Gabby loves to ride horses. She owns a horse that resides with her husband's, Shelbyville native Cade Foehner, family in Texas that she makes a trip to see pretty often. It's an American Saddlebred and Quarter Horse mix. Bubba doesn't have a good story about riding a horse. He says one threw him when he was five.

Her husband Cade plays guitar with her when she tours. She compares it with Fleetwood Mack's Stevie Nicks' and Lindsey Buckingham's relationship but it's actually good.
