Filming Details & More Are Being Shared on Social Media

John Morayniss, executive producer, announced the series in June and called it an “EPIC romance.”

He also shared photos from Alberta, Canada, showcasing where they’re filming.

Greg Gugliotta, executive producer, also shared on-location photos from Alberta.

Garcia has shared some videos of her learning to interact more with horses. She didn’t tag “Ride” in her videos, so it’s not certain if this is for the series or not.

For one video she wrote, “I’m new to horses but I think it’s going well? 😅… come along this ride with me!🐎 … I’ll admit I was intimidated at first but as I get to know these incredible intuitive animals I’m loving them more and more and gaining confidence every day.”

She also shared a video of her playing country music and wrote, “Going country 🤠… forgive the rustiness, I’m getting back on this horse and re-discovering my first love. 🎶🎶.”

Nancy Travis replied, “I’m alright with the slow burn 🔥 you are extraordinary 😍😍😍.”

Morayniss shared another stunning photo of Fairmont Banff Springs on June 11, writing that it was the view from his room.

Showrunner and executive producer Sherri Cooper-Landsman wrote, “When what started as a side hustle turns into the most exciting Ride! So thrilled to be on this special show with our incredible cast! So grateful to so many.”
