This was the high light of our vacation. It was a great experience because I'm not a seasoned rider, our guide Allen was awesome, he held my 5 year old daughter's horse as he guided the group. This guy missed his calling he should have been an actor ,what a funny guy and very professional at the same time. I... More

This was my first experience horseback riding. The gentleman helping on the horse told me I should be scared about riding. Then, the horse started to run and he yelled at me to calm down and not grab the reigns or I would break the horse's jaw. We were not even 2 minutes in to the ride and the horse... More

Alan, our guide, was very interesting and entertaining. He was also very helpful getting me on my horse (I needed some extra help). The scenery was pretty and the ride was peaceful. I really enjoyed myself. Best horseback ride ever!

Riding right in the Smokys this one is my favorite. I really haven't found a bad one but the views and trails were perfect and the horses were so calm and well trained. Every one was extremely helpful. There was a new rider and they took time to really help her feel comfortable. Fret place to go riding.

My wife hasn't had the joy of riding a horse in a long time so I wanted to make sure we did this as a honeymoon gift. This place was right off east parkway & figured it would be a good thing to do. It didn't disappoint me. Beautiful scenery through the ride & the guide even pointed out some... More

Had a wonderful time riding with Smoky Mountain Riding Stables. My Guide, David has a fantastic personality and kept me entertained throughout the entire ride. Awesome views and many things to see along the trail.

We were a large group of 9 people with 6 of the group being 13 and 11 years old girls with all ranges of experience on horses. We were on our way back from our rafting trip when we passed Smoky Mountain Stables and decided to give them a try. After a brief wait (15 minutes) we were saddled and... More

Sometimes I hate pictures of myself doing an activity but I liked the pictures they took of our horseback ride on the trails of Smoky Mountain National Park. I was suprised that they took pictures they must have a hidden camera back in those woods. The trail guide was very friendly and informative. It was somewhat muddy due to recent... More

We came to the riding stable as a couple on our 10 year anniversary. We are not experienced riders, so we were a bit nervous. The staff was kind, and helpful. Our guide helped us on the horses and made us feel comfortable. I was nervous going up the mountain, but only because the horse tripped a couple times on... More

My boyfriend and I went on the 45min ride this morning with our trail guide, I think his name was Warren but I'm not 100% sure. The horses, Thumper and Prince, are very well trained and know the trails. Although we did not see any wildlife the ride was very peaceful and well worth it. Thank you Warren for a... More
