“Most enjoyable and beautiful ride yet!”

Queen's Farm Stables
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Me and my family recently visited the riding stables while visiting waynesville NC and this was honestly the greatest and most caring stables I have ridden at in a long time! Myself, and two sister in laws one being 12 and her friend all took the ride and she is terrified of horses and she left the stable with a smile on her face all day because the guide made the ride enjoyable and comfortable the entire time. The ride and view are both pleasant especially at the top of the mountain with a beautiful view, the mountains were a little steep but the horses stuck right along with the guide and kept us safe!!! Must suggest this ride to anyone who has children or elderly parents as a family event to do!!! DONT PASS IT UP!!!

This was a great ride. Angie , our guide was a great ,easy going person with much knowledge and charm. Her stories and folk lore of the area was a great addition to the riding adventure . This is truly worth doing while in Maggie Valley, the views are gorgeous, and the horses are well trained and cared for, we loved it!!

It was such a great experience. It wasn't our first time horse back riding but we haven't rode a horse in a long time. Our guide was very encouraging, great with the horses, and had great horse tips to help you and the horse. The trail was gorgeous! One of the best trails. If you do the 3/4 hour ride all the way to the top of the mountain, the view is AMAZING! It was a really great experience for our family and we definitely be back hopefully in the fall.

My family and I visited Queen's Farm yesterday and I encountered a very frightening situation which really made me fully understand the inherent danger of riding a horse, especially for an inexperienced rider. My hubby, 2 sons (10 and 13) and my parents set out for what we thought would be a fun two hour ride up to the top of the mountain. When we made it to the top, my horse was stung by a bee. It started to buck, causing me to fall off. Thank God it didn't step on me! The guide said that one of the horses must have stepped on a hive. She was stung a few times herself. Needless to say, I didn't get back on the horse. I was terrified and in pain. It could have thrown me off the side of the mountain! Luckily, it happened on the inside of the trail. I walked all the way back down the mountain, worried sick all the while about the safety of my family who were still on the ride. I am still counting my blessings that it didn't happen to any of my other family members, especially my two young boys. This is just an example of the unpredictability of nature. I hope this helps parents who are thinking about taking their children on a ride. The stable was average to me. The staff were generally nice. Ride safely.

This was hands down the best trail ride I've been on years! We signed up for the 1 3/4 hr ride. The staff was very helpful and our trail guide, Sam, was excellent! If you like to ride, I highly recommend these folks!
