We've been here many times and we love it. This time, we went horseback riding and it was a lot of fun. The staff and guides were great!

Did a 30 minute ride which was plenty for the adults. Kids loved it as well. Horses were clean and well taken care of and the workers were so nice. Highly recommend this if you are wanting to go horseback riding. They have longer trails as well but we only wanted to do 30 minutes so it was nice they... More

I give this a very good rating mostly because the pony rides are really great. The petting zoo was exciting, but it was really just the goats that kids were able to go in and pet. The fences on the other animals were all too high for young kids to be able to reach over and pet the animals properly.... More

This was a great choice for my family. I called in advance to reserve our one-hour time slot and explained that i have a hip issue. They were EXTREMELY helpful with my issue and made it as comfortable as possible for me! A very special thanks to Tim. The entire staff went over and beyond to make our first horseback... More

This place was small but wonderful! You can get into a pen with goats and another with deer. They have so many different animals to feed and pet! It is a must do for any animal lover.

There are several choices for horse back riding in the Smokey's but after doing some research we went with the Deer farm riding stables and it was the right choice. Very nice people to deal with and they made my 9 year old daughter who had never been on a horse and was very nervous feel comfortable and she had... More

I found out about this place online before we went and made it a point to spend part of our day there on 3/22/14. First, I have read reviews that state the enclosures aren't appropriate and the animals aren't take care of because a deer happened to die. Listen folks, dying is a part of a life. It sucks, but...

We had 2 hours to kill and this place definitely did the trick! $11 for adults, so the price was more than fair for what you get. I am 38 and my kids are 18 & 19 and they LOVED it!!! They both rated this better than the zoo. If you are looking for something to do, you can't go... More

We initially took our daughter here because we thought she'd enjoy it and a pony ride, but it became much more. She rode a well-trained horse (19 years old!) and loved it. We then went into the petting zoo and even my husband I were having a blast. There is even a picnic table where we had a quick snack.... More
