Experience the Smoky Mountains on horseback, with a 3.5 mile loop winding past ponds, a creek, an old moonshine still and up a ridge to million dollar views of the Smoky Mountains. Conveniently located right off the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge, horseback riding with 5 Oaks Riding Stables will leave you and your group with memories to last a lifetime.
After checking in, you will wait outside on the porch next to the horse stalls. Fifteen minutes prior to the trip time, a staff member will come out and announce your trip. Riders will then meet the horse they will be riding and mount their animal. The Lead Guide will then go over safety procedures and riding instructions. After, you will depart on a trail ride, following the Lead Guide. During your roughly hour long trip, you will ride through the Smoky Mountains passing a babbling creek, old moonshine still, and fishing pond. Trotting on, you will come up on a ridge with million-dollar mountain views of some of the highest peaks in the Smoky Mountains. You will loop back around to the horse stalls, say goodbye to your horse and head back to the office to check out your photos that were taken on your ride.
