High up in the Smoky Mountains, between thick patches of leafy trees and evergreens, lives a herd of horses that spend their days strolling through trails without a thought for the bustle of city life below. Up there, the Jayell Ranch horses carry tour groups along a 4-mile trail, showing them more than 260 acres of trees and mountain views.
In addition to friendly horses and breathtaking vistas, Jayell Ranch also hosts the longest zipline in the Smokies.

We took our kids to Jayell Ranch for their first real Zip line and outdoor horseback riding experience. From the time we got there to the time we left the people kept us laughing and even in the rain, we had a great time. Adam and Ben were awesome on the Zip line. When we went to ride the horses Mike (I think that's his name??) warned us the horses may slip some since the trail was so muddy and wet and our 8 year old decided there was no way she was getting on the horse. He was so kind and patient with her and finally convinced her to just sit on his horse, Cornbread, so I could get a picture. She agreed to sit on it, then Adam said he would stay with her along the entire trail so she wouldn't be afraid and she agreed to go. She went, Adam stayed with her, and she loved it! She has told everyone she's talked to since she got home about riding Cornbread, the Dixie Stampede Horse. Pops took the rest of us on the ride, including my 6 yr old on his own horse, and patiently answered my kids questions the entire ride. The zip line and horseback ride were great, but the people who work there really made the experience awesome for us. Thank you for making great memories for our family!
2 seniors with 9 & 10 y/o grandsons - on this trip we wanted to find several things the boys had never done before. Jayell offered both horseback riding and ziplines. Staff were super friendly, helpful and professional and the boys had such fun! Zip equipment is well maintained; the horses healthy, groomed, and well-trained for the ride. One thing: the riding is basically one horse following the next in a long line. IOW, the horse runs the show unless it slows down, speeds up, or leaves the line. You just sit there. So don't "argue" with the horse by reining them (not even if you've been riding all your life). But the ride thru the woods and up is lovely, and you're going to enjoy it anyway. Would go back, but next time will do all six ziplines! Thank you, Jayell Ranch!
Our family went on the horseback ride while on vacation. It was a great experience. The staff is knowledgeable, cares about the ssafety of both rider and the animal, and still are down to earth and some funny characters. They took great pics of us to memorialize our adventure at a reasonable price. Thank you for an awesome time!
