Our first ride a few years ago was a typical but beautiful trail ride, where you mostly go at a slow easy pace. But then every time after that, the rides went up a notch in... More

I was looking for a trail ride for experienced riders that included more than just walking, and with interesting terrain. I found Painted Bar Stables online and liked that they offered different level trail rides. It was well worth the two hour drive from Rochester. My sister in law and I went Sunday afternoon and it was one of the... More

We took our ride on a Sunday afternoon- weather was perfect. My husband and I tried to get different horses but Erika fortunately gave these horses to our sons, who are beginner riders, and they were perfect for them. She gave good instructions before the ride to everyone also. The ride was up and down through different terrains and was... More

We booked a 1 hour trail ride online and Erika got back with us that night and was able to fit us in. Great horses, beautiful scenery, wonderful guide. Thank you so much for a great experience that both a beginner and advanced rider enjoyed. Very highly recommended!

It was a super ride on the Backbone Trail system covering the mid-section and lower portion of the trail system. The horses are in great shape. Erika, the owner, is an excellent guide and trail boss as was Ellen who took up the rear. Views east and west are spectacular. The cattle that we rode through were well behaved while... More

Great experience! We had booked a 45 minutes trail ride. First we got some information about the horses and how to ride them. Then we could begin and had a beautiful trail in the surroundings of the painted bar stable. Also special thanks to Kathleen for the great instructions during the ride. Definitely recommended!

My 11-yr old son and I had a wonderful ride. It was my son's first time. The pre-ride information given was very helpful and educational and used good natured humor. The leaders were fun and consistently helpful. The scenery lovely! We'll be back!
