It was a great ride for our family - when we ask the kids, this is usually what they bring up as their favorite part. Scenery is great. Our guide was a lot of fun and good with the kids. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Our son and his three children, aged 6, 9 and 13 had their first riding experience here and they loved it. Every one of the staff was courteous and acted professional. In fact, they were super accommodating and kind to all, especially to the children. This is a great stable for riding.

Sugarland's is the best horse riding experience in town. They make you feel extremely comfortable and make the whole experience great. The horses are extraordinarily well trained and it's really easy. You just follow the guide single-file through different sections of the woods, depending on which package/trail you choose. The picture packages they have are worth the money too as... More

Friendly staff, beautiful horses and wonderful trail. We got there early and they were kind enough to get us on our way as soon as they opened.

Sugarland Stables gave my family and I the best experience ever!!! Out of my whole family I was the only one experienced in riding and the staff was so patient with my family with their questions and concerns. Especially with my 15 year old daughter who asked "if the horse lies down do I lie down with it?" Lol...The horses... More

I love that I had this experience. I had never gone horseback riding before. At first I was going to go to the Smoky Mountain Riding Stable, but I read bad reviews about it, so I decided to go to Sugarland. The tour guides were great. My sister had problems on the trail and she received help every time. I... More

Our family of 5 did the one hour trail ride. We found the horses to be good and seemingly well cared for. We were in a group with about 9 people and two guides, Robert at the front and Andrew third from last. There was a little bit of flatland trails then quite a bit of uphill and then obviously... More

We like that this stable is located inside the Smoky Mountains National Park. We first rode with them on their 2 hour trek in 2010. On that trek, we left at 9 a.m. and we immediately saw a small black bear. On this excursion, we left at about 10 a.m. for an hour and a half ride. The longer rides... More

We went on a one hour ride today with our 7, 9, 11 & 13 year old kiddos who were all first time riders. We arrived shortly after 9:00am and only had to wait a few minutes before our ride began. The ride was AMAZING and every one of us was smiling from ear to ear the whole time! The... More

Was a good value for a hour ride. My 5yr old really enjoyed the ride and the guide always kept a watchful eye on him helping mom to stay calm. Just a good trip that was easy but you still had to work a little to stay upright which always keeps you engaged. Would do it again, but this time... More
