Bridlewood Hosts Tours



Bridlewood Farm hosts several tours of their facilities every year. Jimmy Smith’s Sunshine Tours in conjunction with Senior Friends recently visited the farm. This was an educational trip for most of the group, who were fascinated with the breed as well as the aspects of artificial breeding.

They enjoyed an educational video shown at the beginning of the tour and then were introduced to Bridlewood’s World Champion stallion line-up by public relations director Tanya Hopper. The next leg of the tour was in the breeding barn, where Hopper explained the process of semen collection, pick-up and shipment and preparation for breeding mares on the farm.

The seniors left Bridlewood Farm with an education and newfound fascination with the Tennessee Walking Horse. “Bridlewood Farm will definitely become a regular stop on my tours,” commented Jimmy Smith of Sunshine Tours.

Boy Scout Troop 90 from Nashville also recently visited Bridlewood Farm. The tour was a rare treat for the group of nine city boys, who got to experience a real working farm and were educated on the Tennessee Walking Horse.

The boys were shown the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association video "Possibilities" which educated them on the history and the characteristics of the Tennessee Walking Horse. The video also introduced the boys to pleasure horses and other types of show horses.

The troop also viewed the famed Bridlewood Stallions and enjoyed visiting and having their picture made with a two-year-old filly sired by the five-time world Champion Ultra Copy named UC I’m Bonnie Blue.
