Wonderful ride

Great ride up in the mountains. Horse was very well behaved and responded with ease. Even a novice rider will feel comfortable on this ride.

My boys (9 and 11) went on the approximately one hour ride (they don't accept kids younger than 5 I think so I kept to my 3 yr old). The boys said it was very scenic with some steep inclines along the way. The horses are pretty tame and don't try to take over. Lots of smiling faces as I... More

We LOVED riding in the national park. The views along the trail were gorgeous! The horses were well behaved and friendly. Our guide (Joe) was great with our younger boys. Highly recommend giving this place a try. We will go back someday!

We took the 1.5 hour trip and it was amazing! We'd never ridden in the mountains but Joe took great care of us. You have not experienced the Smokys until you done it one horseback and this is the place to go!

I brought my team of Cross Country Runners (16 of us in total) and we did the 1 hour ride. The staff was VERY friendly and informative and did a great job with us on the trails. The ride was very senic and beautiful and lasted almost exactly 1 hour of riding time. We highly recommend Sugarland Stables and will... More

My dad and I visited the Sugarland Riding Stables just recently & we thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The staff was extremely kind and helpful during our entire visit. As a first time rider, I was very impressed with how well trained the horses were. With the combination of the well trained horses and our expert trail guide, my first riding... More

My 7 year old daughter and I did the 1 1/2 hour ride here on the 1st day of our vacation. Everyone was very friendly from the moment we got there. We didn't have to wait long for our ride, maybe 10 minutes. During that time my daughter pet the horses, chased the turkeys and we took some pictures. During... More

Our 20 year old daughters did the hour ride. We got there early, so the wait was very short. The horses are beautiful. The trail was great riding thru the mountains. It definitely was better than a cow pasture ride. They saw a bear and several turkeys.

Stables located right inside the park. Had a bit of a wait when we arrived. Staff friendly enough. Horses looked in good shape. Did the 60 minute trail...which was plenty of time. It is NOT flat. Rocks, mud and steep hills up and down. Horses know path very well and know where to walk. Guides not particularly noteworthy. ...did not... More

The scenery was beautiful. Have ridden in other states before and have had great experiences. We were disappointed with the lack of instruction given at the beginning for kids in group and riders in back could not hear guide throughout the ride. Horses seemed tired, one of them in our group did not want to move. Felt like they wanted... More
