Located only 1/2 mile from the Mount Airy Casino, 4 Miles from Great Wolf Lodge, and only 8 miles from Camelback Ski Area and Camel Beach, Paradise Riding Stables remains convenient yet beautifully wooded and private.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Avoid this place, it is not as described. The workers are rude, the guides have no clue about horses or riding, and the "trails" are not real, just a gravel track that runs in a circle behind the barn. Complete waste of money. Especially do not buy the "two hour ride", it is even more boring, at a slow walk and not faster paced as advertised.

“DONT GO!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Avoid this place! they are rude, not nice at all, they charge for security (helmet is to rent), the one hour ride is SOOOOO BORING that you can fall asleep on your horse!
You cant do anything even if you are super advanced...
And the best part: one hour ride is actually 30 minutes on your horse!!
Their Pet zoo is actually one sheep, 2 goats and one pony...

anyway, we felt realllllyyyy screwed!!

“overall experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

i completely enjoyed my riding experience at Paradise Stables, my guide (sarah) was very nice and explained everything that I needed to know in order to have a fun and safe time as we enjoyed our ride thru the beautiful woods . I will make it a point of returning again to Paradise Stables in Mount Pocono PA.

“Rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This trip convinced us to never go horseback riding in the Poconos again. The guide was rude and careless. There was no thought given to the distribution of horses. A young girl ( about 9) was given a horse that did not want to be with the pack, so she was left far behind. The guide did nothing to help and made fun of one rider because he could not get his horse to move. These people should just shut their doors.
