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

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.

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!
