Beautiful trails along the mountains of North Carolina. Come enjoy a tractor rider delivering you to your horse, then off to the trails. Trails include a hour and half trail ride! Then come relax in our farm store and enjoy poetry from Keith Ward/ owner and cowboy poet. Also, stories and horsemanship from Tim Vines. Wonderful trails looking out over the mountains with a view of grandfather, great horses, and fantastic trail guides and you'll bound to have a YEE HAW good time!!!!!!!

Trail rides are $ 50 a piece and we DO NOT take children under the age of 6 up the trail. But no worries there is plenty for them to do around the farm!

  • We had a great experience especially being our first time really ever riding; due to great guides and horses, especially considering that one of my boys (age 11) was extremely nervous. I wasn't sure he would finish but the guide (I hate I can't remember her name) coached him through it and kept him calm as possible. She also educated each person on how the horse reacts or might react while on trail and what you should do and not do in response. The horses were well matched with each person in our group of 4 ( ages 47, 45, 11, and 8)and did well on the muddy trail that day. The view at the top was just beautiful!! My youngest can't wait to do it again! I'm so glad we experienced this as a family ❤️
  • Very friendly staff and reasonably priced at $60 per person for about an hour long trail ride. Beware they only accept cash or check so bring some cash or a check book! The trails have a built in photo stop which was appreciated. The scenery and the horses are beautiful. Would recommend if you’re in the area!
