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 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

My 8 year old daughter was bouncing with excitement to go for he first trail ride. The staff, guide and the horses were great. Since it was my daughters first ride we went for the shorter ride.

This was my first ride of this nature and I was pleased. The guide was great, giving various warnings about different hazards, as is expected especially when paying. We were shown different items left by settlers of the mountains. I am not around horses much and did not grow up riding but did enjoy the ride. There are a few... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The trail was scenic and not just a flat ride but the horses were well trained and did most of the work for you. Very enjoyable!

Staff was very friendly . My 8 year olds first ride had a smile on her face the whole time. Helmets for little ones were available which was a nice plus. Trails were nice rustic but well maintained. fees for pictures the best around. A must do while in Gatlinburg
