“Great guide”

Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

We had an amazing guide. Our 8 year old had a lead rope to the guide and he talked her ear off the entire time. We went on an hour ride and seen a lot of nature. The price was a little steep for a family of 6 especially since the guides don't make much so we compensated her well. Wasn't expecting to have to pay an extra $10 to ride double with my 3 year old who didn't get much out of the ride. We still enjoyed our ride and everyone was very friendly and the horses did great.

We had a spur of the moment trip to cades cove and passed this on the way up. We did not have reservations or dressed to go horse back riding. However Anita was great she worked us in to a ride about to go out and we had a fantastic time. Everyone in our party had horse experience so it was nice just to unwind with the work of what it takes to take a horse out for a trail ride. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys doing trail rides. My ONLY word of caution is if you have never been on a horse before, research a bit more. We did the one hour trail and everyone in our group seemed to have been on a horse a few times. The trail its self maybe a bit much for a first time rider. I would also like to add, we require our child to wear a helmet when on a horse, since this was spur of the moment we did not bring her helmet. They did have them there! This may seem like a no brainer, but not every place in the area provides or offers helmets. Again nothing but a great review, experience and time. My only word of caution would be if you are a first time rider or have never been on a horse. may want to consider seeing a flat, easy gravel trail.

Started the morning with an hour tour and really enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the area. Our 6yr old loved riding a ‘big horse’ all by herself!

Loved the guides. I was nervous with a first time rider and me not riding for 30yrs. They made us comfortable. Calm horses. Great experience. Great prices.

This place is wonderful! The guides are great! I haven’t been on a horse in 20 years and all of their horses were very well behaved and gentle!We would all revisit this riding stable again!
