    What to Expect
    Upon arrival at Arrowmont Stables and Cabins in Cullowhee, North Carolina, meet the horses and begin a safety program that includes a video or live horse training and safety demonstration. Get to know the horse’s personalities and if desired, try the horse of choice in ‘the ring’ before departing. Select a different horse, if necessary, before leaving on the guided ride. Helmets (as well as raincoats/ponchos) are provided at no charge.

    Embark on the beautiful Flame Azalea Trail, riding through hardwood and white pine forests, plus open meadows with elevated views of the all-American Blue Ridge Parkway from 4,200 feet.

    On a clear day, see up to 30 miles away. Look for a variety of wildlife in their natural environment, including local eagles. On the descent, travel through the Old Fort Lodge, an old youth camp that is still used for activities and special events.

    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!
