Cindy, Asheville NC
I am a rider. I had 7 friends visiting from out of state, non riders. We all had a great time. The horses are in great condition and very well cared for. That was very important to me. The facility is top notch for a trail riding experience, we even got to ride through the creek which I know my friends enjoyed. The guides and wranglers were terrific, everything was very safely done. I was super impressed and will surely take friends again.

Came across Cedar Creek stables when looking for horseback riding in Lake Lure area for family outing! Sure glad we did. Unfortunately our original day was canceled due to storms but they reached out and accommodated a new date for our large group. We had so much fun and was relaxing and beautiful ride. Our guides were so friendly and u could tell they enjoyed what they do!! Thank you again for family fun!!
Peaceful and Fun
Carol and Tad McCord, Rutherfordton, NC
My son and I rode 2-1-22 for the 2nd time. Our guide was such a kind lady! She & all the ladies that work there are wonderful & it is obvious that they LOVE the horses. The view is gorgeous . Other than the sound of the hooves on the trail, you hear nothing but birds calling and wind tickling the trees. It is an amazing peaceful experience . We can’t wait to ride again. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this beautiful experience!
Bruce and daughter Molly, Charlotte NC/ Iowa
Ideal horse ride with a switch back trail going up and down a mountain.
Fabulous views of valleys along the way. My horse seemed to say "I do this every day, so relax and enjoy the ride. No directions needed from you!" Four hours went by fast, one the best times I had in a long time.
Alexander Kroll, Orlando FL
Looked up cedar Creek stables to go on a trail ride while we were staying in lake lure for me and my wife's honeymoon the weather was perfect and the views on the ride was absolutely stunning the staff was amazing to look forward to coming back when we visit North Carolina again soon

My granddaughter requested horseback riding on her graduation trip so we randomly picked Cedar Creek....what an amazing place!! The staff was wonderful, so helpful and accomodating! We had 3 first time riders...the horses were beautiful and gentle! Scenery was awesome! Highly recommend!
Dot Trent, Spartanburg, SC
I try to bring my son or anyone else as much as possible. We really enjoy this place. Been going a year or longer now and they have really improved the trails. The horses and staff are amazing too!!! Highly recommend
The Dfelds, Charlotte, NC
Thank you so much for a great experience. This was truly one of the easiest excursions we have ever done, from beginning to the end. You are were so responsive in returning my phone call to set up the trail ride and gave great advice. 1 hr ride was perfect! The on site staff members were pleasant, encouraging and professional. My entire family ages 12, 15, and two awesome 40 somethings, had a blast. I highly recommend Cedar Creek Stables!
Larry Pullen, Irmo sc
Brought my wife for short 3 day trip. 2hrs away from home. She’s never been riding before. Went on the 1 1/2 hour trip. We absolutely loved it. Will be back in the spring or fall. She’s still talking about it as I type. Great staff.
First Time Rider
Corey and Canyon, Cincinnati, OH
Visiting for Christmas, my 6yr old son and I needed some quality time with a new adventure. While I have done a few horse tours, I am no expert. It was my sons first time on a horse (I was glad to find somewhere with a min age of 6!) I couldn’t be happier with their acceptance and patience with such a young novice. They treated us with so much care , respect and made my son feel confident through his first ride. Appreciate such tender service and highly recommend. Horses were also lovely :-)
Kirstie Alba, Houston, TX
My family and I took the 1 hour ride and it was perfect! The horses were very kind and the trails were gorgeous. My daughter had such a good time that she wanted to keep riding. I'd highly recommend this!
Julie Monk , Fairview, NC
Excellent!!! Highly recommend! The staff is awesome, and the horses were perfect.
Avni, Tampa, FL
We had a wonderful time riding at Cedar Creek Stables. The owner is very pleasant as is his staff. They were accomodating, and we had such a great time that we came back for 2 rides! I highly recommend them!
Bruce G, Gainesville, VA
We came to the stables with our young grandsons. The staff was very friendly and took our older grandson on a long ride. He had a wonderful time and we are planning to bring our younger grandson as soon as he gets old enough.
Kayla Y, Taylorsville NC
The staff were super nice! The horses were well trained and seemed to enjoy their work! My husband had never ridden a horse before and the staff walked him through every step. He had a great time and wants to go riding again! The trail guides are great and very knowledgeable about each horse. If you have never been on a trail ride or a horse for that matter and want to try it, this is the place to go! Very reasonable price and we felt like we got our money's worth. I highly recommend!
The perfect birthday gift!
Angela, Piedmont, SC
My son has been wanting to go horseback riding for years and this was the perfect gift for his 6th birthday. We also took my 7 year old son. Both were new to horseback riding and a little nervous but Lois was great with instructing and guiding them through the trails. We went on the 1 hour trail ride and it was perfect. Thank you Cedar Creek for a wonderful gift to our whole family!
Deborah Shytle, Jesup, GA
My daughter and I went on the Overlook Trail Ride this morning! Everything was absolutely perfect! Each person we encountered was pleasant and genuinely appeared to love their job! The horses were gentle and fun to ride! We will definitely be back when we return to the area!
Today was my first time on a horse and it was absolutely amazing! Lois is a very informative guide and did everything she could to put my mind at ease. It was a true blessing to share this experience with my husband and the views riding up to the mountaintop were breathtaking. We will definitely be return customers.
Susan Stevens, Lake Lure, NC
We could not have asked for a better experience. The owner and entire staff were simply fabulous! We did the one hour ride and it was perfect, the horses did all the hard work and were rewarded when we returned to the stables with lunch and a peppermint for dessert. If you haven't been - go!! You'll be glad you did!
Gale, Spartanburg, SC
My 15 year old daughter and I had a blast. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable and the scenery is beautiful. We even went through a creek! They put you at ease no matter your experience with horses. In our group of 3 families there was an 8 yr old and a grandmother and everyone had a wonderful time. We will be back!!
William J Brown, Poinciana, FL
Great Experience, Great Staff, Great Day!! Every contact with Cedar Creek was friendly & helpful! On our BIG DAY, the staff was very helpful and accommodating to our big group of "Green Horns." The day could not have gone better!
Our second experience
Dolly and Warren Uhl, Easley SC
Today was the second time we visited the Stables. We had a great experience. There was nothing wrong to say about it. The tour guides were great, the guy at the beginning explaining the rules was great. We highly recommend them. You won't be disappointed.
Best horse back riding with Mary Beth
Tara Sasse, Statesville North Carolina
Mary Beth was great I called a couple times to make reservations and she was very accommodating . She is the best tour guide ever and we will definitely return again. My sister and niece and I had the best time ever. I highly recommend if you want to go horseback riding see Marybeth at Cedar Creek Stables
Jack Wegman, Union Beach N.J.
Great day. Staff is great. Mary Beth was our guide and she was outstanding. Treated us great and felt like we were with family. Will be back on our trip in October.
Awesome ride with awesome ladies!
Arlene Parr, Clarks Hill, SC
From start to finish a GRRREAT EXPERIENCE!!!
Six of us made a special trip to Lake Lure, NC just for this ride! Of course we packed in a lot more things to do too!!! But the reason and one of the best highlights of our trip was on horseback! We rode thru creeks and streams and mountains with awesome views! If you’re ever in this area and live horses then take this ride! You will NOT regret it!
The ONLY Riding Stable You Want!
Diane Embach, Hendersonville
I have been here twice with visitors from out of state and yesterday with my husband. The experience from start to finish is simply unforgettable.
The scenery and the staff make this the only choice I will make for future trips and the only stable I’ll recommend to everyone.
Huge thanks to Taylor & Mary Beth, their hearts & souls are in their jobs & their love of the horses & property shines through!
Great trail ride!
Kim B., Greer, SC
Sunday 3/31/19 -Had a great afternoon horse ride at Cedar Creek Stables! It’s reasonably priced, not too far from our home, has sweet horses and helpful staff to make you feel comfortable riding. This was our 2nd time and we will go back.
my favorite ride

i, an experienced rider, went with two people who had never rode alone, let alone in the mountains. we all three thoroughly enjoyed it. it was a very easy ride with amazing scenery. the people were all very friendly. the other group that rode with us had school age children and they did great too. i highly recommend this ride. it was on of my favorites out of seven states and hundreds of rides.
