About
Ride on horseback following your guide through a hardwood and enchanting white pine forest sprinkled with azaleas before you emerge into an open meadow on top of the mountain. You reach 4,200 feet in elevation here and are treated to sweeping 30 mile views out to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Also, be on the lookout for wildlife, including deer, chipmunks, turkey, hawks and raptors of all types soaring above. On the descent, you travel past the Old Fort Lodge area — a former youth camp established in 1960 — before ending your ride back at the stables of this 200-acre working horse farm. Be sure to bring your camera. These are memories you want to treasure forever.

Horseback at Arrowmont
We love this family owned business. They treat their horses and clients very well. Their training before the rides is very extensive.

Flame Azalea Trail Horseback Riding

We had such an amazing experience! Our guide was extremely helpful and patient and made sure we enjoyed every minute. He matched us to the perfect horses, made sure we were comfortable and kept my 7 year old son safe and happy near him. A beautiful background to an incredible activity - we highly recommend.

Awesome family environment. My mom and I went together. Sonny and his wife are very kind and caring. The horses are very well trained and the ride was easy and beautiful. This was only my second time on a horse and it was great!

A 'dream' come true!
Jul 2018 • Family
We had a wonderful riding experience at Arrowmont Stables! They have several beautiful horses, including my daughter's "dream" horse, the Appaloosa! It's a family run business and everyone we interacted with was very friendly and helpful. We had such a great time on our trail ride that we actually booked a second ride for the next day! Our guides were Mitchell and Nicole and they were fantastic in providing an amazing and memorable experience for my whole family! We will certainly be revisiting them when back in the area.
