Brownland Farm is not only host to 10 AA horse shows steeped in tradition (with many well over 25 years old) and bursting with vibrant competition, it is also steps from some of the south's best dining, shopping, live music, and hotels!
Are you a History buff? There are dozens of civil war historic sites and tours minutes from the show grounds waiting to be explored. Do you have weekend golf warriors in the family? There is a 9 hole course less than 2 miles from Brownland so they can spend some time doing what they love. In addition to the surrounding places to visit, Brownland Farm and its sponsors welcome Exhibitors each week to parties and social gatherings.
We enjoyed spending time with you in 2016, and look forward to being a part of your 2017 memories!!!

Along with the convenience of hotels so close to the horse show, you will not be at a loss when it comes to dining choices. Here are our favorites!
Sperry's - known for a great happy hour with amazing appetizers like prime rib sliders. The atmosphere is cozy. The wine list is extensive. It is a very nice dining experience, and the owners are horse people so they welcome (actually love) people to come straight from show in their show clothes!
Cool Cafe - as convenient as it gets when you want to leave the show grounds for a delicious bite to eat, while still waiting for your division to start. You can walk or bike across the street if you'd like. Known for blending fine southern food with made from scratch cooking for a scrumptious and hearty meal for lunch and dinner. On Friday and Saturday nights, the restaurant transforms into a steak house from 4pm-10pm.
La Hacienda - in the same center as Cool Cafe, across the street from the show grounds, La Hacienda serves authentic Mexican fare for lunch and dinner. They have been a fixture in Franklin and Middle Tennessee for over a decade.
Jack and Jameson's Smokehouse - Our newest restaurant in Franklin, and located just 1 mile from the farm, this restaurant is the melding of the minds between a well known Nashville restauranteur and two creative minded actors with a love of music and good food. You never know who will drop in and there is scheduled live music every Tuesday night. If you are a microbrewery fan, there are over 23 local microbrews on tap and many of the menu items are locally grown and raised.
