We had to cancel the morning of due to something else that came up. We should have been charged the full amount but the owner called to talk about it with me. He offered me a gift card or a refund since we had really intended on going! It was a classy move and made me really gain so much... More

Loved, loved, loved our time at Cedar Creek Stables. Our guide, gosh I can't remember her name, was so friendly and had such great energy. She immediately put us at ease and kept the whole ride light-hearted and enjoyable with her ongoing information and stories. We went on the two hour ride and it was just the right length of... More

If you're looking for the best stables and riding this is the place! Beautiful morning ride, great guide! Thank you Amanda for the adventure! Humans, horses and even the family cat here can't be beat! We recommend whether your new or seasoned rider, mountain views, quiet steams and the beautiful property and working farm!! We'll be back!

Took the 2 hour ride which was a walk only ride. Staff was friendly and appropriately paired riders to horses. Horses were well taken care of.

Every single person working at Cedar Creek was so nice, friendly, and professional. My family, including small child, had a truly great experience and I have already recommended Cedar Creek to numerous friends. Loved it!!

As an inexperienced rider, I totally enjoyed a two hour ride through the woods. The owner and riding guides were all friendly and very professional. From the beginning to the end of the ride, the guides stressed safety and continually called out hazards and helpful comments to facilitate smooth transitions from rocky climbs to creek crossings. The ride included safety... More

We found this place on our last day in Lake Lure. We were able to get a last minute spot on the 1 hr horseback tour. The kids did gem mining before the ride. The place is run by a family. And they were AMAZING! The interaction with the kids was awesome! Teaching the kids about the different gems there... More

Amanda, our trail guide was super at giving us guidance and helping us feel comfortable and confident riding our horses. Thank you Amanda:) She took pictures... More

Went on the 2 hour trail ride with my daughter. It was just us and the guide so a nice relaxing morning. The horses were wonderful. Very sure footed on the wet trails. Would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy nature and the company of horses
