Tennessee Trail Riders

A social network of avid trail riders and horse enthusiasts


We are strictly a community of horse owners/lovers (4,000 members)


Looking for New People to ride with that enjoy riding as much as I do!

I'm a new member. I joined to see if I could find some new people to ride with. I ride Big South Fork,East Fork, Lone Mountain and Norris State Part on a regular basis and I have several other riding locations in and near Anderson County TN. I have a trip planned to go to Station Camp this week 8-21-09, with 4 or 5 of my friends. We are all laid back none of us are heavy drinkers or rough riders.

He Keith, my husband and I are going to the South Fork area in October, sometime in the last half of the month. We will probably stay at Timber Ridge, I am awaiting the 'bosses' to let us know when our vacation is approved. As soon as I have confirmed dates I will be making reservations. I will let everyone interested in going know what days as soon as I know.

Yah, controlling a machine and controlling a live animal are two entirely different things, I'm familiar with both and can understand how someone might feel if they're used to a machine and not familiar with the creature. It takes a lot more developed skill in training and feel to get the in control feeling on a horse. But the rewards with the horse go far beyond the ride. A young person who hasn't learned the value of relationships wouldn't understand the benefits. If all they're after is the thrill of the moment, the machine has the distinct advantage.

Even though I'm extremely mechanically inclined, I've driven on and off road machines till I'm distinctly tired of them, would rather ride a horse. The roar of an engine running through the beautiful places in nature just don't fit. But to get in tune with a horse and ride a distance through nature in a quiet undisruptive manner has a pleasure that can't be beat by any machine.

He is a pretty good sized boy, over 5' and probably weighs 180 or better. He has rode a few times. He says he feels out of control. I've had him on horses/mules that are followers and basically all he had to do was sit there and he complained the whole time. I ride 4whlrs too, we ride Windrock and Brimstone also.I like Lone Mountain, its my pick as far as riding around here. There are lots of different trails and most make loopes so you don't have to back track. You should try it sometime. Where do you guys live at?

I have a 13yr old son, that is scared to death to ride. I can't figure it out he will ride the wheels off of a dirt bike or 4whlr. We're going to South Fork this weekend, but the next time we head to Norris or something I'll let you know. East Fork is my all time favorite to! Also if you would keep me posted, I try to ride every chance I get, but through the week I work 8-5 and usually only have the weekends to ride. Stay in touch!
