When we first arrived at the stables, the horses seemed very anxious and agitated. We got saddled up and started on the trail but the trail was icy and the horses were not comfortable and despite trying to control them, they took themselves back to the barn, with us on them. I don't think my 13 year old daughter was... More

Was on vacation in the Poconos with my two kids. They had never been horse back riding so I was cautious on picking a place that would make them feel comfortable. This was the place! I made a reservation online ($42 pp for 45-60 mins), we got there a half hour before our ride to fill out waivers. $3 for... More

Beautiful scenery and a fun, friendly, and informative guide! Highly recommend. The horses are obviously very well loved and cared for. I rode Platinum and he made me very comfortable and at ease and I am typically terrified of horses!

My wife and I wanted to go horseback riding during our honeymoon. Neither one of us had ever done it before and this business was highly recommended. I can honestly say that I can agree. The ride was beautiful and our guide was very friendly and helped yes throughout the entire time.

This place was absolutely awesome! My husband and I went riding here while on vacation in the Poconos. My husband has limited use of the right side of his body and the staff went above and beyond to not only find him the perfect horse for our ride, but helped him to mount and dismount the horse. The animals all... More

My daughter wanted to try horseback riding for her 12th birthday. It was the first time for all the girls. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The ride was perfect for first timers. A walk through The Pocono woodland. Our guide(forget his name) was very friendly and gave excellent instruction. We will be back!

The place was extremely dirty (even for horse stables). The girl who took our reservations was extremely rude and kept yelling at my son and niece. The guide on the trail was nice however he kept talking about how he only works on tips and he works 7 days a week, like ok guy we get it, don't worry, we'll... More
