So my family came in from Ohio and wanted to go riding. We have been to several locations here so wanted to try a different location this time round. This was the best ride ever! Straight into the National Park and up the side of a mountain; what a blast! Everyone who comes to the Smokies should experience this.

Lady behind desk can be abrasive, but also helpful. Carriage ride lasted maybe 15 minutes instead of 30 advertised. Horseback rides lasted 45 minutes instead of an hour. Our driver and guide were both nice, personable, and helpful so we had a good time. Horses seemed to be well cared for...

We stopped by on a whim late in the afternoon. A group had just finished and we were on the horses in 10 min. Alan our guide was super nice and very informative. We had a great time! Great value.

My husband and I visited the area for our 5th anniversary. We knew we wanted to horseback ride in the mountains! We decided on an early morning ride as it was supposed to rain later in the day. They told us even if it rained they would still take us out riding! I rode Christy and my husband rode Blue... More

We were on vacation in October, and I wanted to take my sons horseback riding for the first time. Many places wouldn't allow them to go because our youngest was only 5, but we were able to go here and I'm SO glad that we did! They were professional, friendly, and kept a great eye on all of us to... More

My husband and I did the hour and a half trail ride and had a blast. Billy was our guide and he was fantastic. The horses were so gentle and easy to ride. We spotted deer and even a mama bear and her cub which totally made my day!! The trail goes up the mountains and through streams as you... More

Good place to get on a horse and ride. Scenic views of the mountains and ride thru the trees. Many people were out here. Would recommend going when it is not so busy in the off season.

We stopped at the stables the day before we planned our ride.I have knee problems and asked if they had a ramp to mount the horse. She said "no" and that they would not accomodate my request. Very rude.

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
