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.
Jayell Ranch is located right next to Dollywood, the world famous attraction in the Smokies. We are family owned and operated, and Safety & Customer Satisfaction is our #1 concern.

We visited yesterday and it immediately became the highlight of our vacation! Our horses were sweet and our guide, Sam was great! He took the time to talk to my son to make sure he knew how to control his horse and stay safe. He joked with him and made us all comfortable. We had a great ride! I took 4 teens and an 8 year old and they were still talking about this experience when we went to bed last night. We will definitely be back!
Last September my father, myself, and my 3 year old daughter went here. I've done other stables but this one is amazing. Not only was the tour guide knowledgeable, but the visit was beautiful! My daughter still talks about "her" horse Soro that she and grandpa rode together. We'll be back in October!
Overall we had a good experience! Our tour guide was very pleasant and nice. We were able to do a private ride with just our family. Although we didn’t get to go on the original trail due to rain earlier in the week, we were still pleased by our tour. Everyone we encountered were very hospitable.
