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.

Me and my friends were in the Great Smoky Mountains during our fall break vacation. We decided to do horseback riding at Jayell Ranch. I was very interested because I wanted to reminisce some memories when I took lessons in Minnesota. I asked the horse staff out of curiosity what is the biggest horse on the ranch. Before you know it, I was asked if I was interested in riding the biggest horse during the adventure (which I gladly accepted). Once I hopped on Diesel (the horse's name), memories from 10+ years ago started to come back to me. One woman made a joke about the horse I rode why the horse's name was Diesel (because I was told he was the biggest horse in the ranch). Dakota, our guide, was very helpful and friendly. Especially since my horse was close to him every time we stopped and continued (turns out that our guide was Diesel's owner (hopefully I'm right about this) I could be wrong). I haven't ridden a horse since 2005, and it is easy for me to say that this is the best time of my life!
I wanted to thank Dakota and all the staff at Jayell Ranch for making this horseback riding experience the best one! And a big shout out to Diesel for carrying a big guy like me through out the adventure! :D
I will be more than happy to return to the ranch when I am in the Great Smoky Mountain area!
Speaking of which, if anyone happens to vacation in the area, you must go there! The ranch has a variety of activity (I wanted to do zip-line, but couldn't because we had to leav
Me my wife and two daughters (13 and 7) went for a hourseback ride and had a wonderful time. The trails were laid out well and our guide Keith was very nice. Afterward we rode the zip lines and the young men that went with us on the zip lines were very nice and patient with all of us. This is a great place to to take the whole family and spend some time having fun. The whole staff was quite exceptional and. Dry patient with us. We will return on our next trip as I think my 7 year old wants to ride a bourse by herself.
We did zip lining and horseback riding. Both were a lot of fun. The 6 zip line course was definitely worth it. Christoph and Chris were our zip line guides and made it a fun experience.
