    near Clarksville,TN newbie!

    Hello,
    I am not really new to the Forum, but I have not been very active.
    Looks like I have the opportunity to tend to the horses more...

    I was wondering if anybody else is in this area and/or can recommend some horse people. Maybe a clinic to go to meet people or somebody that knows good trail riding areas around the Clarksville, Dover, TN area.

    I have an older horse and a "younger" one that is just starting up.
    I am experienced and am also a riding Instructor for Motor Therapeutic riding.
    Hope to find a few people around this area...

    Seems your pretty close to me. I like going to LBL to ride, and close to Nashville where they have the steeplechase, are also some nice trails in the park. The only clinics I know of are working Cow horse, not sure what type of riding you do

    Welcome from CO! Best of luck in your search for clinics... A good way to hear about them are from local riding academies and tack shops, depending on what you're looking for.

    I've been to Pennyrile and go to LBL regularly (when the gov hasn't shut it down, anyway).

    Thank you for the posts... good to see other horse people around here...
    I drove through the LBL, just to get a view of it. Fort he ones that spend time there, Can you only ride on the Wrangler camp trails or is there more areas you can go riding on? In other parks I know you cannot ride on every trail, but there are designated ones as well as moving fairly freely in the area. Is this possible in LBL?

    I also tried to contact one of the local saddle clubs, but I just got one reply several weeks ago, my recent email to the club is yet unanswered.
    I was hoping for some events or something to go watch and maybe attend.
    I so far failed to find a tack shop... to be on the look out for clinics...
    Style wise, well this is a bit tougher... I am not a die hard competitor, and the competitions I did, were not a formal Dressage or Western event. I enjoy the skill levels , but more compiled in a all around horse, kinda like needed for a cowboy race, fun competitions etc... broadly called Pony Games, Rider rallies/games, Trail rally...etc. So usually I go where my horse takes me....

    Wow, that's quite a ways to a tack shop...lol Didn't think they would be so sparse...

    Who is a good farrier down here?
    I am looking for one that is good at his job of course, knowledgeable with different breeds and advances in his field- maybe even horse boot fitting, good at barefoot trimming and pays attention to the frog. Also courteous and reliable. Stands to his word and work. And of course is kind to the horses- don't want a farrier that is slapping my horses or laying into them with a rasp or anything. And if possible reasonably priced...

    'OutOfTheLoop' you crack me up.... LOL
    You mind sending the name via PM.... I tried one today...didn't blow me of my feet... but he was very kind and nice to the horses...

    If I ask about a good (horse) Vet do I get the same answer, nothing great but ok. Take an older Farm Vet,too. Not opposed to using home remedies and not getting shots for everything....
