About Tennessee



Tennesee has more than 200,000 horses, and 3.2 million acres of the State's 10 billion farm acres are devoted to the horse industry. That's 30 percent of the land - a huge tax base -- but it also represents a great number of people involved in the horse industry.

While Tennessee is probably best known for its namesake Tennessee Walking Horses, the State is also well known within the equine industry for mules. In fact, Maury County is considered the "Mule Capital of the World," and is the site of Mule Day, a 170-year tradition.

Bedford County tops the state with the highest number of horses and ponies, while Wilson County has the highest number of mules, burros and donkeys.

The state has more than 50 equine trails, which have become huge tourism draws.

Tennessee is divided into three regions and each region is known for its distinctive musical heritage: Bluegrass (Eastern), Country-Western (Central), and Blues (Western).

Middle Tennessee is the State's most prosperous area, with cities such as Nashville, against a backdrop of rolling hills. "Land and real estate here in Middle Tennessee is selling and bringing good prices. We are very blessed to be in this part of the country where growth is still happening and people want to live here," says Tad Craig with Craig and Wheeler Realty in Shelbyville. "We were just solid and steady."

Western Tennessee is bordered by the Mississippi River, which is generally considered the extreme northern boundary of Mississippi Delta cultural influence. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a World Heritage Biosphere Reserve and draws millions of visitors from around the region and the world annually. Covering nearly 1,000 square miles, it is home to temperate rainforests and some of the rarest and most unique plant life in North America.
