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....

Reasonably priced and the staff was super friendly. The scenery was beautiful as we horse backed through the Smoky Mountains. Horses did have to walk single file and stay in order which was a bit annoying.

We bought this trip as a package with a whitewater rafting trip. The people were real nice here. The horse were very gentle. The trails were a little muddy as it rained several times in the area. It wasn't as scenic as I would have liked, more like a ride through the woods but with some pretty big drops. The... More

Neither my husband nor I had been horseback riding before and we both enjoyed the 45 min ride. We could hear the guide up front, but couldn't understand anything he was saying (we didn't mind) - we both had a lot of fun but wished that we could have galloped instead of simply walking in a straight line.

We visited here on a Sunday. Decided to do a late morning ride. We had a family of four, my friend and I, plus the guide. Bit muddy as it had been spot raining on and off a for a few days, but we did not get muddy. The horses were great. We just loosely held the reins and sat... More

Not used to horses, so it was a little scary for my family at first. Our guide was great and knew how to put us all at ease.

We had a group of 10 adults that had rode before. Our lead guide name's was Rich. The end guide was Bill. Bill was very nice and patient but Rich was very rude, not only to one rider, but two of us. I asked him a couple of questions, and in a "smart tone" he said "Maybe you should not... More
