We made it to Seviervill Tennessee on Sunday evening. The drive down was hard on all of us, it took 10-12 hours. We checked in, had dinner then we went to Walmart for grocery shopping. We are in a resort that has a two bedroom, full kitchen, small washer and dryer and 2 full bathrooms.
Yesterday we went horseback ridding. Monkey was in Heaven! They gave all the girls compliant horses. Monkey's horse was tethered to the guy who guided us. Pumpkin followed her, then Lil Angel. Someone was behind her then was me. All the girls did good. Lil Angel had some problems because when we stopped the horses wanted to turn to a side of the trail and eat. Lil Angel panicked one time and she couldn't get her's to stop eating and walk but other that that no issues.
My horse on the other hand. When they put us on the horse they took us to a side where the horse could drink before we went on the trail. I should have known mine would be a problem because she stood next to the horse that walked behind me. They gave us brief direction and told us to keep our horses 10 feet apart. The guide stopped us just as we got going to make sure we all was together. I couldn't get my horse to stop, she walked right up to the horse in front of us. The horse got MAD and nipped at mines neck, the girl on the horse screamed. I screamed because I realized this horses mouth was right next to my leg and I didn't want to get bit. I must have pulled to my left because my horse jerked to the left which was at the edge of the mountain, she then went up tot eh horse behind me and cuddled her. I saw the look on the face of the lady behind me and I panicked! I started calling for help. The guide pulled my horse back I saw he moved Lil Angel in front of me.
Off we went and a few times my horse stopped to eat. Each time I had some trouble but I was able to get my horse going. The last time she went off the trail to eat, yelled for help because it looked like I was going off the side of the mountain. The guide came galloping towards me on his house, my house was too busy eating she never saw him and it scared her. She turned her back and then I was able to get her going again. I swear I thought I was going over the edge about5 times. This may sound funny but I am going to take more pictures so you can see the mountains out here. My husband took some pictures but he didn't go so you can't see much of our mountain ride.
In the evening we looked around at see all of them at home. a huge Christmas store then went up into Smokey Mountain National Park, we got out of our car and looked at the sky. It's amazing, there are so many stars in the sky! We can't see so many at home.
I will post more tomorrow.
