Horseback Riding

Saddle up! Take in the breathtaking scenery from a new perspective: See Tennessee on horseback. Make it a family adventure with trail rides through mountain ridges and peaceful valleys, by waterfalls and rivers.

Tennessee is equestrian country! Bring your own horse or mount one of our horses to explore, our magnificent nature and parks. Mountain paths, lakeside trails, alongside blueways—all beckon you and your horse to enjoy the great outdoors in Tennessee.

Second in the nation for equine numbers, Tennessee offers an equestrian vacation that is adventurous, exhilarating, relaxing, life-changing. Ride and enjoy the natural escape in splendid Sequatchie Valley, the breathtaking Cumberland Mountains, or in farm country near Franklin in Middle Tennessee.

Find your rider’s paradise in Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, with over 180 miles of signed horse trails and access to the area’s gorgeous scenic features. Lead a noble animal out of Cades Cove Stables and survey the “Peaceful Side of the Smokies.” Happy trails!
