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

I'm sure actually doing this event is wonderful but we were really disappointed with this company. We booked a ride about 2-3 months before we planned a trip to Boone and had planned all the activities we were going to do that weekend around this horseback riding trip. We were so excited to go. Turns out our trip was cancelled... More

First of all, I have never ever experienced the professionalism and concern for riders as I did with Dyann. I have been riding horses for years and every trip that my family takes definitely has to include a trail or mountain ride. So, I have been to multiple places in different parts of North Carolina and this was by far,... More

My husband surprised me with this horseback riding tour for our anniversary. They even put ribbons in the horses' manes and they have different colored ribbons to represent different years of marriage as well as birthdays. We rode halfway in a wagon and the other halfway on horseback which was the perfect amount of riding. I was a little nervous... More

Wow, what a great experience.I have ridden with a number of stables before but this is head and shoulders above any. Everything was extremely professional. The horses are so well cared for and groomed. Dyann and her assistants were fabulous. Not only did we enjoy a great ride, but learned the proper way to ride and manage horses. This is... More

Had a wonderful adventure with the horseback riding and carriage ride. And you bet to clean and tend to the horses afterwards! Diane and her helpers were excellent and the picnic was wonderful. Best horseback riding experience we have had in the Boone area.

Very educational for folks who know little about horses. I'm now more comfortable around them. I have the basics. I will never be "John Wayne"! It was worth the price, the ride, pictures, lunch, all included. The ride included a history of the beautiful land and river around us. All questions were answered and expanded on. Diane shared her love... More

One of the highlights of our trip. Booked the trip for three adults and two teenagers. I was first impressed with the great customer service and attention to detail by the owner and staff. First, beginners will learn the proper way to ride a horse. You will get to know each horse and what to expect from them. I highly... More
