A friend and I took a day to escape the daily grind and booked a 3 hour ride at Wolf Laurel Stables. We came in from Hwy 26 through the Wolf Lodge resort. We saw several deer as we made our way to the stables (which we drove by the first time because there wasn't an obvious sign pointing to the stables, but that was the only snafu).
We were a little early for our appointment so, after we checked in, the host directed us to a small enclosure that had a swing and rockers. It was a nice place to relax and unwind after ~ a 2 hour drive.
Our guide, David, was very personable and friendly. He also owns all the horses at the stables. Our horses (Babe and Copper) were well cared for and healthy.
This was my friend's third time on a horse. You could mount the horse from the porch which made getting on the horse much easier for those who are a little tentative. David made sure that she felt comfortable and took his time with helping her to get on and off her horse. We had horn packs that held our cameras and water within easy reach.
The trails were nice and wide (a little rocky at times) but the horses are surefooted. We crossed several small streams. We had the trails to ourselves. David was glad to tell us a little about the history of Wolf Laurel. He paced the ride well and gave the horses (and their riders) plenty of breaks.
We both had a great time and would recommend Wolf Laurel stables to friends.
