We did horseback riding this year for our 7 year old daughter. We arrived about 10am. We had about an hour wait. Don't expect to go in the order they check you in; they group you according to your party size. Ended up the entire family loved this experience. The trail was steep at times, but the guide was great.... More

This is a must do! The staff ...was amazing! The trail guide... Loved him! He was born and raised right there in Gatlinburg. It was so obvious how much he loves his town and what he does! The horses ...were so gorgeous and so well taken care of...You can't help but to fall in love with your horse... The trails...... More

Very beautiful ride through the mountain side, across streams on well trained horses. Facility took nice pictures of riders and you were able to view the pictures and purchase a CD if you liked.

I love horses, and thought this would be an excellent experience for my boyfriend and I to try. We got there decently early, about 11:30 or so, and the wait time was an hour long. There is one tiny parking lot, and that is it.. I had nowhere to park, so I made my boyfriend jump out and ask the... More

We had a great time on our recent trip. They put my 5 year old twins at the front right behind the guide. However, I didn't really feel like the guide did anything special. He made sure the twins were safe, but that was about it. It is a pretty ride, and an hour is a great length. The wait... More

This was our first time horseback riding as a family and it was an amazing experience. The staff was friendly, helpful and super nice! The guides were great with the horses and the riders. They were knowledgeable about the area, the horses, the trails and did a great job guiding our group. The photos they took were amazing and were... More

My overall impression is that business comes before the well-being of the horses at Sugarland Stables. I've never been horseback riding before and I won't go again after seeing how hard the horses worked. I didn't like the way the workers spoke to the horses either. We went at 4 o clock and my horse seemed very tired- I would... More

As I just looked at the multitudes of positive, happy Trip Advisor recent reviews, I neglected to look at the website for specifics. There is a 225# weight limit. I was just a *slightly* over and was still refused. I completely understand...Lesson learned for on multiple levels. All that being said, the stable was VERY PROFESSIONAL, reasonable prices, fantastic location,... More

I called them and it was a little unclear what times the tours actually started, but we eagerly decided to just show up in the afternoon. We walked up to the desk and were told that we could make the 2:00pm tour for an hour. Just like 'island time', there is likely a Smoky Mountain time and the tour ended... More

We had a group of 18! Our guides were wonderful! They placed the children in the safest places in line. They were very familiar with the horses and gave excellent instructions. The view was amazing! We all had so much fun and the pictures are so great! Highly recommend!
