I've done several trail rides in the Asheville/Blue Ridge Mountain area, this one is by far the best. The views were absolutely incredible, the guides were excellent, and the horses were well trained. I couldn't have had a better experience. I HIGHLY recommend this place.

I don't know about the spa either. From the looks of the horseback riding facilities and farm, I'd be surprised there was a spa in anyway affiliated with the Trail Rides business.
