“Great Trail Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I had a great trail ride on Dozer. Caroline was a great beginner instructor on the ride and so friendly and personable. If I am in the area again I will definitely take another trail ride.

Thank you so much for this review. While I always like to hear from our riders I am especially happy when our amazing staff get mentioned in the reviews. Caroline is by far one of the best horsewomen we have ever had here at the stables to help beginner riders. We are proud to call her one of our own. Thanks for taking the time to point her out.

I'll tell Dozer you say hi!

“What a wonderful adventure this was!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

For a surprise for my husband on our anniversary I booked a 1 hour trail ride. It was wonderful. I have only redden a horse once before and it was not a great experience. This experience was perfect. The owner was wonderful to work with and the girls who lead our ride were knowledgeable and so encouraging and helpful. The horses were beauties and well cared for. The trail ride was not just a ride on a loop trail but an actual walk throughout the wood, through creeks and hills etc. It was beautiful, scary and wonderful. I can not wait to do it again. And my husband grinned throughout the ride and was thrilled. he wants to do an over night trail-ride this coming year. On-line booking was easy and the communications were easy as well! Can not wait to go again!

I am planning a third visit to Painted Bar Stables in 2014. The owner and staff are delightful, the horses are well-kept and well-trained, and the scenery cannot be beat. This is a must for those who love a great trail riding experience!
