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.
Me and my boyfriend took a trip to Pigeon Forge for our anniversary and was looking to ride horses. So glad we came across this place! Wonderful experience and the horses were beautiful and well behaved. The people were friendly and really looking forward to visiting again soon!
Why I like Jayell Ranch is my youngest son (8) was not really wanting to ride so they let him double ride with me. Half way through the ride he told us when we get back home (Florida) maybe we can get him a horse like BILLY. He was calling him my buddy BILLY. Our guide MATT was AWESOME also really made everyone feel safe on the ride even the ones that haven't had much riding time.Would recommend Jayell Ranch and Matt as a guide any day..
My girls and I enjoyed a fantastic day at Jayell Ranch. We had a great experience riding the horses today and our guide, Ally, was awesome. She was so friendly and fun. Our horses were so well behaved and really pretty. My youngest daughter had never ridden a horse before. She was given Billy and had so much fun. She was never once scared and truly enjoyed her ride. We are from South Carolina and plan on returning again next year!
