The equestrian portion of Peeler Park is a simple day use facility equipped with a large gravel pull through parking lot, benches and water hoses. 8 miles of horse trails are dedicated to equestrians and are marked by posts and arrows. There are two trail heads that can be accessed either across the field or across the driveway from the parking area. The gentle footing makes Peeler Park perfect for barefoot horses and because of the smooth, even terrain and pastoral landscape I consider this trail as an easy ride, safe for beginners but beware that there is an RC airstrip on site and Nashville airport’s flight path is sometimes very low and directly over the trails.
Peeler Park is a beautiful place to give your horse some exercise, expose them to airplanes and unusual sounds, and just enjoy preserved farmland surrounded by the city.
