Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our ride was so peaceful and cool beneath those enormous trees. We got to see turkeys and a small bear (from a distance)! This was definitely one of our favorite horseback rides and a great choice for a hot afternoon. Thank you to all the staff!!

We did the one hour ride. The girls at check in advised us to do the shortest since we'd never ridden in the mountains (we had tween girls with us). She said their trails are the steepest inside the park. It was a nice ride through thick woods, and the inclines never seemed too steep for a beginner. I was... More

I would recommend getting to the stable early - we got there at 8:50 (the stable opens at 9), and still had a 20-30 minute wait. There is a 225 pound weight limit, and if you opt for the 1.5 hour ride, your group may get its own leader (the 1 hour group had 10-12 people in it; made up... More

The trail ride takes you through the mountains going up and down. There are some places where the side drops off, but the horses are so well trained, there is no need to fear. The trail guide and all the people working there were very kind. The sights are amazing, flowering trees, etc. and we saw a black bear off... More

We chose these stables because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor and also its location close to Gatlinburg. It was just a short drive into the park and we were there in less than 5 minutes. Because they don't take reservations we went earlier in the day and also to stay out of the mid-day heat. We arrived here before... More

This is an incredible way to experience the Smokie Mountains up close and personal. The staff was friendly and kind, the horses were beautiful and well cared for. The ride was so much fun. We took the 1 1/2 hour tour and that was perfect for our foursome, 2 adult women and 2 college students. This is not a time... More

This was the first time in years I (or my husband) have been on a horse. It was the first time for our boys, ages 8 & 10. We all loved it! The staff was attentive to all of us, especially my boys. The horses appear healthy and well cared for. We did the 1 hour ride and it was... More

Never having been on a horse before, I was a little nervous and totally unsure what to do! However, everyone at Sugarland was very kind and helpful. They are well-informed and seem to enjoy doing what they do. It was a fantastic and totally unforgettable experience and I definitely recommend it for first-timers!

We arrived at 9am and were the first group out. No wait at all. It got very crowded by the time our ride was over. Our guide Paul was very nice and kept a close eye on my 7 year old son. We enjoyed some great views and the beauty that is the smoky mountains. The horses were calm and... More
