My family and I took the 45 minute ride. The horses were gentle. The Guide, Dakota, was so very pleasant and made all of us feel comfortable. Everything was clean and the scenery beautiful. I highly recommend this company.

My entire family of six that includes kids aged 12 to 20 loved this experience. This was perfect for families who have never been horseback riding before. The staff is very friendly. We had about an hour wait. Our family was in a group by itself led by a friendly guide. Our ride was 45 minutes which was perfect for... More

We went horseback riding in April and the guide was fantastic at reassuring my daughter when she became frightened. He had her ride next to him and kept her busy talking. I was impressed with how he handled the situation and she ended up loving the trip. Thank you for a wonderful ride?

Kids really enjoyed riding the horses in the mountains. The staff is excellent. My son is to young to ride so they brought out a horse just for him and let him ride a few laps in the parking lot which they didn't have to do or asked to.

Three of us chose Smoky Mountain Riding Stables because it's located inside Great Smoky Mountain National Park and they promised mountain terrain rather than a meadow or flat field. And that's what we got. The scenery was beautiful, although we didn't see any wildlife because we went riding in the middle of the day. I think you're more apt to... More

We had a great early morning ride.Our guide was friendly and the horses perfectly gentle. I checked Trip advisor before hand the reviews were correct get there early when we left it was getting crowded. Map quest takes you to the wrong location luckily we also had the brochure from our hotel. Call for the correct directions.

My family of 4 took the 45 min ride and it was plenty. Horses nice and tame and easy to control for all of us. The guide was friendly without being cheesy. The trail was basically a muddy walk through the woods. You cross a couple of shallow streams but do not walk along dangerous ridges or anything. Everyone had... More

The stable area was clean and the horse looked to be in excellent health. The staff are all willing to help and the riding was great. I would like to have been able to ride longer but we had other plans. This is a very good stable. The price was just right for families.
