is distributed around the world. RIDE TV distributes its programming on television in Asia, Latin America and throughout the world on the Internet via RIDE TV GO.
Tune in for an entertaining mix of reality shows, equine event coverage, inspiring documentaries, cooking demonstrations and more! Our unique programming features celebrities, champions and the personalities at the heart of America’s equestrian culture. All of our programming is professionally produced in high-definition and 4K.
