Programma

Ride. Restore. (Re)connect.

Picture yourself meandering through the idyllic, mountain-framed grounds of an old 300-acre dairy farm located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. On each side you’re surrounded by some of the most stunning flora and fauna in the Eastern US.

The two-hour horseback ride takes place on Evan’s family farm in rural Barnardsville, NC. Lovingly referred to as “The Dairy,” the farm was operated from the 1930s until 2008 and has a history almost as beguiling as the land it’s on. (To boot: it used to sell milk to the famous Biltmore Estate!)

We’ll begin the trail ride by getting to know each other and our horses. After that, I’ll briefly explain the ins and outs of horseback riding. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or first-timer, a kid or a retiree, it doesn’t matter; anyone can do it. Then we’ll be off, gaining 400 feet of elevation and a lifetime of memories.

As a longtime rider and horse enthusiast, I own and operate my business with the mission of giving my guests an unforgettable horseback riding experience. I am convinced that everyone can take something meaningful from mountain trail rides, whether it’s connecting with nature, enjoying a rare moment of solitude, or familiarizing themselves with the incredible equine world. My rides are intimate, resulting in a semi-private riding experience designed to meet the needs of each rider.

I remember falling in love with horses at the age of three. I spent most of my childhood dreaming, reading, and talking about horses —and begging my parents to buy me one. They finally did (his name was Taco). I’ve been riding and taking care of horses ever since. Before college I worked for Teton National Park leading guided trail rides. Five years ago I created my dream career by combining my passions for the outdoors, horses, travel, and people. I continue to read, learn, and dream about horses. I look forward to sharing this amazing experience with you.

Joy made our experience extra special with thoughtful communication asking about our experiences on horseback. She even emailed the morning of the event asking if we were comfortable riding in mud, explaining that the horses would slip. And she offered a full refund if we felt uncomfortable! Joy fitted us with specific horses, all that she personally owns, and with specific saddles and pads. This was huge for us as my husband never fits well in a western saddle. These were Australian saddles with gel pads that were amazing. Joy was knowledgeable about horses and the area without being overbearing. You will not be disappointed with this ride!!

Joy is the sweetest host I’ve ever met on these Airbnb experiences. She makes you feel safe and goes at your speed. I appreciated how the most basic instructions are given at the beginning of the ride and Joy constantly asks how everyone is doing while on the trail. Each horse is paired with the appropriate riding level of the rider. I asked Joy for the slowest and most gentle horse and she delivered!! I was paired up with Kensho and he was absolutely amazing I fell in love!!! He kept me safe and always behind Joy. You can tell Joy loves her horses and they love her. The trail is breathtaking with a view to die for. I am excited to return in the spring. If you love horses and scenery this is the experience for you!!

From the start Joy and Natalie were friendly and up beat. You can tell they have a real love and appreciation for the horses. The ride was rougher than I was expecting for first timers but I really enjoyed it. My 11 yo daughter loves horses and had a wonderful time and was happy they had an Arabian on the property. It was a last minute add on to our Xmas trip and Im so pleased we did it! Highly recommend, you wont regret it!

Beautiful, magical ride through a historic mountain side! Worth every penny! We enjoyed ourselves greatly and if we are ever back in Asheville we will book with Joy again, for sure! The horses were so gentle and well trained. Each horse has its own personality and we had plenty of time to bond with our horses. They were perfect for new riders. Joy was such a pleasant host and Natalie as well. Both were so personable and easy to get to know. Both were cautious of our safety and the horses! We were not nervous, as they made the experience so safe and welcoming.

Originally, we were scheduled for the 9AM time slot, but we had to postpone the morning session because the trail was slick. She asked us to come at 3PM instead and that actually worked perfectly for us (since I had planned for a trip to Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls). When I first met Joy, I was surprised to see how happy and patient she was with us. She thoughtfully put together a wonderful afternoon together for my family and I who have never ridden horses. Every little detail was curated so that we would have the best time. For example, knowing my Mom was nervous and had some trouble understanding English, she had my Mom follow her and me in third position so that I could translate words while she could easily get help from Joy if needed. She even went as far as helping us take photos and videos of us! Joy taught us what we needed to know and worked with us before we started the trail. She was always encouraging and helpful. I could tell my Mom gained a lot of confidence every time Joy complimented her and reassured her. During the ride, Joy taught us so much about the horses and answered our questions. I felt very comfortable and entertained. The entire experience was truly magical and we loved every minute. I feel like Joy goes above and beyond. She is so easy to talk to— like a breath of fresh mountain air! She left a really good impression on my city-dwelling family members and I know that I will always cherish these memories I had. Super thankful to have met this wonderfully sweet lady. Keep living the dream and hope she keeps growing her business!
