Giddy-Up! Horseback Riding in the Poconos
We’re not the least bit shy to let the world know that we’re proud Pennsylvanians. After all, Pennsylvania is the birthplace of “The Great American Chocolate Bar” as well as the greatest quarterback in NFL history. On top of that, we cannot speak highly enough of the state’s natural beauty. Clean lakes, bubbling streams, lush forests, and even open fields provide an excellent landscape for almost every outdoor activity imaginable . . . including horseback riding. While horseback riding in the Poconos isn’t quite as popular as hiking, fishing, and skiing, nothing surpasses a scenic, two-hour tour atop a majestic, well-trained horse.
Once Upon a Time: Pocono Horse Riding at Woodloch
Many moons ago, Woodloch Resort actually offered horseback riding in the Poconos right here on our expansive, 300-acre property. The horses were leased for the summer season and boarded right on campus. One of Woodloch’s owners, Steve Kiesendahl, who was just a young whipper-snapper at the time, taught our guests how to ride and led them all around the property on his pet horse, “Trigger.” Many great times were had, but the riding ended when Woodloch started to expand rapidly. Naturally, guests have inquired about the prospects of riding once again amidst the region’s sprawling mountain range.
