All 4 kids (aged 1 thru 4) had a great time. The staff was pleasant & friendly. The pony rides were an absolute delight for the kiddos!

We had a great time - the highlight of the trip was the visit with the goats, and my two kiddos being able to hold the baby ones. I felt the staff was very kind and knowledgeable, and all the animals seemed very happy and well taken care of.

Nice staff and animals. Our kids really enjoyed the interactive nature of the park as they were able to go into some of the pens. They also enjoyed the pony rides. Our only complaint was the conditions in which the animals were kept. The pens were quite small and there wasn't a blade of grass to be seen inside those... More

This was our first visit. Our almost 2 year old had a blast. Very friendly staff and animals. Very affordable. Closer to Pigeon Forge area than you think!

This is a great place for horseback riding for the beginner, scared, and children. Our guide was excellent and the horses were great! I'm scared of horses, but I wasn't scared of these horses! The staff is wonderful as well!!

We've been to the Petting Zoo a few times over the past years, we make it part of our routine when we visit Galtinburg. This is the first time we went to the riding stables. Just like the zoo it is a laid back atmosphere and very family friendly. Safety for everyone around the horses is the primary concern of... More

My girlfriend and I are both bigger people (over 200 lbs), and thus we were a little concerned about being able to go horseback riding. We arrived early and asked one of the helpful people right up front about it, and she got us set right up with a reservation! The horse stable has a couple of larger horses that... More

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
