Well, Townsend, Tn has the answer for you – Davy Crockett Riding Stables. Get off the road into the backcountry and take a relaxing horseback ride in Cades Cove and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Davy Crockett Riding Stables in Townsend has immediate access to backcountry horseback riding trails in the Smokies.
