This one hour ride through the beautiful mountain was fun! The staff and guide were professional and friendly. The horses very tame as well. Well worth it!

My husband, myself, and our adult daughter took the one hour horse ride. It took us up through the forest, through a short tunnel, and through a creek. It was a very nice ride, and made for a memorable day. Our tour guide was friendly and told us a lot of information about the area while we were riding. The horses were extremely gentle and calm. I appreciated Our guide offering to take several pictures of us as a group and individually while on our ride. We now have some great photos! For $30 each we felt the one hour ride was a reasonable price and about the right amount of time to spend riding. I highly recommend this stable. If you have very young children they also offer a horse pulled wagon ride.

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.
