The best value I have seen for horseback riding. We took the 45 minute ride which was just enough. The horses were well trained and looked well cared for. The trail was nice. Crossing streams and going deep into woods. We even saw a bear...More

We arrived at Smoky Mountain stables around 9:30 on a Sunday. All the staff were very friendly and the horses looked well fed and strong. As an animal lover that was one of my biggest concerns. I went with my 13-year-old and my 11-year-old and...More

Great ride with a 6 year old who had her own horse (held on to by the guide). Good 45 minutes thru the Smokey Mountains National Forest on trails through creeks - can see wild life (turkeys).

I saw small children riding alone, I'm not certain if I saw little ones on the same horse as a parent. I would advise to call the stable direct. It is a great, beautiful country, streams, forest, etc, very safe and easy.
