What you'll do

When you crest the hill to our property and see the stables below, you will feel like you have gone back in time. You will meet your hosts, Jeff, Nicole and April and they will introduce you to Daisy, our 2400 pound Belgian mare who will pull the carriage on your tour. You will also get to meet Daisy's unlikely best friend, Prince, our 150 pound miniature pony as well as the rest of our herd of horses. Nicole will give a brief overview of horse care and horse safety as well as an introduction to the different breeds of horses on our property.

Jeff will take you by horse-drawn carriage, around our private 52 acre farm and share pieces of history with you about the property, Townsend and the Smoky Mountains while you let your mind travel back in time to when the horse and carriage was the main method of transportation, and took the place of today's automobile.

Your experience will include the horse-drawn carriage ride and farm tour as well as light refreshments at our party barn that will be appropriately decorated for the season. You will also have plenty of time to talk, one on one, with your hosts while you enjoy our fire ring on the patio for roasting marshmallows which will also be provided. And there is always a big bucket of carrots provided to feed the horses.

We are a family run farm. April and her late husband, Reid, purchased the property in the late 1980s and began a cabin rental company and a guest farm. When April's husband, Reid, passed away in 2009, April and her Son, Jeff decided to help supplement income by introducing weddings and receptions into the business model which helped afford to maintain the property and grow the business.

Horses were always a big part of the "guest farm" experience that April and Reid had originally built. When Jeff married his wife, Nicole, in 2016, Nicole helped bring the horse activity on property to a totally new level.

Nicole is a professional Arabian horse trainer and has been a member of the Arabian Horse Association for 20 years. With over 20 years of experience, Nicole has "taken the reins" and is the head of our private horse program.

Where you'll be

When you enter our private estate and leave the rest of the world at the gate, you will feel your anxiety level drop almost immediately. As you crest the hill you will see the stables directly in front of you. Drive slowly and watch for chickens crossing the road. Follow the signs and park your car on the back side of the stables and one of our friendly staff will meet you and show you where to go from there.
