We got a Groupon Deal for $29 for 2 people for an hour long ride. Our guide, Cindy, was cordial and knowledgeable. We were the only ones on the tour, which was FANTASTIC. Now, that being said, the main building is sketchy. Dirty, smelly, and a LOT of animals inside. Keeping in mind that most of your time is spent... More

Friendly and welcoming people.I would rate that as above average! Our guide, Cindy, was absolutely awesome! The facility itself was dirty and somewhat creepy. I would rate that aspect below average. Our ride was enjoyable despite there being no lakeview at that time of year (Nov. 2014). Stable was further from Gatlinburg than we anticipated. Took us nearly an hour... More

Ditto on the previous reviews. Extremely dirty, the horses were malnourished. We also purchased the groupon. We took a 2 hour ride. The "experienced" guide got lost. Stated she has never gone on a 2 hour ride. I noticed how malnourished her horse was and inquired as to why. The horse kept relieving itself during the ride. The guide stated... More

My husband and I went Saturday afternoon and after looking around for about 10 minutes (too long), we walked out!! The place is horrible, disorganized, and filthy. The dog fell down the steps as we were pulling up. It looked like it was on it's last leg. The horses didn't look much better. They look malnourished, tired and worn out.... More

I wish I would of read these reviews before I bought this groupon. My boyfriend and I pulled up and started laughing like omg this is not the place. Unfortunately it was, the place was so dirty, dogs ribs were showing and looked like it was dying. The horses looked neglected and there hip bones were popping out, and none... More

Jim married my husband and I on october 20, 2014. We couldn't have asked for a better service. The staff was very friendly and cared so much to make our day special. The guide we had for our honeymoon trail ride was the best. She took pictures of us throughout the ride. Will go back for another trail ride next... More

This was the worst experience I could imagine. First the Groupon said an hour ride...they only took us out for 15 minutes! We were very disappointed. We were very optimistic about it at first even with the trash, unprofessional staff and owner, and horrific conditions of the horses! We though if it ended up being a good ride we would... More

Before I posted this, I read some of these other reviews. I understand that thInga could be different in the span of a month or two, but I really had a good time! We had 11 people and didn't have many problems. A couple of horses stopped once or twice to graze, but none looked starved. They actually looked well... More

The guide was friendly, staff was friendly & accomodated us in every way. Stables were not very far from town but were definitely a change in pace from busy pigeon forge! We enjoyed our 1 hour trail ride & may return, a 2 hour ride is also available & they even do weddings & vow renewal that looked to be... More

Being a horse owner myself I can tell you these horses are in bad condition. They are not trained properly for the trails we went on. They will turn, eat, try to rub you off on trees and anything else they can find because they do not want to be ridden. The saddles are really in bad shape, the whole... More
