Full Moon Moonlight Tour

The full moon silvers the landscape, highlighting the mists in the Clinch River Valley and outlining the mountains and ridgetops. You marvel at the beauty of the landscape as we ride through our hayfield and pasture on the top of River Ridge with owls hooting and maybe a coyote serenading the moon as the horses' harness chains jingle gently in the night. On a clear night you see from the Cumberland Mountains to the Smokies and the end of Clinch Mountain.

We will be offering Horse Drawn Moonlight Tours in September, October, November and December during the full moon. The tours will start nightly at 7:30 p.m., except on Wednesday when they will start at 9 p.m. For the cool months dress warmly and we will provide wool blankets for your lap. There will be hot chocolate and a camp fire afterwards to warm your fingers and toes.

Please call for reservations.  The ride will be about 20 minutes. The cost is $4.00 per person with children up to age 5, sitting on an adult's lap, for free. The tours will be cancelled if it is raining or snowing. See our home page for dates.
