I am a passionate trail riding gal. I Love long rides with good friends, gourmet picnics & good wine. Originally from Knoxville, TN, but just moved to Franklin from Alpharetta, Georgia. Currently working PT at Arrington Vineyards.. Fun place! So far in this area I have been trailriding at Percy Warner & Natchez Trace, but always looking for new places close by.
I was invited to do a wine tasting for a group of 30 in Knoxville, TN. They meet monthly...if you are interested I can suggest that they invite you/Arrington to one of their other meetings (they meet monthly); I thought you might enjoy the opportunity seeings that you moved here from Knoxville.
Hi Timi, sounds like a very busy time at your house and you sound deserving of a good trailride. We were hoping to ride this weekend with the beautiful weather in our forecast. One problem, no trailer, ours is in the shop and won't be ready until Monday. All of our tack is with the trailer. We should have it back early next week and can plan the next ride. Let me know what looks good for you coming up. I look forward to getting together for a ride. I also really need to plan another trip back to Arrington Vineyards, a girl's afternoon at Arrington would also be great! Good to hear from you.
Hi Timi, we enjoyed meeting you and sipping wine at Arrington Vineyards. Hope to see you soon on a ride or at the Vineyard, the two together would be perfect!
Days of Wine & Horses
Wine and horses have more in common than one might expect. Both have been man’s companion since antiquity. Both have been revered and coveted, lovingly tendered and prized, nurtured and protected, fought for and celebrated. A wine-maker, like an equestrian, has a love and dedication that is all consuming. Patience and sensitivity are second nature. The horse, like a fine wine is savoured and enjoyed regardless of the expertise of the one who is partaking of the experience. And both have been called “A Gift of the Gods”.
You make some good observations re RUI and cow pies. I'd suggest limiting the tastings to eight, and bring horses into a tie-up area that is away from the general population but close enough that people will see the big line up of horses, beautiful. :-)
We took a 5 hour ride today down in Primm Springs, it was absolutely beautiful. I wish you and your husband could have joined us, we had two other couples riding too.
Good to hear back from you Timi. I am anxious to hear how intersted AV is in having a group of TTR riders tying up and drinking a little wine. If promoted well, we could have well over 50 riders, maybe up to 100.
Howdy Timi, I remember you!!! Thanks for joining Tennessee Trail Riders. We look forward to your "horsey" pictures that you can post and share with others on our website. Also try your hand at posting events, videos and trail ratings. Feel free to invite friendly trail riders and horse lovers.
Maybe we can put together an organized ride that ends at AV, wouldn't that be a hoot to see 10 - 20 horses ride in, tie up, and a bunch of cowboys drinking wine. It would be "unforgettable"! Kix might want to be there for that one!
I hope you meet plenty of riding buddies here!
Again, thanks for joing the website.
Cheers and happy trails,
