We went to Painted Bar Stables today with my two daughters, 9 and 11 years old. Erica did a great job selecting the right horses for our skill levels. My youngest daughter was so nervous that she was in tears when she got on the horse. Within 15 minutes Erica had her riding on her own, going up and down hills, over logs and through a little stream. Erica is a pro! Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Watkins Glen!!!!

This was an amazing adventure! I’m a frequent rider and my wife is not. They were able to accommodate both our riding experiences. Dan and Erika are big time horse lovers and it shows. They are friendly and so reassuring. The horses are well trained, easy going, and great to ride. We took a trail ride and the horses were very comfortable on the trails. We saw deer and visited a creek bed. Would def recommend for all experience levels!!! All five stars from me🤗

On our vacation, I took my husband and daughter here for their first trail ride. Erica did an amazing job educating and entertaining us before and during the ride. They did an excellent job navigating through the COVID-19 safety guidelines. Erica was dedicated to making sure each of us was paired with just the right horse. Scotch, Gringo and Briannne were all beautiful horses that behaved perfectly. We are already talking about returning for another ride in the Fall!

Went on my first trail ride of the season at Painted Bar and it did not disappoint. New procedures but in place for COVID-19 safety which were very reassuring. The ride itself -- on Scotch -- was perfect. Fun horse, great scenery and guide (Jen). Can't wait to go back soon.

Ever since our first visit in 2013 I have been going back almost yearly to do on eof the longer trail rides with Erika. Always thoroughly enjoyed riding at Painted Bar Stables. The professionalism and dedication of Erika and her team is ground-breaking.
