"We haven't been to Tuscaloosa in three years and seeing everyone come out and hang with us while we're here is great," Christner said. "We hope to see more people come to the rest of the events we have planned."

On Thursday, the horses will be at Piggly Wiggly, located at 641 Bear Creek Road on Highway 69 South from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.

On Friday, the group is hosting a First Responder Cookout at 504 21st Avenue. The event is open to first responders and their families and will take place from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.

The tour will conclude Saturday, when the horses will ride through downtown Tuscaloosa and drop off Budweiser Beer to several local bars, including Innisfree Irish Pub, World of Beer and Nocturnal Tavern.
