My kids had been asking for the horseback riding since we got to the smokies. This place was packed with people and the waiting list was 3 hour long! There is no reservation available. We decided to come back the next morning to minimize the wait. We got there at 8:45am right before they start, and there were already people who registered before us. Luckily, we were the 2nd group to depart so it wasnt too long of a wait. The staffs were all friendly and great with kids.

Our group, 4 adults and 4 kids range from 5-8, all enjoyed the ride very much. Half of the group were first time riders. We were very surprised that kids got to ride pretty much the same size horse as the adults. Of course the kids were all excited to get their “big” horse. I think the adults were more nervouse being on tall horses and walking along the mountain trails than the kids! The price for one hour ride is very fair. The horse did lots of hard work climbing the steep hill and definitely deserved the price we pay. We will be back the next time we visit Gatlinburg!

I brought my 3 Grandkids there late one afternoon earlier this month with only the intention of finding out about pricing so we could could come back later. The staff members took interest in the children and spent a good deal of time discussing everything about horses. After a while, one of them said let's put these kids on a horse and let them ride around in the stable area. What a thrill it was for them to actually get on the horse named WORM. They even took pictures and put them on a CD for us.
We will definitely be back to Sugarlands for a ride. Thanks

We took our two little girls ages 6 & 7 on this and were a little apprehensive about whether they would do okay on a horse by themselves. Turns out they did great! The horses were very gentle and were responsive to our inputs. The trail we rode started out going up a hill beside a roaring creek and there were great views during the entire ride. We were all novices on horseback, but we all had a wonderful time. They won't let you walk next to the horse with your kids but there's no need for that.

The people here are so nice & the horses are very sweet. The trails are also great because it is going up the mountain with great scenery. Highly recommend to friends and family, they also take many pictures for you to purchase on a CD or flashdrive.

It was my first time riding but I had a great time with my girlfriend. The guide and other employees are very friendly. The scenery throughout the mountains are beautiful.
