At Mountain Creek Riding Stables, we seek to provide a wholesome family experience in the Pocono Mountains. From guided horseback riding for kids to wagon rides to our pony rides for kids, there is a variety of family activities for all ages. If you’re on a family getaway to the Poconos, then you’ve come down the right trail! Make a day of it with horseback trail rides, wagon rides, pony rides for the kids, and a picnic at our riding stables. Enjoy the peaceful outdoor setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the cities.
The horse-drawn wagon ride here at Mountain Creek Riding Stable is a 45-minute ride that goes along the same trails as our horseback rides. Our wagon will seat up to 10 adults comfortably. This is a great option for families who may have children that are too small to go on horseback so that they are still able to get the horse experience. Another great part about the wagon at Mountain Creek Stable is that if you come with a group of people and some want to horseback ride while others would rather take a wagon ride then the wagon can follow right along with the other horses on the trail, keeping your entire group together while allowing them different options.
Pony rides are offered to children too young for a horseback trail ride. The pony ride consists of three circles, lead by one of our trail guides on a full-sized horse. This horse activity is for those children who are too young or too small to do our full trail ride.

We prefer cancellations be done over the phone, as we cannot check our e-mail throughout the day. E-mail cancellations will still be honored, but your card may be charged before we get to the e-mail and we will then have to issue a refund. To ensure prompt cancellation please call us at 570-839-8725 and, if it is outside our business hours, please leave us a message.
We have a weight limit of 240 pounds, though this is dependent on height. If you have anyone in your party who is close to or over 240 pounds please get their exact height and weight and give us a call or send us an e-mail and we can see if we have a horse that can accommodate them.
We also have a minimum height requirement of 50” for both adults and children. Children must be at least 7 years old to ride a horse alone but are welcome in the wagon with adult supervision.
If you do not see availability online for the date and time you’d like to book, then all rides are full. We do not provide availability via e-mail.
