Wagon Rides in the Poconos


Wagon rides are the most accessible activity that we offer. People young and old can enjoy the ride together, it’s makes for great summer fun with kids! Even those with disabilities, in almost all cases, be accommodated, so it’s a great way to get the entire family together for an experience everyone can share together.

Wagon rides are offered on Saturdays at The Ranch at Pocono Manor and Sundays at Mountain Creek Riding Stable from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM and reservations are strongly recommended in either case.

The Barnyard Petting Zoo


Our small Barnyard Petting Zoo can be just the thing to make you kid’s day, it’s the perfect thing to do with kids in the Poconos. We have ducks, chickens, donkeys and goats that your child can see and interact with. It’s a great way for them to be introduced to the animals they’ve read about in books. It’s open daily from 10:00 a.m. to about 3:00 p.m. at The Ranch at Pocono Manor.

Horse Riding for Kids and Teens


If you’re searching for Poconos outdoor adventures that suit the whole family, try the trail rides! Maybe you have a teenager who would be bored on a wagon ride, but you also have a toddler and Grandma in tow. While you take Grandma and the baby on the wagon ride, you can send your older child on a full Trail Ride. The child gets to ride their own horse and go out with a group and a guide.

Children have to be 10+ years old to ride at The Ranch and 7+ years old to ride at The Creek, and in both cases they must be 50″ tall to ride. If you decide to do the wagon ride at The Creek it goes out on the same trails as the Trail Ride…. so you might even cross paths and see your rider from the wagon!

Summer Fun for Kids Makes Memories!


Introducing your children to horses is a memorable and bonding experience. We find that families come back as their children grow up so they can share new, fun experiences. A family tradition of horseback ride together!

This summer maximize your summer fun for kids and come visit us at Mountain Creek Riding Stable or The Ranch at Pocono Manor!
