A Tennessee Guest Ranch
(Sequatchie Valley B&B Guest Ranch)
just outside Chattanooga, Tennessee is an area that has remained one of God's 'best kept secrets' depicting one of the many
incredible splendors of His creation…the beautiful Sequatchie Valley. And nestled on the ridge that runs
through the Valley is a horse lover's paradise…The Sequatchie Valley B&B Guest Ranch.
views of the sun rising above the mountains in the Valley are gorgeous, with nothing to be heard except the early morning
moo's from the neighboring cattle farms, as the sound of cattle echoes across the valley floor. In the afternoon, listen
to the daytime sounds of horses hooves as they gallop in from the fields, or the voice of your riding instructor teaching
you or your family a whole new world of knowledge as you learn all about horses. At night listen to the late night howls
of the coyote across the mountain tops, as you sit on the back deck or by the pool and study the stars in the clear open skies.
During the day get into the great outdoors...with your very own Guest Ranch Horse! Learn all there is to know
about horses from the ground up! Our Guest Ranch Horses become your horses for the duration of your stay.
After a little roping & riding instruction put your new found skills to work in the wide open spaces on the trail!
Don't forget lunch & Bible Study on the trail! Build your own one, two or three night vacation for your Family Guest Ranch Stay or book a week long National Horse Camp for your child.
