Or maybe you'd rather while away a summer afternoon on the lovely long screened porch with a good book and a glass of lem...

These big plastic fleas and ticks are hanging above the reception desk at Dogwood Animal Hospital in Jamestown, Tennessee, a vivid reminder that spring is here and it's time to start thinking about protection for pets. Veterinarian Cindy Johnson has a very busy full-service practice, with a const...

I keep writing about how the Big South Fork is rugged country and trail riders in the backcountry need to be prepared for any eventuality. I personally have never had a problem but I try to think of what emergencies might occur and to be prepared to deal with them. Cell coverage is iffy-so you ca...

Yesterday was a glorious early spring day here at the Big South Fork in Jamestown, Tennessee so I packed a lunch and set off with a riding buddy to explore a trail that we had not been on before. We had a good map and the Ridge Top trail is well marked, so where did we go wrong? We obviously mis...

Trees are barely budding but, in a month, when the leaves have unfurled, it will be too late to get a good sense of the topography or to site buildings. P...

Additional Information

I live minutes from the Cumberland Trailhead into Big South Fork National Park, in Spruce Creek Acres, an equestrian community that abuts the park itself. Horses are a major part of daily life here and this is a very active, supportive horse-oriented community. It is a gift to work as a realtor here, listing horse properties and selling horse properties to horse people! We joke that I've probably done more real estate on horseback than off! If you want to "live where you love to ride," let me help you find YOUR Big South Fork horse property .
