What to Expect at Smoky Mountain Riding Stables

  • The Staff – The staff here is experienced and professional. Well versed in both local history and horseback riding, these helpful guides make for fun companions for your journey. Safety is a top concern and the guides take great care to give inexperienced riders helpful instruction.
  • The Terrain – Depending on the route, the trails can be somewhat bumpy at times. These horseback tours in the Smokies travel at a relaxing walking pace because of the mountainous terrain. Many of these trails meander through valleys and climb up mountain sides, so you will be able to view a variety of scenery in the park.
  • The Experience – Rides typically last for 45 minutes, 1 hour and 30 minutes, or 2 hours depending on the route you book. Many of the trails go through wooded settings and involve a few stream crossings. Most of the trails in the park that are horse accessible don't allow viewing scenic mountain vistas. Though your ride may not involve high elevation views, the ride is peaceful, relaxing, and involves plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing.
  • The Horses – Are well taken care of and have distinctive personalities. Don't be surprised if your horse stops for a trailside snack (don't worry, they can easily be nudged into returning to the trail).
