A day off in Nashville

After 4 awesome days in the studio we had a day off to explore Nashville. Our Curiosity and love of all things animal, led us to A Cowboy Town for a Horseback riding adventure!

Our red rental car rolled up the long and windy dirt road through Cowboy Town. We parked and walked up to a big red barn where a man in a cowboy hat was saddling an Appaloosa (the spotted horses). We asked him where we had to go for the 10:45 trail-ride and he pointed us to the saloon. As we walked through the creaky wooden doors, the kind that have been seen in countless cowboy movie, it was as if we stepped through a time-portal into the wild, wild west.

There was nobody inside the saloon so we looked around and waited on the bar stools which were cleverly made of saddles.
After a few minutes Denise, the owner of cowboy town came out to greet us. We filled out a couple of forms and then were on our way. We even got to pick the kind of horse we wanted to ride. Liah opted for the native breed, the Tennessee Walker, while Kelly having less riding experience just opted for a horse that could walk.

We walked outside with Denise and she led us to a mounting block where we waited for our horses, "Express" and "Miss Kitty". Both horses were beautiful and they looked in great health. Our wrangler, Caleb soon followed and we set off into the forest for our trail-ride.
It was an hour long trip that wound around kick-a-poo lake, through lush green forest and up and down rocky hills. We walked and trotted up and down the beautiful trails and had a blast.

After our ride was through we fed our horses apples and thanks the cow-people for a lovely morning. Next time we are back in Nashville we will surely go back for a visit..only this time Im bringing a cowboy hat because I've never felt to under-dressed!

It's recommended to contact a cab dispatch company that employs digital dispatch to increase the full time for you really to obtain a taxi. Handicapped solutions are given by many cab businesses all through airport hours. Nevertheless, to ensure an available cab is likely to be readily available for your use, please contact the company of your decision for schedules, concerns, charges and other information. Subsequent is a listing of contact figures for taxis in nashville.
