horseback riding for intermediate rider

I am visiting Kentucky over Memorial Day and am interested in riding at a farm that does not offer just "nose-to-tail" walks. Anyone familiar with Big Red Stables? I'd like to stay at Shaker Village so close to Harrodsburg or Lexington would be great. Thanks!

ah...I'm not so sure about farm like that though because one I have went before it is nose-to-tail walk kinda thing. If you are intermediate rider then yes I have heard about Big Red Stables: Here I will give you link to places that have horse riding.

http://parks.ky.gov (national park, they have horse riding to see different places)

http://www.shakervillageky.org (This is pretty cool too, close to Big Red Stable)

http://www.bigredstablesky.com/ (that's the big red stable, I have heard of this stable for a while but I'm just a beginner horse riding, well worse than beginner lol)

I will give you another one, it might not be that famous but it is also good for intermediate rider

I hope this helps you more or less. Enjoy your holiday!

I live in the LBL area. The LBL (Land Between the Lakes) area offers Wrangler's Campground that also has a day use area if you want to ride but not camp. Wrangler's does rent horses but only for guided trail rides. If you plan to bring your own horse, the trails are all marked and you can get a map at the entrance station. There are always friendly, helpful people you'll meet on the trails that will be more than happy to assist you, give you directions,etc. My boyfriend and I have been riding there for years, about every weekend. We always run across new riders who we gladly direct or answer questions about the area. It is a beautiful place with so many trails and so much to see.
