We were spending thanksgiving at Wolf Laurel and wanted an activity to do with our kids and decided to do some horse riding. It had been snowing that weekend and it truly enhanced the experience. We rode through the tranquil snow covered forest with the sun peaking through the trees and deer running around on the trail ahead of us.... More

I tend to be overly critical when it comes to "guided" trail rides as I have owned horses for over 20 years and have been training for 10. The horses were safe, but not completely dead which was quite pleasant. The guide was extremely knowledgeable of the area and was very friendly. The horses appeared to be in great physical... More

Will not forget this ride through the cold mountain terrain, going through the mountain streams and hearing the water flowing pretty much the whole time we were riding, it was great. Owner Dave was personable, knowledgeable and accomadating. Very focused on the safety of both the horses and riders. The wife who has always been TERRIFIED of horses, was even... More

Was fortunate enough to ride with David Payne- the owner of the beautiful horses at Wolf Laurel Stables in the off season. Frosty was an absolute dream to ride and David could not have been more generous with his wealth of knowledge and time and patience taken to make sure I had a safe and memorable ride. To say it...

The overall experience for my husband and I was very spiritual. Being within nature, the beautiful gentle horses coupled with David and his team was nothing less then outstanding. We truly lived in every moment of our 2 hour experience, so much so, we went back the next day for another ride! Issac was our first tour guide; the 2nd... More

I enjoyed my 2 hr trail ride with Wolf Laurel Stables. My only complaint is that there are NO SIGNS telling you that the stables are located behind the Buck House in The Preserve community. Even when you get into the community and go inside the Buck House to ask where the stable is, they gesture out and up, and... More

These are by far the best stables for many miles! The horses are beautifully cared for and very fit, a must for mountain trail rides. David's first priority is always to make sure that the riders are safe and have a great experience. You can tell that he loves what he does, and all his guides have the same attitude.... More
