Knowledgeable and friendly. This was a great trail and you actually get to ride in the national par on mountain trails and through streams. Best Horse Trails I have ever been too. Will visit again!

This was my first time riding a horse. My wife and I had a blast! The horses are healthy and well trained. I was in the back and never heard the guide, but I didn't mind. It was more peaceful that way. We even saw a black bear!

Most of the treasure of the Smokey Mtn National Park is away from the paved roads but so few get out in the woods. This is an excellent way to get out and enjoy the park. We did the 2 hour trip which went up a bubbling creek and into the mountains for a bit. This was one of our... More

I went to Gatlinburg on my own as a stop along my way to Atlanta. After researching Sugarland online, I went to the stables on a rainy day at the end of September. No one else seemed to want to ride because of the rain but they still took me out anyways! The owner and office girls were super sweet... More

Average horse ride thru the mtns. Scenic ride and many people out. Would recommend going in the off season to avoid the crowds.

My family of four really enjoyed our hour-long ride. The horses were very gentle and tolerant of our family who had no riding experience. They also looked to be very healthy and well taken care of (a concern of mine since reviews of other stables had some bad things to say regarding the unhealthy appearance of the horses). The mountain... More

I always love riding horses so getting a chance to do so in the mountains is neat. They tell you all you need to know about how to control the horse so if you're a beginner you'll be fine. The guide didn't say a lot though and was kind of grumpy, which is why I gave it a 4/5.

We've visited the stables for enjoyable and safe rides and would go again if physically able since 1971.
