While vacationing in Gatlinburg, Tennessee we decided to take a family day trip horseback riding in Smoky Mountains. It is such a gorgeous place.
We’ve owned horses for a few years, but it is different to ride among the mountain terrain compared to our land in Texas. The trails are a steep incline and decline with a beautiful view, unlike the flat country back home.
The trail ride was exactly what I expected – each horse following one after another at a steady pace. Although several of us in our family are experienced riders, we knew we were not renting horses but instead going on a guided tour. This worked best for having little kids with us.
After the ride we played at the petting zoo for a while and ate our free ice cream. It was a fun adventure!
