My hubby loves his cowboy boots and hat, but had never been on a horse. For 30+ years I have been trying to get him on a horse. Today we finally fid it. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We received great instructions, and soon learned proper execution. Great experience, recommended!

We went on the scenic valley trail ride and it was nice. The guide was very good and was exceptionally good with my talkative 6.5 year old. It was a very serene trail through the woods and to a meadow for about an hour and a half. The folks in the office were all very nice. Overall, I recommend this... More

My family was in Sapphire, NC for a week. We took a ride up to Cullowhee to escape the rain and were directed to Arrowmont by the visitor center in Sylva. They were able to get 9 of us in and were flexible with our start time. I've ridden a handful of times but most of our group were novices.... More

Our trail ride was amazing! The guide was great and very knowledgable. This place is family run and it shows by how passionate the family is about the horses. Highly highly recommend!!! We got to see the blue ridge parkway, and even had fresh blackberries on the trails.

So this is a mixed review. The trails and views are very good but that's the only good. The guides have no personality and one was a little rude. My son struggled some with controlling his horse and the head guide basically snapped at him and told him it was his fault. Once he got settled in it was fine.... More

We are grateful you did enjoy the trails. They are majestic. So sorry you didn't enjoy the rest more. Regarding looking up your charges, we have had difficulty all summer with our phone and internet service. Frontier has been trying to upgrade the service but it's been at a very busy time and it has caused problems. I'm sorry. More

We took our two kids (ages 11 and 10) on a great, 1.5 hour ride with friendly guide Josh, through gorgeous mountains. Josh pointed out lots of interesting details, and the whole process was really professional and safety-oriented. We had a great time! The kids said that they learned more about riding horses in this one-morning instance than they had... More

Wife and her mother took our boys here for their first ride. They handled our boys well and gave them a great time. My 10 year old loved handling his own horse. My 8 year old was nervous but the guide had the horse follow on a line and he still had a good time. They provide an instructional period... More
