Please arrive at least 20 minutes before your ride is scheduled to leave. We like to take time to review safety tips and learn
about your riding experience. This also gives time for paperwork and payment.
Cancellation & refund policy: You must call to cancel your ride at least 24 hours in advance or you will be charged for the
ride. No refunds will be given once the ride begins.
Wolf Laurel Stables is open to the public and rides can be scheduled 7 days a week from 9 AM to 5 PM from mid-April
through November. Off season or after hours rides may be scheduled by appointment.
All ages are welcome. When making your reservation, please provide information about children’s ages and riding experience so that
we can plan for an appropriate number of guides and match the riders with the best horses for their needs. Some children may be required to ride with an
adult. We have saddles to accommodate this.
Wear jeans/pants and closed toed shoes (riding boots, tennis shoes, etc.).
Because of our high elevation, temperatures can change quickly. Bring a jacket! We’re usually at least 10 degrees cooler than Asheville down in the valley.
Helmets are required for persons 18 and under on horseback unless authorized by responsible adult.
All major credit cards are accepted.
You are welcome to bring food and/or beverages (no alcohol is allowed prior to rides) and a covered waiting area is available in the
Stables area for relaxing by the stream. One of our two-hour+ rides can include time to stop at a picnic area for a brief picnic if riders would like
to pack their lunch for the ride. These two-hour+ rides also offer the option of a picnic box lunch. The seven-hour ride to Big Bald Mountain can also
include time for a picnic at the Angelico Ridge Pavilion. All box lunches are provided as an option (if interested, please call for availability, pricing; must prepay three days in advance of scheduled ride).
Bottled water is available for a nominal fee at the Stables.
Rides can take place in rainy weather as long as the trails are not too wet. If you have questions about the weather conditions for
your ride, please contact the Stables for more information.
You are welcome to bring a camera with you or you may purchase a disposable camera at the stables.
Safety is our number-one priority. Please let us know if you have any questions.
