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).

My husband and I love horseback riding in the mountains. The guide Dave was very friendly and knowledgeable about the territory. Horses were very gentle and followed well. Slow paced ride suitable for anyone. Recommend it if you never done it!

My wife and I try to ride every time we go on vacation, we had a great time on this slow paced ride and even had a little rain. Dave did a great job.

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.
