Tucson, Arizona: In every Horse Master episode, Julie Goodnight works with a horse and rider—helping them reach their horsemanship goals together while she offers up her practical and kind advice. In its seventh year on RFD-TV, the award winning Horse Master with Julie Goodnight show’s cast and crew is heading to Tucson, Arizona and the White Stallion Ranch ( www.WhiteStallion.com ). This is your chance to be a cast member on the show and to work with Goodnight at this premiere guest ranch. Applications are due now! Deadline: February 1, 2014; shoot week is March 9-14, 2014.
Apply online now for the March shoot and find more details about what it takes to be in the cast at www.HorseMaster.tv . Goodnight will choose a variety of cast members—those working on advanced riding maneuvers, those with challenges during ground work lessons, and those who would like to overcome obstacles on the trail or in the show ring. English and Western riders are welcome to apply. The set is closed to all but those selected to be on camera.
Goodnight travels with her production crew to new locations throughout the year. She’s thrilled with the thought of shooting at a ranch where she and her cast and crew can relax and enjoy the scenery after long working days. The crew (led by producer/director Heidi Nyland Melocco and her Whole Picture, LLC as well as Stephen Schott of 12Basket Productions) coordinates and records eight episodes during one “shoot week.”
Goodnight says she’s always ready to head to the warm, sunny Southwest for at least one shoot each season and the White Stallion Ranch is just the place. This is the crew’s third shoot at the ranch and all are eager to work together once more.
As with all episodes, the eight shows shot at White Stallion Ranch will air on RFD-TV (DirecTV channel 345, Dish 231, and on cable outlets through FamilyNet) then be available to watch online on Goodnight’s online video library . A new show airs each Monday night at 10:30 pm ET and that show repeats each Saturday night for West Coast viewers.
The True family’s White Stallion Ranch has over 3,000 acres of wide-open land and is based at the foot of the Tucson Mountains, adjacent to the Saguaro National Park. The Horse Master cast and crew will shoot at the main ranch and plans trail riding episodes to make the best use of the scenery. If you’re selected for the cast on this closed set, you’ll be treated to reduced rates to stay at the ranch.
Those wishing to stay and play after shoot week may participate in the ranch’s activities including guided trail rides and even time working cattle (it is a working Longhorn cattle ranch). You can also see where Western Movies such as Arizona with William Holden and How the West Was Won with James Arness were filmed.
If you and your horse are near Tucson and would love some down-to-earth help from Goodnight, this is your chance! Apply today. The next Horse Master shoot is scheduled for summertime in Colorado. If the crew is headed your way, make sure to alert your horse-loving friends. Being a member of the cast can be a life-changing experience—with time spent with Goodnight and her well-organized staff who will guide you throughout the casting and shoot-week experience.
