Best riding I have found so far – This is an interesting place, it is like stepping into the 1800's, rustic barns and fences, stone walls left over from civil war days, etc. The horses are well taken care of and they allow you to actually ride. I have been to many stables in my travels and they have all been nose to butt, single file and walk only, but at Juro Stables they picked a very good horse for me, I am an experienced rider and I was allowed to run. I took my 5 yr old beginner rider grandson with me and they took great care in giving him a very well trained horse and helped him learn to ride as they allowed me to run. I was very impressed with how well they take care of their horses and teach beginners as they ride. If you are looking for a new, fancy Kentucky Derby like place then this place is not for you, but if you like rustic, the outdoors and beautiful scenery and the chance to really ride then this IS the spot to try. I highly recommend it.
sad but true – i love the idea of juro. i boarded my horse out there for a long time, and led trail rides as well, until my horse developed behavioral problems, such as an irrational fear of men.
the place itself is not healthy for the horses. the clientele are wonderful, but it is true that the horses are overworked, and mistreated by some staff.
the spca needs to investigate.
if you are interested in riding there--and it truly is beautiful--do your homework. meet the owners. ask questions. come to your own conclusions. spend some time with the horses.
please the check the horses' feet before you think about riding. so many of them have bad feet, and are in no condition to be ridden at all.
Highly Recommended! – You will be pleasantly surprised by this. We've established a tradition of riding at every chance when we travel. Frankly, when we drove up my first thought was "uh-oh I've made a mistake here." I've been accustomed to riding in some really nice venues in Hilton Head, etc. The barn and immediate surroundings are pretty rustic and plain. The initial contact with the "staff" wasn't much to write home about either. But what a great surprise and experience from that point on! Our guides were terrific, the horses were superb, and the scenery breathtaking. They will surprise you by not limiting your experience on the horses. You get the opportunity to walk, run, even jump in the "fun field". Special thanks to Brandon our guide and the young lady that led us through the trails. They did a wonderful job of matching horses to riders. Our group included first timers to fairly experienced, including a tiny 6 year old little girl that had the time of her life. Her horse "Patch" was the perfect selection for her. Thanks again for "our best experience on horseback yet." We will be back on our next trip to Nashville.
Great people, beautiful ride – We went to JuRo on a Saturday, and, while it was busy, we didn't have to long to wait. I took along my son and two friends who had never ridden. The staff was extremely helpful, giving good, easy to follow instructions, and consistent guidance, but only when needed. The guides are knowledgable, friendly, and not at all intrusive -- and all of them obviously LOVE what they're doing! My friends felt very comfortable, and we all enjoyed a stress-free ride through the gorgeous wooded areas around the stables. It is such beautiful land that you feel like you are miles and miles away from civilization, while really only being about ten minutes from the I40 exit! $15.00 gets a whole hour, but it was well worth the $20.00 for an hour and a half -- honestly it almost felt too short!
We saw riders with greater experience than we had enjoying a more rigorous ride and more difficult terrain, but even with our limited experience, we didn't feel as though we were on a kiddie ride. The guide took us over some ground we probably wouldn't have thought we could ride, and we ended up feeling pretty accomplished -- definitely more confident riders by the rides end.
Children will love the environment directly around the stables -- peacocks and peahens running around, as well as the ducks, geese, chickens, and friendly dogs, all of whom live there.
I've been back alone, and I plan on taking some other friends with me in the future! A really great experience all around!
WOW!! Had the absolute best time riding here. You all have to try this. Great family activity. – I've been to alot of stables that offer trail rides and JuRo is by far the best. It doesn't matter what your ability-or lack thereof - they have a horse to suit you. Most stables will just put you on a horse and begin the ride...not here! The guides really take the time to to make sure you are comfortable with what you are about to do. I felt like a better rider after my ride than when I started it.
The trails are beautiful. You meander through streams, up and down hills. Many stables will not let you move out or rather pick up the pace but JuRo will. They even have a field where you can jump, run barrels, or run poles. (If your riding ability allows it)
JuRo Stables is a working ranch so you get to enjoy all the other animals too!! Guineas, chickens, ducks, geese, cats, dogs, turkeys, peacocks and yes of course horses.
If you never have tried horseback riding this is the place to do it. It is simply the BEST!!
This place is the best ! All around great fun, and terrific exercise too. – If there is a better place to go for a wonderful trail ride, I can't imagine where it could be.
Juro has the best horses (suited to the individual rider), best trails, most magnificent scenery (325 acres) and guides that actually will teach you to be a better rider. Our guide told us that his mission is to "get us back with big smiles and better riders than when we left.
He actually did just that and we had a ball !
Go for a ride at Juro and forget your troubles.
Breeze through long stretches or meander in the forest on horseback at these friendly stables. – In Short
Open year-round, Juro Stables is situated just off Percy Priest Lake, with trails winding through woods, in open fields, through bodies of water and ending at a ranch teeming with dogs, cats and horses. Guided and unguided trail rides are available. There are also cook-out facilities and camping locations for overnight rides. Hayrides and moonlight rides offer couples a romantic adventure. Don't know how to ride? Beginners are welcome and Juro offers lessons.
Highly disappointed, do NOT recommend – This was NOT what I expected. What I read online made this stable out to be the best. I happen to be an experienced rider, but was taking my boyfriend (who is a beginner) there for an afternoon ride. The man taking my reservation was quite rude, but I ignored it because we wanted to ride. When we got to the barn, we were right on time but they rushed us to sign the waiver and get on the trail because the people in front of us were two hours early and had to wait on us before we could all start the ride.
The guides, though young and maybe a bit nervous, were very friendly and chatty. The horses, on the other hand, were a different story. Yes, they ARE incredibly barn sour. You literally had to fight to keep them pointed away from the barn, and FORGET about moving out any faster than a walk! Even my newbie boyfriend was bored with the ride. Not to mention that many of the horses on the property were underweight, and their saddles did not fit. It almost made me feel guilty to get on my horse because the saddle did NOT fit her and she was obvously uncomfortable.
The fee to ride was $35 per person, which seemed a little high compared to other stables in the area, and then you were expected to tip your guide because that is the only way they make their wages. I've ridden at other stables around the middle TN area for much cheaper and had WAY more fun. I expected a lot more from this stable because of what I read online, but was VERY disappointed and will not be going back. Two thumbs down for Juro stables.
An awesome experience! – I haven't taken a horse ride in 18 years...but did so today with my fiance! It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The best part? They had absolutely no problems finding a horse that could handle my 330 lbs. The ride itself was excellent! I can't wait to go back!
Fantastic Time! – I had a bad experience with a horse when I was younger, and had not ridden in years, so I was nervous when my family went trail riding, but the guide was so helpful and understanding and my horse, Little Dolly, was so calm and obedient! It turned out to be a great time! My husband and daughter got to run in a big field and I was content walking. We went through creeks and beautiful trails in the forest. We even saw some deer and wild turkeys! Everyone should try this!
