My boyfriend and I went on the 45min ride this morning with our trail guide, I think his name was Warren but I'm not 100% sure. The horses, Thumper and Prince, are very well trained and know the trails. Although we did not see any wildlife the ride was very peaceful and well worth it. Thank you Warren for a... More

Its fun to do as a group - family. We enjoyed the 45 minute ride and the staff was very friendly. You may want to call ahead for any wait time.

Went riding here last week for the first time. I enjoyed the ride very much, scenery was beautiful, trail guide very friendly and so were the other staff. Thought it was nice how they take pictures for you, prices for them not to bad. The only issue I had was with the older man(manager), someone needs to give him a... More

I went with my seven year old. I was raised around quarter horses and rode frequently in my younger days. The person that helped me with my horse put the stirrups too short, but I didn't say anything because I figured it wouldn't matter for 45 minutes. Joe was our guide. He said he was normally at Sugarland's stable, but... More

Today I went to the stables for horseback riding and this place is the bomb! The workers there were super nice and the ride in the mountain was great. The guide always made sure everyone was okay on the trail. They were always great help when getting on and off the horses. Trust me being 5'5 and getting on a... More

For a complete change of pace from the tourist attractions, be sure to make time for this lovely excursion. My daughter & I got our tickets as part of a very reasonable package deal with Rafting with the Smokies. Frankly we would have paid full price. Our horses were as gentle and manageable as one could imagine. Our guide was... More

They do not take reservations, which was great for us! We stopped in on a whim and within minutes we were on the trail! Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw a bear off in the distance which was really neat. The price was reasonable at $25/person for a 45 minute trail ride. They took pictures before... More

This was my first horse ride ever and overall I would say we had a great time. We decided to go for the 1 & 1/2 hour ride which costed us about $90 plus tax. They took pictures of before we got on the horses and once we got on the horses. They helped us get on the horses and... More
