My family and I took the 45 minute ride. The horses were gentle. The Guide, Dakota, was so very pleasant and made all of us feel comfortable. Everything was clean and the scenery beautiful. I highly recommend this company.

Three of us chose Smoky Mountain Riding Stables because it's located inside Great Smoky Mountain National Park and they promised mountain terrain rather than a meadow or flat field. And that's what we got. The scenery was beautiful, although we didn't see any wildlife because...More

I saw small children riding alone, I'm not certain if I saw little ones on the same horse as a parent. I would advise to call the stable direct. It is a great, beautiful country, streams, forest, etc, very safe and easy.
