Our family with grandsons experienced the nicest trail ride today. The stable owner ,David, took individual time with all 11 of us to make our riding experience exceptional. One grandson was a bit apprehensive but after David assured him everything would be great and had his ranch hand Kayla lead him in the front of our pack on our hour... More

I took my daughter, step daughter, son, and daughter in law riding the week of July 4. Ages are 14, 16, 20 and 20. We did a mid morning ride. I was expecting the usual trial horses that barely acknowledge they are carrying a rider. That was not the case. These animals were beautiful and had their own personality and... More

My boyfriend found wolf laurel stables off google as a surprise on a weekend trip to Asheville. We had no expectations but when we arrived we were greeted by the owner, David. David is truly a genuine, down to earth North Carolinian! We decided last minute upon arrival to extend our ride from 2 hours to 3 hours - simply... More

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
