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

After reading the other reviews, I was determined that they were city folk or uppity people. However, I will verify that the place was really dirty. And yeah, I mean it's a stable, but the public restroom in the building was absolutely filthy, the dogs all cowered around with mange, and you could see ribs on almost every horse. First... More

Please save your money and go someplace else. The staff was friendly but beware of the old man running the place. The trails were unkept and narrow. My daughters horse was very restless and wandering. You have to push yourself off trees and get legs scratched up. The guide took us on a path that was never ridden and my... More

I purchased the groupon before reading the reviews. So I was a little worried. But we tried it anyway and were well pleased. The place is older and outdated. But it was clean and all of the horses were well fed, good temperment, and in good health. Ww had an awesome guide named Josh. He was knowledgeable and extremly helpful.... More

My family of five purchased a Groupon since we were in pigeon Forge on a vacation. The location is well off the beaten path and as we pulled up we started to rethink it. But none of us never went horseback riding and was willing to give it a try. We were skeptic of the place amd the dogs walking... More

My husband and I purchased a groupon before we left home because we knew we wanted to go horseback riding when we visited the Gatlinburg area. On our way to the stables I was reading the reviews and I starting having second thoughts. I was pleasantly surprised ! My husband and 3 kids, ages 6-12, had a great time. It... More
