We went to the Davy Crockett Riding Stables in Townsend, Tn. Anita, the owner, was so warm and welcoming, answering all of our questions. Jimmy, our guide just made us all at ease, giving us information about the trail, about knowing the best way to buy horses at a sale, and just about his many, many years of experience riding,...

My husband and I code this place to go riding in the Smokies because we are both go riding at home and wanted something more natural and a little less of that guided feeling without the talks being overwhelmed. You definately get that with this place. Our guide was great, and our horses very well trained!! Would love to return... More

We went with some family friends and their children who had arranged this activity for all of us via some groupon vouchers paid for online. The hostess immediately upon arrival seemed very rude. Whilst they had signed up to this scheme they clearly did not want to honour the agreement. Eventually after numerous discussions we were offered the opportunity to... More

Good location ,good horses, nice ride. Hostess somewhat rude....will probably not return or recommend due to her attitude. Many other riding options available in the area that come without "attitude"...

Take the extra time to travel over to Townsend to go horseback riding at Davy Crockett"s...The ride was through the woods up and down trails and thru meadows...not around roads and cabins...very professional and personable staff..check in and out was easy as were the horses....next time we are here we will do it again!!!

We booked a 1/2 hour ride. My children were nervous about riding for the first time. The girls at the stables were very friendly and informative. It wasn't long and they were saddled up and very anxious to ride. They can't wait to go back for the hour ride!

Stopped by after a little cave exploration. It was late in the day and would have been too late for an hour ride but the staff was happy to accommodate us. Our guide was excellent and knowledgable. Our kids, 7 and 10, loved it. Trails are pretty good, not just looping around a field. Rolling terrain in the woods. We... More

This was a great place to visit and ride horses. The staff was awesome!!! We called last minute to see if they could take 4 people one afternoon of our vacation. They worked us in and were great in fitting everyone to a horse for their size and ability. The trails they took our group on were very exciting. Hills,... More

We went on a one hour ride with Davy Crockett Stables. Our guide was Jimmy and he did a nice job and took six nice pictures for our family with our cellphone. The trail ride was cool and through wooded areas which added to the overall experience. Overall good value for the price.
