You are in the woods so you may find some bug spray helpful. After filling out some paperwork your guides will explain a few basics about riding and what to expect on the trails. Your horse will be saddled and waiting for you!
Next, your guide will help you saddle up and find the correct length for you stirrups. Then you are off for a relaxing 45 minute stroll through the woods of Cedars of Lebanon.
During our ride we spotted a turkey, a deer, lots of birds and some cactus plants (I had never seen cactus in Tennessee before)! The horses were all well behaved and enjoyed the fresh air as must as we did. Our guides were happy to answer all our questions about the horses.
When arriving back to the stables we got off our horses, again with the help of our guides and kissed our horses good bye! Be sure to pack yourself a cooler and enjoy and ice cold water when you’re through!
