I’m local and have been here many times. I love that it is the only non guided tour where it’s just the people you came with. The views are the best by far! The horses are well trained and the staff is friendly. I always...More

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!

We always visit Next to Heaven for horseback riding when we are in the Gatlinburg area. It's actually located in Townsend but the drive there is scenic and not bad at all. This is the only stable that offers unguided riding. The horses have walked...More

Great time. Horses knew where to go. Beautiful trails to the top of a scenic mountain for photo shoot. Kids had a blast (8 and 4 years).

The horses were very well behaved. Each rider was matched perfectly to their horse. The view at the top of the mountain was spectacular. The horses knew to stop to let us take pictures. Fantastic!

They really want to go at their own pace. Also the workers want you to let them go at their own pace. We took our time and someone came up the hill to find out why we were taking so long. We also galloped a little.

We did not notice a weight limit. You would have to check with them about that. The price was $40, for self guided tour. We took our time and enjoyed every bit of the ride.
