Horseback Riding Guide

Riding is a great way to enjoy the outdoors - and spring, in particular -  come on, let's "Saddle Up"

This site lists all the stables throughout the Poconos. If you have a horse you want to board here, view our directory further down this page.

Those looking to rent a horse for a few hours are in luck as there are several really good stables here too. Depending on your level of experience, various outfitters are able to meet the needs of most. So, if you're an experienced rider, several stables have horses that are up to the challenge.

Novice and beginner riders have ample choices, too. Make sure to tell the stable operators what your comfort level and experience is so that they can pair you up with a horse of appropriate disposition.

Horseback riding is not only romantic, its good family fun, too! It's also great exercise - and not just for the horse. View the spectacular scenery of the Poconos while sitting high in the saddle!
