Our trails offer the natural beauty and serenity of the North Georgia Mountains. You will follow a guide through forest trails of which some areas overlook beautiful Lake Nottley. While there is a guide provided you can choose an easy walking pace for the entire trail, as well as, when the trail opens up you can experience the smooth quickened gate and rack of which the walking horse is most noted.By using our Blairsville holiday maker app, you can arrange your visit to A Step Above Stables and other attractions in Blairsville.
Unlike many others who offer trail rides we feel that you will have a much more enjoyable experience in a private group of just your family & friends. We have numerous trails that are guided and designed to meet your groups level of expectations to make each ride unique.

A Step Above Stables reviews
I purchashed a mare from Curtis and his crew. She was a little older than we both thought and pregnant! Curtis offered right away to bring me another horse (all the way to Florida) but we liked her.... more »

We added two healthy, well-mannered geldings to the family from A Step Above Stables. Mr. Curtis said he had “just what we were looking for,” and we went down to GA for a quick test ride and found it to be true. We were assured by the guarantee that if our new friends were not a good fit, they could be exchanged up to a month later. Thankfully we did not need to take him up on that, as we are very pleased with our sweet trail riders. If you are looking to buy, we recommend A Step Above Stables. You can expect some time pressure and good salesmanship when booking your appointment because there is a typically a quick turnover. A delay could mean the horse you have your eyes on is already sold; thankfully, deposits are accepted. Mr. Curtis will be very quick in responding to all messages and will help schedule a trusted hauler.
We got two amazing horses from Curtis. We can’t thank him and his fabulous team enough. They worked with us every step of the way and eased my jitters about getting back into horses after 20+ years. We are in love with our 2 new geldings. A Step Above Stables is the place to go!
