Our family has been traveling to Gatlinburg TN for nearly 20 years and have always wanted to horseback ride. We have had to wait for our youngest to reach min. age and this year she was. We chose Sugarland stables because it was close, and it was the best experience ever. EVERYONE was so nice and friendly. Ken the stable... More

This was not the stable our resort recommended. I am SO glad we didn't listen! The "recommended" stables we flat land, through pasture. We came to the Smokey Mountains, we wanted to see the mountains!! Got exactly what we wanted here at Sugarlands!! Up the mountain trail, across a mountain stream, beautiful and peaceful scenery. This was the first time... More

We chose the one hour ride that seemed more like 45 minutes. The horses were fine but the guide tended to be a little rude yelling at us to keep up and even stating that they train the horses to stay close and if we weren't able to do that, something bad may happen to the next rider and it...

My husband and I loved this place. We are both beginners but we felt safe. The staff were extremely friendly. We chatted with the owner while waiting for our turn and it was clear that he cares very much about ensuring his customers feel safe. We expected to be in a big group of riders, but each couple was given... More

We went on the hour and a half ride and had a good time. The horses were fine and seemed content to carry us around the muddy spring time route. We didn't see any wildlife at all but it was peaceful and worth doing. We bought the picture cd so we could print them at home but haven't yet. We... More

Great place for a ride in the Smoky Mountains National Park. One, two or four hour rides up into the woods. Ride in the hills, through streams and into the Park. We saw deer and bear during our ride.

I can't say enough good things about our experience at the riding stables! The horses are magnificent. The views are breathtaking. The staff was fantastic. Paul, our guide, was helpful and friendly and pointed out many interesting things along our trail, as well as chatted us up, which made for a fun time. The lady who signed us up and... More

My hiking buddy and I decided to do something different yesterday so we headed to the Sugarland Riding Stables. What a beautiful day. We had an awesome guide by the name of Stanley. The girls in the office and the guys out in the stables were very, very pleasant people. We even had the pleasure of meeting the owner. Thank... More

Our recent visit to Sugarland Stables was great fun, the highlight of our day. We saw wild turkeys there. The horses are well behaved and the staff are friendly. A pleasant way to see the beauty of the Smokies, I recommend this activity for every one!
