Read reviews and this stable seemed to be a great starting point. The location is easy to get to, easy to book and a great overall experience. They take you up some mountain trails with some beautiful scenery along the way. The horses were laid back and know where they needed to go. I will definitely come back for a... More

I loved this ride! It was so nice to see unique views of the mountain from horseback. Joe was our guide and did a phenomenal job. My husband and I went during a slow part of the season and did the 1.5 hr ride. It was beautiful. Very friendly service in a family-like atmosphere. Thanks guys!

Came here with my boyfriend for a weekend get away. Best stables in the area!! You see all the horses right away upon arrival. All looked happy and healthy 😊 we had David as our guide and he was great. Talked to us throughout the tour and was super funny. Gave us instruction but also let us have some freedom... More

Loved the ride through the Smoky Mtns! Joe was our guide and he was very knowledgable and enjoyable! The entire staff was very friendly and we will definitely return. This will certainly be an addition to our annual trip. Brought back awesome memories of my childhood!

We visited over Labor Day weekend. The horses all looked healthy and well taken care of. We did note that the flies were really bad, seriously bad, and a little fly spray for the horses in the paddock area would have relieved some of their suffering. Our ride lasted about an hour, there were 6 of us plus a guide.... More

Everyone in my party agreed they had never ridden a trail like this before. And all 4 of us have owned horses and ridden extensively. The horses were in great shape- the best we had ever seen at a public riding stable. Obviously well cared for. The trail wound up through switchbacks to a summit (where we really wish the... More

I took my 9 and 11 year old on a 1.5 mile ride, and we were all new riders! I was the most nervous out of the three of us, but the horses are well trained and the staff is very experienced and cool. Dave was our guide and my kids were the first two riders right behind him. He... More

We chose the 1-1/2 hour ride for our honeymoon and we had so much fun. The mountains were beautiful and seeing them on horseback is incredible. We both haven't ridden in years, but these are some of the most well trained horses I have been around. It is obvious that they know the trails and the mountains, you don't need... More
