BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (Oct. 23, 2012)—Seeking advice on horse care? Look no further than your local Tractor Supply manager for expert advice.
Joan Deckard, manager of the Sand Springs, Okla., Tractor Supply store, appears on the ninth episode of “TOUGH GRIT,” a DIY television show that combines rural–lifestyle experts from Tractor Supply Company and GRIT magazine with competitive team challenges. In the Oct. 29 episode of “TOUGH GRIT,” Deckard will teach the contestant how to properly maintain a stall and care for horses.
“Meeting everyone was such a great experience,” said Deckard. “I made new friends, learned a lot about the filming process and was able to lend a helping hand. Our team members live the ‘Out Here’ lifestyle and can answer customer questions because we’ve been there. We’re here to help.”
“TOUGH GRIT” airs Mondays at 6 p.m. CT on RFD–TV with an encore showing Tuesday at 8 a.m. CT. Viewers can watch episodes at ToughGrit.com once they’ve aired on RFD–TV.
As Team Tractor Supply’s coach, Deckard guides a contestant through two challenges where efficiency, accuracy and safety count. Team Tractor Supply battles Team GRIT, led by GRIT Editor–in–Chief Hank Will, for up to $1,000 in gift cards to Tractor Supply.
RFD–TV is available on DirecTV (channel 345) and Dish Network (channel 231) and most major cable providers. Visit www.rfdtv.com for local listings. To learn more or to watch previous episodes, visit ToughGrit.com.
