Coffee County Leadership In Progress Tours Bridlewood



Coffee County’s Leadership in Progress recently toured Bridlewood Farm, one of the walking horse industry’s top breeding facilities. Tennessee’s Backroads Heritage board member Janice Bowling and immediate past president of Coffee County Leadership In Progress, Janice Bowling spear-headed the tour and was thrilled to bring the group to Bridlewood. “This group is from all over Coffee County and for some of them, it’s their first opportunity to see what’s in their own back yard,” said Bowling. “They are finding out what a fantastic area we live in and I wanted them to learn about the Tennessee Walking Horse as a part of our heritage and economy.”

The group enjoyed their personally guided tour, given by farm co-owner Larry Lowman and Bridlewood Public Relations Director Tanya Hopper. The highlight of the visit was getting to meet and make their photograph with several of Bridlewood’s impressive line-up of World Champion stallions.

According to Bowling, the group loved the tour, especially getting to meet and touch the stallions, but were also fascinated by the production aspect of the farm. The group was amazed at what a business breeding really is. They had no idea that a facility in Shelbyville shipped semen all over the United States and even some foreign countries.
