Tickets were supplied as a bonus for our cabin rental in Gatlinburg. The ride was very relaxing and beautiful. It was my two boys ages 8 and 10 and I (47 mom). All of our horses had their own personalities, but they were all very laid back easy going too. My boys were thrilled to ride horses and I was... More

We have four kids, ages 4-12. Everyone loved this! Tour guide was great with the kids. The two older kids had their own horses and my husband and I double rode with the younger ones. Highly recommend!

My daughter, myself and my mother visited while vacationing from Florida for Spring Break, I cannot say enough good things about this place!! Thank you to Richie for providing my 7 year old with a great first riding experience! She enjoyed singing "I'm so fancy" with you! Although I am very afraid of horses, I got up there and did...

This ride takes you through the smokies. This was my kids 1st time horseback riding. Only down fall is they did not provide the kids with helmets. We saw a waterfall and some wild turkeys. You cross some streams. The horses are very well trained and our guide Cody was great.

I enjoyed these horse stables well enough. I did the horse ride with an 8 year old and my two parents. It was a nice ride along a path up through some mountains I believe. If this is your first time riding and you just want to slowly ride through a trail this is a great path, but I personally... More

So my family came in from Ohio and wanted to go riding. We have been to several locations here so wanted to try a different location this time round. This was the best ride ever! Straight into the National Park and up the side of a mountain; what a blast! Everyone who comes to the Smokies should experience this.

Lady behind desk can be abrasive, but also helpful. Carriage ride lasted maybe 15 minutes instead of 30 advertised. Horseback rides lasted 45 minutes instead of an hour. Our driver and guide were both nice, personable, and helpful so we had a good time. Horses seemed to be well cared for...

We stopped by on a whim late in the afternoon. A group had just finished and we were on the horses in 10 min. Alan our guide was super nice and very informative. We had a great time! Great value.

My husband and I visited the area for our 5th anniversary. We knew we wanted to horseback ride in the mountains! We decided on an early morning ride as it was supposed to rain later in the day. They told us even if it rained they would still take us out riding! I rode Christy and my husband rode Blue... More

We were on vacation in October, and I wanted to take my sons horseback riding for the first time. Many places wouldn't allow them to go because our youngest was only 5, but we were able to go here and I'm SO glad that we did! They were professional, friendly, and kept a great eye on all of us to... More
