We have been to a lot of riding stables, but this one is by far the cleanest and great ride. Tammy was wonderful as our guide.

It was a fun hour. Easy activity for family ranging from 11 to 70 years old. Went up and down the mountain, where they did try to match the horses with each of our abilities. Next time, we will try the two hour mountain and river ride! Thanks Tammy!

We went in December with a group of nine - teens and Dads. We did the hour long mountain ride. Really fun time. Arlene was really sweet, and out guide, Tammy was awesome. I wish we were able to do the second hour with the river ride, but they were already booked. Also would have been cool to get to a trotting pace. But overall, a great experience! Prices are very reasonable.

We vacation at Lake Lure from Florida every year and have been to Riverside Stables for 16 years. It has become a family tradition. My daughters started riding there when they were 6 years old.The satff is very friendly and personable. The horses are well cared for and gentle. I am sure we will continue to visit for years to come.

Tammy was very accommodating setting up a time to ride based on our travel time from south carolina. Our guide April was great at taking the lead rope for our inexperienced son & reassuring him to trust his horse. We got saddled up and knew a storm was coming. April was great at communicating up & down the mountain. The horses were perfectly paired for everyone in our group. The horses know the trail and responded to the storm calm and cautious coming down the mountain. Funny I read the terrible review from the group who took a ride in the storm. Ours was completely opposite. Yes, we got soaked, yes there was thunder...but we it was cool, our horses responded perfect & we didn't find that it was all about money for the stable. The staff was very accommodating in every way. Being we were traveling we had towels and clothes to change into. They even offered for us to pull up into the barn so the rest of our group could get in without getting wet. I would highly recommend a tour with this stable. Next time we come though we will do the 2 hour with the river ride.

A great place to introduce young riders or older inexperienced people like me to the art of horse back riding. Located in a rural country farm setting. Staff and owners friendly and know how to pair ability with the proper horse. Very affordable and an extended ride down stream offered also. This ride was a birthday gift for my eleven year old granddaughter. We will go back and ride this adventure again.

We visit riverside every year around this time. The horses are chill and the guides are wonderful! It's always a great time. We enjoy the two hour trip which is an hour in the river and an hour in mountains. Reasonably priced for the amount of time you get to ride.

We went to Riverside Riding Stables, 10 minutes away from the Lodge at Lake Lure, and did the 2 hour horseback ride. BEST part of the trip! The first hour was a ride to the top of Bald Mountain and the second hour was riding in the river, sometimes knee deep while on the horses! Breath taking views, especially in the river and saw bear tracks, two adult deer with twin fawns! Jesse and Kaylee, our guides, were a highlight of the trip with their stories of seeing coyote, bobcat, and turkeys on the mountain.
We will return on our next trip to the Lake. The horses are very gentle, My horse was Frosty who was so very sure footed, I didn't even need to manage the reins!!! Beautiful and peaceful ride and Jesse and Kaylee made the experience even more enjoyable!
Thank you, ladies, for a great memory of our trip!

The river walk makes this a better than most trail ride. River is included in the 1/1.5 and 2 hour ride. Trail guides and horses are very nice. been back several times
