It was a nice guided ride. We did enjoy the trail ride, and the sights where as always a welcome. Size is a limit so check for weight restrictions. Take your camera for sure.

I haven't been on a horse in over 30 years, and my fellow traveler had not in 15 since they were bucked off. So it was a pleasant trail ride at a affordable price. We opted for the the 45 min ride given both of our experiences. The trail guide was fabulous the staff was extremely helpful and the horses... More

Was really looking forward to a trail ride in the mountains. The property, horses and staff was good. But was disappointed with the ride. Went up the mountain trail with gradual switch-backs (as expected), but the ride offered no "open" trail for viewing and to catch a glimpse of the mountain.

The overall experience was fabulous. They took the my wife and I out without waiting for others potential customers.The terrain is very scenic throughout the Smoky Mountains. Stanley the trip guide was very informative, helpful and very energetic. He ensured we had a very nice time. Highly recommended!!

This was a very nice ride on mountain trails which our small children loved and the guide did a wonderful job making them feel comfortable. My wife and I were looking for more information/conversation from our guide but the quiet was a welcome change too.

Instead of waiting for a large group, I Loved that they took just the 2 of us on our trail ride. The horses were gentle and well mannered. It was wonderful!

Started raining as we left and had some hard downpours n some sun. Our guide Billy was wonderful and fun with kids. On the short ride there weren't lot of long distance views but we had to cross some streams that kids liked

We went on a Thursday morning and did not have to wait. Staff was very friendly and horses were very suitable for our kids. The trails were muddy after a few days of rain but there was no problems. You cross a few streams which is also fun. We purchased our ride as a combination package with Rafting in the... More

We went on a Saturday morning and there was no wait. They had plenty of horses and all of them looked like they were in good shape and well treated. We had our five year old with us and the guide was very good with him. It was a very pleasant experience, even though my wife's horse kept nibbling at... More
