Had a really nice time on the riding trail. The staff is friendly. Enjoyed the two hour ride to the waterfall. My horse Gus was a little slow moving, but in some spots this was a plus. Husband and I both enjoyed our guide Buck. Great riding stable.

You can't beat the service or the scenery. Beautiful Smokey Mt. views with friendly guides. We rode on a rainy day and couldn't have been happier. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time.

We had the best time yesterday, our guide Buck was great!!!! We took the four hour ride, it was beautiful... the staff is so friendly. Would recommend this riding stable to horse people that love the outdoors, we are horse owners, but live in Florida so riding the mountains was such a nice change. Thanks again for making our anniversary memorable one!!!

I have rode at several stables from here to the Rockies. Never have I had such a great time riding with these guides. We rode with Tim and Tim Jr. Took the 2.5 hr waterfall ride. The scenery was awesome. I can't say enough about the Tim and Tim. If you find yourself taking this ride. Ask for them. They will make sure you have a great ride. Can't wait to go back. This by far is the best stable i have ever rode at!!
