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

My husband and I did the hour and a half trail ride and had a blast. Billy was our guide and he was fantastic. The horses were so gentle and easy to ride. We spotted deer and even a mama bear and her cub which totally made my day!! The trail goes up the mountains and through streams as you... More

Good place to get on a horse and ride. Scenic views of the mountains and ride thru the trees. Many people were out here. Would recommend going when it is not so busy in the off season.

We stopped at the stables the day before we planned our ride.I have knee problems and asked if they had a ramp to mount the horse. She said "no" and that they would not accomodate my request. Very rude.

My husband and I stopped in on Sunday and had Stanley as our guide. He was so awesome that we came back a second time for a longer trip. He was well educatored about horses (among other things) and cared very much about our safety. We highly recommend it.

Everyone could not possibly be any friendlier. My daughter rode for her first time and they really watched out for her. She had such a great time. She was the only one in her "group" and her guide was Stanley. Stanley was as nice as he could be!!!! She was proud to announce to me at the end of the... More

My husband and I, along with some other family members, opted for the 45 minute ride, as this was my first time riding a horse and we had other plans for the afternoon. I rode a gentle horse named Buckles, and my hubby rode Misty. The ride was nice and quiet (it's a little hard to hold a conversation due... More

The ride itself was nice and the guide was very informative and helpful. Don't expect any long range views. That just doesn't happen in the Smokies except where man has intervened on the landscape. I enjoy riding and try to do a trail ride whenever I'm on vacation anywhere. The problem I had with this ride was the older man... More
