A Different Kind of “Date Night”

Date Night Idea for Couples in Poconos

Why Horse Riding is a Fun Thing for Couples to Do!

We’ve all been there before: you and your special someone are looking for date night ideas, but you’re looking for something new to do. Well, Mountain Creek Riding Stables has you covered: go horse riding in the Poconos (beginner-friendly)!

Just 2 hours from Philadelphia and New York City, the Poconos are the perfect date escape!

Go horse trail riding all day in the Poconos!

Sure, when we think of date night ideas, we think of nighttime, but why limit it to just “after work?” Our stables are roughly two hours from both Philadelphia and New York City. Once you have your ride reserved you can start looking at the other things to do in the Poconos: skeet/pistol shooting, kayaking, hiking.

The Horseback Date Ride Itself

Depending on your skill level we offer a few different kinds of rides, but what if you’ve never, ever even been NEAR a horse, let alone ridden? Not a problem! Horse riding is great for relationship building, and we’ll support both of you along the way!

Our Mountain Creek Location caters to total beginners, so no experience is necessary! You and the rest of the group will get to enjoy nature in a way most people dream about. Our guides will keep everyone safe and keep the ride on time.

The More Intimate Option

While we know that going out on horseback is, in and of itself, a unique experience, you can also make the ride a private horseback ride! This means it will be you, your special someone, and a guide horse riding! No group, just you three out enjoying nature on horseback and relationship building!

Evening Date Night Ideas

After a day of adventure in the Poconos, you’ll find that there are plenty of great options for dining in the Poconos. While there’s a little bit of a drive to each you’ll find the ambiance and food to be more than satisfactory.

Local gems include The Jubilee Restaurant, Basso Italiana, and The Sarah Street Grill. Or, if you’ve got dinner plans back in the city, why not do dessert FIRST and stop by the Pocono Cheesecake Factory right on 611? If you like cheesecake, you’ve got to try it out…. it’ll be your new favorite, we swear!

So, right now, copy this:

“Hey, so, I was thinking of maybe doing something fun this weekend…”

… and open up your convo with that special someone, and send it! No better time than now to set up those plans! Or, if you don’t even need to discuss it because you know it WILL be happening, book a horseback trail ride online or give us a call at 570-839-8725! We’ll be waiting for you!

    […] Depending on your riding ability this can be a slow, easy ride at Mountain Creek or you can do a more adventurous ride down to the waterfall at The Ranch at Pocono Manor. Or, if you want something more lowkey, you can always look into a private carriage ride! For other ideas, feel check out our blog about date ideas. […]
