We had a great time on our 45 minute trail ride. The horses were well trained, looked like they were happy, healthy, and well taken care of. The scenery was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. My 5 year old niece went as well and it was her first trail ride. Our guide was so kind to her, made... More

Staff was very friendly. Gave my 5 year old son a ride before my wife and 3 daughters went on their 45 minute ride. Three were beginners and they always felt completely safe on these well trained horses. They couldn't have asked for a better first experience.

The people couldn't be nicer . We took the hour and a half tour and it was beautiful but I think 45 minutes would have been fine . The pictures were adorable so we bought them , the horses appear well cared for. And after they have a great picnic suggestion by a creek a few miles ahead . Would... More

We picked the 2 hour ride and thoroughly enjoyed it. Billy was our guide. He was very fun and knowledgeable, and did a great job with our 11 yr old daughter. If you are riding in the Smokies, this is the place to use! They took great pictures too!

This was a beautiful trip! The staff was super friendly and our guide Billy was AWESOME! It was our first time on horses and it was a great experience. My husband and 11 year old son loved it as much as I did! We didn't see any animals on our ride, but the guide said they usually see bear and... More

This is true trail riding! If you don't have experience I would suggest taking the 45 min ride. It is fun, the guide was informative,horses were well taken care of, but the trail is bumpy. I have rode in the Black Hills of SD and this ride was much rougher. Fun though!

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and were able to get on horses and ride right away. It was the first time on horses (not including pony rides) for my three kids (11, 9 , 7) and the staff reassured them and made them very comfortable. Billy was our guide and the kids loved him! He was very friendly and... More

When arriving the owner was yelling at his staff and the mood was not good and then I had to wait for a long while until they had enough people to ride in a group. The saddles are so worn out, that I was sore for a week. So if that is what you are looking for as fun. Go... More

Reasonably priced. We got to see great scenery. The 45 minute, 3 mile ride was perfect. Not too long, not too short. Our group of 5 had some beginner riders, and everything went smoothly. They take individual and group pictures at the beginning and end, providing lots of great pictures for purchase. We bought all of our pictures on a... More

My husband and I visited this stable as we were celebrating our Anniversary. A very hot July day we took a ride through a shaded trail. The guide pointed out that wildlife had been seen earlier in the day. Most informative and friendly. Please tip your guide....they ride this trail all day! They take your picture which is a nice....
