Gravel Road into the Forest

An authentic riding experience for avid equestrians and casual riders alike!


Teresa Fensler and Katy Barrett-Alley are lifelong equestrians who created Nashville Equine Trek LLC to share their love of horses with those who want to explore our beautiful state from the saddle. They have been friends for 10 years, compete together in mounted archery, and share a love of everything weird and nerdy.

Teresa loves to share stories of her life as a lighting designer and roadie back when concerts were still a thing. Katy loves costumes and theatre but can make things super awkward with her useless true crime trivia. But who cares, you'll be on a horse. 

About Us


Our Horses

We consider our horses our family and we treat them so!

We're lucky to have five of the most wonderful, friendly, and well-trained horses to share with you. Because we want to keep our horses happy and healthy, we make sure they have enough time off the trails as well. Each horse has a limited workweek of three days, and we limit our rides so that our horses have plenty of time to rest and relax.

They are more than just trail horses!

Our horses have multiple disciplines in their history, so we will walk you through exactly how to communicate with your mount, teach you how to use soft hands, and make sure this experience is pleasurable for you and the horse. 

Guests are expected to treat the horses with respect. Any mistreatment of the horse will result in an immediate dismount of the rider and an end of the trail ride. 


We have a weight limit for each horse.

Horses can comfortably carry 20% of their body weight. To ensure a safe ride, you will be matched with the horse that is best equipped to carry you! If you exceed 200lbs, please contact us directly so we can make certain we have a horse available for you.
