Open all year round unlike other stables in the area (make appointments ahead of time in winter though). My 4 year old had a great time and was laughing hysterically. We don't have any experience with horses and it was no problem for us. Horses are calm/follow mr.bark (guide) up and down trail and only move when he moves. Mr.... More

We had a great time horseback riding with Goodlow. The horses could be a little unruly but they're horses. Goodlow was awesome with them. My mom's horse decided it wanted to head back to the stable and Goodlow took off through the woods to get her when she couldn't get her horse to turn around! 😂 She wasn't scared and... More

Pleasant ride up to a scenic overlook. Horses are well-behaved. Owners hospitable. Maximum of seven guests. Just a few minutes from Cherokee.

We had a great time horse back riding at End of the Trail. Goodlow, the owner, was a very efficient and trustworthy guide. He doesn't talk much so it's not as much of a tour. But when he did talk, I loved listening. The views from the top of the hike are amazing! This is our honeymoon and my hubby... More

This was just the perfect horseback riding adventure for us. I rode Pepper Jack and my husband rode Jesse James. Goodlow, owner and guide, was great and made me feel comfortable. The ride up the trail was peaceful and pretty and the view at the top is gorgeous! We will return!!

So first of all they did an excellent job of accommodating me as I was doing a lot of traveling and had changed my timeline a few times but I got in exactly when I wanted to, so I was very appreciative of that. They also gave me a Military discount which I thought was cool too. I chose this... More

Rode Bud, Pepperjack, Billy the Kid, and Cimarron. Trail was peaceful and views throughout__at top, great view of smokey mountains and Clingman's Dome which is the highest peak in TN. Mostly shaded which was nice in the heat. Owner and guide very enjoyable. Highly recommend! Ps. A little trotting here and there too which was fun.

Great experience, highly recommend! Owner, Guy took the time to ease 8 year olds fears of riding. She was ready to stay behind but he led her around a little until she was okay. Horses were perfect for each of us. 66+ grandparents and 8 and 10 yr. old girls. Horses trotted a little on the way back. The girls... More

We drove half an hour to get here, and it was worth it. It was a nice ride up to a good view. The horses seemed well kept and were well behaved on the trail, not a bit of trouble. Recommended.

We were staying a t a nearby KOA campground and they shuttled us to the End of the Trail Horseback Riding, Both my husband and I ride horses but not to often. Our experience started with a fair charge for a hour ride. The options were 1 hour or 2 hours and 15 minutes. Sometimes Horseback riding can be a... More
