  • 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!  more »
  • 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 wood...  more »

  • Love this place! A return customer, first rode here 25 years ago and was controlled to see happen upon it again with my daughter's today. What a great treat to share with them on father's day weekend. We stopped in right at closing and the staff graciously welcomed us and sent us out riding. My daughter's forts ever horse experience and a lifetime type memory. The scenery is amazing and the price worth every penny.
  • Donnie and Angie and crew run an excellent stable. Awesome ride through the mountains. I've ridden numerous times and loved it every time. The horses are gentle and great for all ages. You will not be disappointed. Next to Heaven says it all.
  • Best place for horseback riding. And we've been to 3 different places before. This one is our favorite so far. Did horseback rides with the family(a 7 year old on her own horse and a 4 year old with a parent) in May 2016 and May 2017. We loved the fact that it's an unguided ride, just us and a forest. Horses are very well trained, no problem at all. Ride itself is pretty, the view from look out is gorgeous. The trail is perfect length. It end right before you get tired or bored. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Will come again. Thank you!
  • I had an amazing time here. The horseback riding is unguided and has awesome views of the mountains. The service was great, the people were extremely nice, and the experience was unbeatable as well as the price. Ziplining through the woods was by far one of most fun times I've had in the area. I highly recommend the trip.
  • This place was great! The horses are very well trained and beautiful! The staff were very friendly. We've done a few of the guided rides at other places so it was a very nice change from that. It was a nice private ride just my husband and I. The views were amazing! We will definitely come again on our next trip!
