The only National Park-authorized riding stables of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Cades Cove!

Indulge Your Unbridled Spirit!
Come and explore the wilderness of Tennessee as it appeared to some of America’s first settlers, from the saddle. Off the beaten path, you’ll see what’s under the forest canopy, and maybe even some woodland critters! You’ll even discover a bit about our Cove as our guides share stories of the remnants of the historic settlement of the area.

Memories For The Entire Family!
For expert riders to first timers, a trip back in time through the breathtaking wilderness of Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an adventure you’ll never forget. We have a range of activities available that the entire family can appreciate. All you have to do is choose your own adventure.

Choose Your Own Adventure:

Have control of your very own horse as your trail guide takes you through the wilderness of Cades Cove.

Sit back and relax as you explore the forest from the comfort of your carriage seat with your private guide.

Perfect for large groups, this tractor-driven hay trailer is the perfect way to explore Cades Cove Loop Road and the surrounding 19th and early 20th century farming communities.

Even the greatest of adventures need to be postponed at times, but we’ll still be here waiting for you.

From frolicking deer to slumbering bears, Cades Cove is teeming with life.

Our goal is to make this natural environment enjoyable to as many people as possible.
