On Friday morning, locals and visitors experienced a different kind of traffic on their morning route along the Pigeon Forge Parkway.
Around 7:30 a.m., approximately 20-30 horses escaped from Five Oaks Horseback Riding Stables in Pigeon Forge, across from the area’s largest outlet mall. They were seen running down the Parkway, causing quite a bit of traffic.
Officers with the Sevierville Police Department and Pigeon Forge Police Department were immediately in route to assist.
