Had a blast! Very well organized, great instructions, good safety training before starting ride so everyone was comfortable. We all had a very enjoyable time. Would definitely recommend regardless of ATV experience level. Lunch provided was delicious and plentiful. ATV's were well taken care of. Will definitely do this again next time we are in the area.

Our group ranging in age from 16 to 78 were all beginners. The training and practice was excellent. One participant wanted to go slow and was given all the time and attention required to have as wonderful experience as the others. The lunch was balanced, filling and yummy! Following the conclusion of the adventure, we all agreed it was great... More

My son and I went with another Dad and son, had a blast. Dyan and Scott thought of all the little details we guys would NEVER think of like: wet towels to wipe the dust out of your eyes, bandannas to help with dust, sunglasses for guys who don't wear them to keep dust out of your eyes, a lunch...

Had a great trip. Diane and her husband were so very kind. The lunch was good, the ride and scenery was great. Our second trip out for the day made for a story to tell. Really had a blast on the four wheelers. Can't wait to do it again. The price was very fair for everything that was included. Adore... More

Dyan and Scott were absolutely excellent hosts. We had a great time on our ATV adventure. My adult daughter, teenaged son and myself had varying levels of knowledge and experience with atv activities. Dyan and Scott made us feel like family.

The ATV experience began with following the truck and trailer carrying the 4wheelers and staff along an easy drive to the trails. Upon arrival we were fitted for helmets for safety. The 4 wheelers were of good size and were in great condition. My friend and I were given in-depth instruction on the CORRECT way to ride the 4-wheelers (since... More

The first compliment I can give to this company is how well-treated the horses obviously are. The caretakers were constantly checking equipment, shoes, etc. to make sure the horses are as comfortable as the customers. Dyan also gives a very thorough lesson beforehand teaching us how to ride the horses, even giving specific details for each horse. The ride itself... More

I chose Appalachians by Horseback for my family on our recent trip to Boone precisely because of the awesome reviews, and this experience truly lived up to its reputation. Everything was wonderful. Dyan, the owner, was very helpful and truly loves the horses. The young ladies who assist her were very personable and helpful. I chose this as a surprise... More
