The was my daughters' and husband's first horseback riding experience..and it had been several years for me. The guide was super friendly, knew the area well, and kept my youngest close to make sure she was comfortable the whole time. She even asked if she wanted to trot (she didn' t) and made sure her horse stayed slow through some... More

After researching area stables, I decided to make an appointment for an hours ride. Had not ridden in years, so I approached it with a bit of anxiety though some of this was relieved when I called to make the appointment and talked with one of the guides. The horses all seem healthy and content though in just a bit... More

We enjoyed the ride but our lady guide was a bit 'whip happy' with her "lazy" mare. She was forever kicking the mare on and using her reins as a whip. Bullied animals turn off to such abuse, and it is abuse. The mare went no faster when the lady stopped her nagging, so I'm guessing the rider needs a... More

Before leaving I called and checked out reviews on several stables. I decided this one was the one we were going to try. I called a few days before and scheduled our time slot. My daughter who is 11 had Snowy. My 4 year old daughter and I had Magic. My husband had Blue. None of us had ever been... More

My family and I wanted a horseback ride away from the hustle and bustle of town. Davy Crockett Stables was perfect. We rode up and down hills, through the trees and it was so peaceful! If you are looking for more "touristy" things to do around a stable this is not the place. However, if you want a great ride... More

This was my first time in east TN and my friend and I were looking forward to a relaxing weekend in the mountains. We just wanted to hike and see some wildlife. What better way to do that than on horseback? I must have read a thousand reviews about 7 or 8 stables in the area and this place had... More

We took the 1 hour ride and it was just my husband and myself on the ride. The horses are well trained, gentle and well taken care of. The ride was nice and we traveled back through the wooded area behind the stables. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a nice safe stable for a good trail ride.

Five stars for the riding experience, but the customer service and instruction were a big minus. We came here as first-time riders, not knowing what to expect. On the website, it said that walk-ins are welcome so we decided to just drive over there, as we were staying nearby. We were "greeted" by an extemely grumpy person, who later also... More
