Ryan Garner always felt a connection with horses, but he felt an equally strong disconnect with many of the equestrian world’s traditional, intimidation-filled training methods. Instead of ignoring his concerns, the lifelong horse enthusiast began studying natural horsemanship, a method that encourages equine obedience through gentle rider-horse communication. Now, at RG Horsemanship, Garner shares his mission of trust, leadership, and communication during horseback-riding lessons. Through patient instruction, he helps students connect with their equine counterparts via body language and facial expressions.
Blake “Top Dogg” Rashad has spent more than 30 years earning his nickname. At age 12, Blake began training neighborhood dogs, a talent that would later lead him to prep military pooches for action during his enlistment in the Army. After his time in the service, Rashad joined the Atlanta police force to train crime-fighting canines.
Today, the expert in dog behavior hosts a weekly Internet radio show about dog behavior, local pet businesses, and canine-related news—playfully called “You Talk I Bark”—and also heads up Top Dogg K-9 Academy. At the academy, Rashad teaches dog owners the training techniques he has accumulated over the past three decades. Pooches leave six- or eight-week courses with a better understanding of how to communicate their needs to owners, and owners leave with dogs that respond quickly to commands such as “heel” and “drop my wedding ring.”
Cherokee Valley Ranch lays out an adrenaline-filled buffet of outdoor adventures propelled by gravity. Guests soar above the ranch on the gossamer wings of harness and cable across one of two legs of the zipline course. Cherokee Valley Ranch also sends riders careening down its tobogganing and tubing course. Gravity tugs thrill seekers down two frost-free chutes for snowless year-round sledding to make up for winters of sledless snowing. Other outdoor adventures include guided horseback rides, hayrides to a wooded campsite, and a cowboy-style lunch or dinner cooked over an open campfire. Children up to 17 years old can learn basic horseback-riding skills during Summer Horse Camp, including proper riding technique, grooming, and hoof-based sign language.
Nursing animals back to health since 6 years old, its safe to say Dr. Rosa Denning loves animals. But it’s her 17 years of veterinary experience that encourages pet owners to put the furriest member of the family into her care, knowing that she will use all the medical means at her disposal to keep animals healthy and happy.
Crossville Veterinary Hospital’s onsite laboratory allows Dr. Denning to diagnose and treat any number of serious health issues without the delay of waiting for offsite lab results. With pet-safe digital x-rays, she can discern the treatment best suited to keeping pets healthy while also retrieving the remote they swallowed during a breakdown in treat negotiations.
Dr. Denning also offers more routine services for cats, dogs, and household pets, providing vaccinations, checkups, and medicated baths.
