Horseback Riding Package with Apollo Farms


Spend the weekend horsin’ around!  This package runs year-round, even in the snow!  (But not if it’s icy.)

The Inn at Jim Thorpe has partnered with Apollo Farms in Palmerton to bring you a relaxing, fun weekend.

Whether you’ve never ridden a horse before, or are a seasoned rider, Apollo Farms has a unique interactive trail ride program that will allow you to get up close and personal with the horses and ponies.  The session lasts approximately 1.25 hours long and can be customized based on your riding and comfort level.  The groups are always small and private, so you’ll receive personalized attention.

First, their instructors will teach you how to brush, tack-up, and mount your horse properly.  Then, participants that have never ridden or have not ridden in a while will start the mounted activity inside a riding ring, where you’ll learn the basics in a supervised fenced in area.

Once you’ve grown accustomed to your horse and feel comfortable, you’ll go on a guided trail ride which encompasses scenic trails on their farm and nearby woods.

Apollo Farms also has a picnic area, so guests are encouraged to bring food and make a day of it.

This package includes a 2-night stay at the Inn, 1.25 hour horseback riding session at Apollo Farms, a $30 (per person) dinner voucher for our Broadway Grille & Pub (located just downstairs), and a $7 (per person) daily breakfast voucher at the Broadway Grille and all taxes.

Package prices (per person, based on double occupancy) start at:

May/June Weekdays $195 weekends $235

July-Oct Weekdays $199  weekends $245
