This was my wifes idea and I am so glad that I went along. This was the highlight of our trip. Lori our guide was fun and entertaining and did a wonderful job of walking us through everything and taking us up to the waterfall. The highlight of the trip had to be when the horses got spooked by a... More

We had the best time this afternoon going horseback riding. Loved seeing the waterfall and getting a short hike in to stretch our legs. Our guide was amazing and so funny. The views were spectacular. We liked that the terrain was challenging. In our party we had 3 adults and 6 kids ranging from 9-15.

We're from Florida and are used to riding on flat terrain. Lori guided us up the mountain which was so different from our rides back home. Such an adventure!

Great experience and beautiful ride. Rob and his horses were the perfect guides through the majestic forest. A trip made for memories. Doc the horse was a country gentleman.

Our family of five included first time riders. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was a highlight of our trip. Guides were great. Horses were well paired with riders. Definitely recommend.

OK, full disclosure—I’ve not ridden a hose since 1968. But the Mrs. was trained as a child and has been in a saddle much more recently. Add her love of horses and Chunky Gal’s close proximity to Hiawassee (about 20 minutes from our B & B), and an hour long trail ride through the mountains seemed a perfect gift to... More

Had a great time at the Chunky Gal Stables with my girlfriends. Friendly staff, nice horses and an interesting ride up the mountains of North Carolina. If you're looking for a fun activity be sure to spend some time riding on the range! Nice scenery a long the way. Be sure to bring your bug repellant and wear long pants/... More

Rob guided us on an interesting, amusing and safe trail ride. His horses are very well cared for, with gentle personalities, suitable for riders of any experience level. I did the routine trail ride on my first visit, and returned for the "more challenging" ride that entailed trailering the horses to the trail head on Chunky Gal Mountain. Rob's commentary... More

I'm an experienced rider, riding with eight other inexperienced family members. Rob and Lori were great will all ages of the children and adults. The barn was clean, and the horses were well groomed. Best trail horses I have ever ridden. They were all well behaved and not at all barn sour. Lori was a perfect mix of safety consciousness... More
