Is there any horseback riding in NJ? I would like to go on a romantic horseback ride with my fiancee.
Thanks, Varlene

Hi Varlene;

What a great idea for a romantic experience.
New Jersey does have some excellent places for horseback riding that are open to the public. Most of the trails with scenic views are located in Northern New Jersey where the trails are more rural and can take you through forests, some on mountains with streams.

I think you may have to be the judge of how romantic the horseback ride will be, but I can offer you some suggestions to look into.

Double D Guest Ranch
81 Mt. Hermon Road
Blairstown, NJ
908-459-9044
They have experienced wranglers and trained horses that accommodate the very beginner to the most experienced rider. They have horses and guides for all levels, matching the horse with your level of ability. The rides are customized to your liking. You can learn to "tac" the horses (saddle them), ride for an hour, two hours, a half day or full day. Ride over Double D 75-acre ranch and through the Swartswood, Paulinskill, Allamuchy trails and rivers. The rides are scenic and serene. They offer a variety of rides including; One Hour, Two Hour, Half Day, and Full Day Rides. They are closed on Mondays.

Echo Lake Stables

They offer trail rides along the paths of the ancient Indians in mountain terrain, swiftly running streams, and along centuries old rock walls. All

rides are guided. Riders must weigh below 225 pounds. On Friday and Saturday evenings they offer an hour-and-a-half trail ride with a one-and-a-half-hour Western-style BBQ, live entertainment and lots of quality fun with an old fashioned hayride at the end of the evening.
