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

Great ride, great scenery and great guide. (Thanks Billy) I know horses pretty well and I can tell you the horses are not starved or misbehaved.

We originally went to Sugar Land Stables and the lady there recommended that we go to the Smokey Mountain Riding Stables since I had never ridden a horse before. My husband and I were the only two in our riding party and Alan was our guide. Christy was the horse I rode and my husband rode a horse named Misty.... More

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
