WTB Black Western Saddle (Gaited or Semi QH Bars)

Hi!



I am looking to buy a black (or dark brown) saddle with gaited or semi QH bars. My horse is a little hard to fit. He is a TWH/SB cross. I have bought 2 saddles for him already that have not fit him.



I do not have tons of money to spend, so I'm not going to be real picky about the shape. I just want to be able to get up in it, without fear of it falling apart. (I've had that happen before).=( MUST be in ok condition. I don't mind if there's a small tear, I just want a… Continue

Fall Riding

Well it is almost here again. The weather is getting cooler and folks are wanting to get out and ride.

The sunflowers in bloom, all the summer colors and the natural beauty of our trails made a lasting impression on our new friends. They booked with us for the next 3 months. WoW! The end of summer is upon us now is the perfect time to get out and ride. We… Continue

The most amazing horseman I've ever met!

Hi everybody!



Last week my husband & I were lucky enough to have a friend of a friend ( and his 3 horses) come through TN. & stay with us for a few days. His name is Eara Cooley & he is from Ca. I think that anyone who loves & respects horses would find his story interesting. Ezra has rode his horse (Big Red) across the United States twice & has also rode across Australia. Ezra does this to raise money for the Children's miracle network & is very passionate… Continue

Don't like tugging and pulling to get your cinch tight? Try this new product. It is amazing !

Its the Mighty Cinch !!





Mighty Cinch is the easiest known way for riders, like you, to tighten your saddles ON or OFF your horse. It's small enough to fit under your stirrup leather, but mighty enough to tighten your saddle just by clicking.

And the best part is there is NO pulling; NO tugging AND you don't even have to get off your horse. to retighten your saddle





Want to know more about Mighty Cinch?

You… Continue

Potomac Horse Fever

Hey everyone. I just wanted to warn everyone to be on the lookout for Potomac Horse Fever. I have had two horses that have come down with it; lost one of them. This is something that most people don't think we have to worry about in Tennessee, but it is with us now. I also have a friend that lives about 20 miles from me that has a horse with it and is in very bad condition at UT Vet Hospital. If you notice your horse is acting differently about eating or drinking and is running a fever, it is… Continue

swimming with your horse

Yanahli WMA is just outside of Columbia off of Hwy 50, on the east side of Columbia. You take a left on Blue Springs Road (if you are coming from Columbia) if you are coming from I-65 I guess you would go right, but I haven't been from that direction so I don't know if Blue Springs road loops back to Hwy 50 or not. Coming from Columbia you will come to a quarry/rock/gravel business and the road turns to gravel and bears off to the right. You will cross a one lane bridge, then you will come to a… Continue

swimming with horses

Well, we tried something new with our horses yesterday. Due to the heat, instead of going riding with Little Rock and Summer...we went swimming! Little Rock really seemed to enjoy the water...he pawed and stuck his head under the water, splashing and having a great time. Some friends and I went last weekend to Yanahli WMA just east of Columbia and rode and we watered the horses there in the Duck River. I noticed the river was deep enough to swim the horses there, so this weekend we took them… Continue
