I’m local and have been here many times. I love that it is the only non guided tour where it’s just the people you came with. The views are the best by far! The horses are well trained and the staff is friendly. I always recommend them to tourists!

Went here after looking at many different zip lines in the area, and this is by far the best around. Good prices, awesome people, and best experience! Views and speeds are amazing!

My wife, 15 year old daughter and I saddled up at the bottom of a hill and proceeded to wind our way to a vista view of the Smokies. We picked here because we didn't just want to walk through the woods but see a long range view of the mountains as well.The trail was pretty and interesting. It was a very enjoyable one hour ride. It was like having our own horses and with just my family on the trail it was pleasant to talk.

This was the peak of our vacation. I was so afraid to ride the horse by myself unguided since that was my first time riding!!! But God, how smart are these horses! they know where to go, they know where to stop for pictures, and wait for the ones behind! Just incredible! the trail that you go on leads to a breathtaking view of the mountains, and the horses of course stop for you to take the pictures. They even let my husband ride with our 3 year old on the horse. The owners are so nice and welcoming, they even gave my daughter some apples to feed the horses.Will definitely like to come back and do it again!

Drove all the way out to this place, as we drove by and it was open then, so planned the next day to stop and ride horse and zipline, but they were closed, their sign said they should be open. Called the phone no# and they said they had to be closed because the employee that hauled their horses needed the day off. What one employee shuts down the place, they have no back up, that is very unreliable, but maybe meant to be if that's how they operate. Very disappointed!
