Alabama Mountains by Horseback

See the Alabama Mountains region by horseback on a two-night guided weekend adventure offered by 3 H Stables, Huntsville, AL. You'll be paired with the right horse based on your level of riding experience.

Then, departing from Huntsville, you and an experienced guide will set off on horseback. Included are two to four hours riding daily (the operator says let your "bottom" be your guide, as beginners may not wish as much riding each day) as well as nature walks along quiet forest trails and two hours of riding instruction.

Cowboy campfire meals and tents also are provided; just bring a sleeping bag. Cost is $250 for the Friday and Saturday night trip. Call 256-883-8615 or visit www.3hstables.com.

Saddlebred Museum Recognizes Black Horsemen

From the post-Civil War period to the 1970s, black Americans contributed significantly to the success of the American Saddlebred Industry. They served as caretakers, trainers and competitors.

But rarely did these men receive any recognition. For Black History Month earlier this year, the American Saddlebred Museum at Lexington's Kentucky Horse Park introduced a new exhibit dedicated to these dedicated professionals.

Those interested in African-American heritage activities have plenty of time to travel to Lexington for the exhibit. This special exhibition will continue throughout the next year.

So take a look at the exhibition, its features and how to get more information.
