No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.  ~Winston Churchill

Safe for the whole family, riders 3 years or older are welcome to take a ride with their 4-legged friend while they unplug and soak in the beauty of the Smokies. Common sitings include wild turkeys, white-tailed deer, and a variety of birds (the Smokies are home to almost 200 species of bird!) and various other creatures.

During your guided horseback ride, your tour guide will lead you and your group through the winding dirt paths, rut with hoof marks, giving you a verbal history of the land’s proud Smoky Mountains history. During your ride, you will pass authentic moonshine stills, see beautiful mountainous views, peer over the city of Sevierville, and even experience the occasional zip-liner going rushing overhead.

Insider Tip:
If you’re new to horseback riding or think you might be a bit uneasy, it’s best to go on a dry day when the ground hasn’t had rain for at least 24 hours. If it’s your first time on a horse, be sure to tell your guide and they will ensure a positive riding experience and help you feel comfortable on your horse.
