Horseback Riding at Cataloochee Guest Ranch

There were many fun activities at the Cataloochee Guest Ranch including mountian hikes, wildflower walks, bird watching, croquet, badminton, horseshoes, marshmallow roasts, wagon rides, fishing, and more.  The favorite activity for AJ and KJ was horseback riding.  The scenery was spectacular from the trails into the higher elevation of  the mountain.  Our gang chose to ride in the mornings.  Children are required to wear helmets.  GJ was very impressed with the safety precautions taken by the wranglers on the trail. 

AJ's horse in the last photo above is having a snack of acorns before hitting the trail for the 2 hour ride.

I just LOVE your adventures!

What a great time you all had! I LOVE seeing all the photos! (And thanks for the info on your muffin stand that you shared today. I will have to go back now and look at my old teapot calendars for that info!)

What a very fun fall break. Love the setting and the blue checked tablecloths outdoors.
