For all you nature lovers out, there’s nothing like getting up close and personal with some of nature’s furry inhabitants. With that, any trip to the Smoky Mountains isn’t complete without a quick jaunt over to Deer Farm Exotic Petting Zoo & Riding Stables in Sevierville.
This great stop just outside the Great Smoky Mountains is 143 acres worth of fun. Pony rides are a favorite as their fenced off trail affords kids a gentle ride with a one of Deer Farm’s sweet, caring ponies. You’ll never forget those photos as a child riding around on ponies and having the time of your life. Deer Park also offers horse rides for our bigger kids and adults. Trot along on Deer Park’s well-maintained trails with the help of an experienced trail guide. Pony rides run $6.99 and carry a 100 pound weight limit. Reservations are required for horse rides. It’s $17.95 for 30 minutes, $20.95 for a 45 minute horse ride, and $23.95 for a 60 minute ride.
After taking a horse ride, or a pony ride, or if you don’t want to take a ride at all and just visit Deer Park’s petting zoo, be our guest.
