Where was your favorite trail riding experience?
When I first went to Wrangler Horse Camp at the LBL in Kentucky before there was a Wranglers, we use to sleep in the hay loaf of that big ole barn where the eating place is at now. That was about 40 years or more

My husband and I did NOT make it to Bucksnort last year :(:( LIFE got in the way. We are primary caretakers for his Mom (Alzheimer's) and she took a turn for the worse last year (physically). She has gotten better but her mind is worse. My business was in it's first year...NOT a good time to leave it...Good Lord willing...we will be at Bucksnort this year. We love the people and the riding there. Then on to Big South Fork with some friends we met a few years ago (riding at Bucksnort). .. Tennessee is wonderful. I envy you guys the riding. Our winter riding is great...but we haven't ridden in a year. Our poor horses will probably pass out when we bring them to Tenn...we plan to have a few "easy" days...then get progressively harder. We love it there...and I've missed the riding so much.

TMI !!! Yep...it will be for Halloween. We enjoyed it as did everyone who dressed up! It seems that there are probably 250 or so "riders"...and more who stay in camp. It doesn't really seem crowded though. You can ride the organized rides, or not. With a group or not. No one forces anyone to do anything. It's good. The people are friendly. The stalls are not the "best" but it is affordable. There IS a way "around" Snowy River, but the thrill is the whole reason for riding that far to do it! If our flatland horses can do it...anyone's can! (although, Vickie, LOTS of people have slid, backtracked or given up)! No biggee! I personally LOVE it! (I also ride a SHORT horse, so it isn't so far to fall) LOL!!!

We love Bucksnort. It would be hard to "give it up"...so I'm glad we aren't. It IS child friendly, especially the weekends, but it seems they are all good kids. Not any obnoxious ones that I have seen! They have a rodeo...mostly "fun" for the kids...some of us crazy adults join in. There is a swimming hole...a beautiful little deep place in the river. Plenty of "easy" riding for those who want to easy ride...wide open spaces...and also thick woods...steep hills (Snowy River and the Roller Coaster) or nice easy hills...and it's an all round good place to ride. We and some friends are at camp site 57-59 ( we drive a motorhome - come by and meet us). We always try to have a campfire going and all are welcome to come sit a spell.

I've "dived" off the Snowy River hill at Bucksnort and my horse fell!!! If I could have found a better place to go down, I would have! I love to ride at Bucksnort, though.

Hey John! You will love Bucksnort. At first glance, it doesn't look too "mountainous"...but there are plenty of good sized hills...one ride we call "Snowy River", a nice "crik", decent food and plenty of it, GREAT people...lots of fun! DRESS UP FOR HALLOWEEN is the Friday BEFORE it actually starts (the 3rd). Bring an outfit! That is a lot of fun...and will be even more fun as more people dress up! Last year, probably just over a dozen were brave enough to dress up. I was a big fat, black "Aunt Jemima" last year. I'll dig out the pic and post it...Great good fun!

Hey John, there is a section of this website where you can post trail riding locations along with your rating, reviews and suggestions, then others can add to your posting. Could you post one on LBL because me and a group of buddies are considering a weekend ride there in the fall. You'll see similar postings for Loretta Lynn's and I did one on Prim Springs. Thanks.

Hey John, thanks for joining our website. Most of the members are from Middle Tennessee but some as far away as Florida. We use the website to share pictures, rate trails, post trail rides and host campfire e-chats. We're glad to have you join us.

Happy trails,
Mike Murphy
