Doc, I ditto what Adrienne says. I live in Maury Co. in TN and a lot of my friends from your area come and ride with us. On the Events check out the Maury Co. Mounted Ministry ride for July at Primm Springs. It is a really beautiful ride with lots of water crossings to play in. About half will be riding quarter horses or other non-gaited breeds. Come have fun and play for awhile.
Blessings, Linda Grajewski
OkDoc, you have to lighten up the work schedule and come ride with us here in Tennessee! It is not quite as humid here and there is usually a good breeze, too. The views are pretty awesome also! Let me know if you want to come to Tennessee and ride, I know some really nice people and some great places to go. Welcome to the site and happy trails!
