Road to the Horse tickets

I have two tickets for Road to the Horse on March 14-15 which I am now unable to use. I'm looking to sell them for what I paid - $110 per ticket. The seats are in section F, row K, seats 15 & 16. This is now a sold out event. You can go to their website - I think you just enter in Road to the Horse - and find out more info about the event and where the seats are. If anyone is interested in these tickets, please email me (Beth) at wolfbug@hughes.net.

Look forward to hearing from someone… Continue

Wow!! went fox hunting this weekend with the Beech Grove fox hunting group . We rode for 3-4 hours and my horse Coach successfully carried me over the jumps and hilly terrain. WHAT A HORSE!!!.

Looking for a trail horse

My husband is starting back riding with me and he is not comfotable with the horses I have. I am desperately seeking an experienced trail horse that has good temperment. Nothing over 15.1. If I can't find something I am afraid he will stop riding and he is retiring soon. Need to keep him busy. Also need something that doesn't have to be ridden regularly -- one that can stand in the pasture for a month or so. He has good balance but just needs one he is not afraid will trip or fall with him. I… Continue

Does anybody out there besides Mike Murphy practice the Clinton Anderson training methods, the one rein stop saves me on a regular basis.

Senior Horse Looking for Companion Board in and around the Nashville Area

I have a senior horse, 27+/-, in good health other than blind in his left eye which doesn't inhibit him at all, but he's to the point where he just needs to be a companion horse with daily feed and hay and with someone who checks on their horses daily. Is there anyone in or around the Nashville area who might be looking for a companion horse for a lone horse that they might have? He can be used for some light riding and actually has a lot of spunk and spirit. I could really use the help finding… Continue

Found home for abandoned and neglected dog

George and I were down in Live Oak, FL for the Suwannee New Years Ride when I happened to see a small dog at the stables. Jared, the stable manager had found this little female dog in the woods on Christmas Day and took her to his home. Now this dog was the sweetest dog that absolutely loved everyone and everything. Just one of the reason why I took her. Unfortunately she had not been as loved by her previous owner. She had mats so thick on her body that clipping her was next to impossible. And… Continue

winter riding

Well, had my first taste of truly cold weather riding on Sunday afternoon. 8 of my buddies met at my barn and we went out on some trails then onto some dirt back country roads. Since it had rained and made the trails so slick, we thought they would be safer. It took 2 layers of thermals under my pants, 2 long sleeve shirts, and one heavy jacket, plus thermal socks and gloves to be comfortable, but it was so worth it! Little Rock did well and so did all the other horses. We even got to canter… Continue

A wonderful place to ride!! Big South Fork

Honey Creek Horse Camp is one of the most easily accessed areas neighboring the Big South Fork National Park, yet remains nestled in a very private location. The drive in can easily handle the longest of trailers with no stress. The majority of campsites have the convenience and ease of a driver's side back in, and a very wide cul da sac at the end of the camp's drive.

Honey Creek Horse Camp provides more beautiful scenery, in just a half-day's ride, than you'll find anywhere. There are… Continue

Treeless saddles

I have switched over to the Bob Marshall treeless saddle and I love it. Does anybody out there ride in one? They are lightweight, 17 pounds and it fits my horse very well. There are some cheap knock-offs out there (Hilason) but the quality is not good or the fit. Robin.

Trail Ride Late January or early February

I was wondering if anyone would from TTR would be interested in getting together at Wranglers Camp Ground at Land Between the Lakes sometime soon? I know it is cold but we could bundle up. This would be a wonderful time to meet each other and fellowship. I think it is $14.00 to park a trailer over night or $5.00 to day ride. They have stables, electric hook up, cabins and bath houses. I have never looked for hotels in that area but I am sure there are some within a few miles of the camp. If… Continue

I'm wild about Equines!!

I am 46 yrs. old and I have had horses ever since I was around 8 yrs. old. If I counted how many I think I have had, it would be around 20. I've had quarter horses, donkeys, and grade horses, it didn't matter what kind, I love them all. About 12 yrs. ago a friend of mine was riding her gaited horses at a local horse show and asked me if I wanted to ride one of her mares, she was a TWH. I rode her around and from that moment I said, I have to get me a gaited horse, I had never ridden one before… Continue

Sweet Feed and control problems?

I had just about had it with my 4 year old TWH gelding, Pegasus. I posted him for sale on 4 different sites and was trying to detach myself from my love for this horse, in case anyone wanted to buy him. I had talked to several people over the past year about how "wired" he had become and how unmanagable he was getting. I was visiting with a trainer in Leipers Fork and she asked me if I was giving Pegasus any sweet feed. I had been giving him half sweet feed, half oats almost every day since I… Continue
