We thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Erika, Tater Tot and Hermione! It is obvious that Erika is passionate about her horses and she wants your experience to be top notch. She provides great info before and during the ride. Take the time to read the info she shares on her website. You'll understand why you can't just walk up and ride the horses. You won't be disappointed and you'll enjoy seeing someone who loves what they do and wants to share that with others!

Erika and her team were amazing. They put together a great trail ride for our four kids. They picked horses that suited each kid’s ability. Our youngest started our nervous, but came back filled with confidence and thrilled with her new equine friend. Can’t say enough good things about the experience.

Be sure to ask for a reservation well in advance as you cannot just drive up and expect to ride. This is a well run stable and popular. All kinds of rides depending on your skill level. Well broke horses and wonderful guide.

Thank you for saying this! We do book appointments ahead of time to make sure that everyone gets the best matched horse for them - something not possible on a whim! Because the same people that reserve the horses and know them best are the people that guide the rides, understand that we may take some time to get back to requests as we are out on the trails ourselves with riders, away from the office!

Erika the owner explained everything very easily for us beginners before we got our horses
she led the horse ride through a forest and creek, and was very friendly and made it very easy to ride behind her. We would definitely come back, the horses were beautifully trained and behaved.

This ride went beyond my expectations! Would definitely recommend to anyone, no matter what your experience or age. We were a group ranging from 30-65 years old, some of us with no experience. The intro was so thorough that you really felt comfortable getting on your horse. The trails were gorgeous and interesting, with ups and downs, and crossing streams. Our guide was so personable and funny, it made the whole experience so much fun! Definitely check out when you visit the region for a fun activity!

We went there with two preteen daughters who never rode a horse but we had such a great time. The trail was interesting to both horse and rider. It included some interesting features like crossing a creek, open field for trotting if you feel comfortable with that and meandering through wooded areas.

In other places there is usually two guides per trip but they had one in the front, middle and the rear. Very through in their orientation especially for beginners. We would definitely do it again whenever we are in the Lake Seneca wine trail area.

we had a really nice ride through a wooded area. it was a cold, raw day, but the ride was pleasant. i was worried about the mud, but the horses were sure footed and did just fine. erica was our guide and she was aware that i had a fear of falling from a prior accident (non horse related) but she talked me through and gave me confidence to go up a bit of a steep hill and then down another. having a great experienced guide is a plus for me. scotch was a sweet horse to ride. my husband rode gringo who is a large horse and very gentle. would love to come again!

During our recent trip to the Finger Lakes area, my husband and I opted to do a 1.5 hour trail ride at Painted Bar Stables. It had been a long time since I had last ridden a horse, and we were looking for outdoor activities to do due to the pandemic.

I had been excitedly awaiting our visit ever since I booked it, and it did not disappoint. Both of us are novice riders, but Erika and the staff did a great job selecting horses for us, informing us on how to ride and how our horses' personalities affected the ride, and guiding us along the trail. I especially enjoyed the trail ride because of the fall colors and scenery and because it was exciting to be riding through the woods and across streams instead of near a barn. It can get quite cold, so I recommend bundling up if the forecast calls for it! I look forward to one day visiting Painted Bar again.

Katherine gave us a wonderful ride through the forest and over a stream. She was very knowledgeable about the horses and very clear in her instructions as my husband and I don’t ride often enough! We meandered through the forest and at two spots we got to trot. If you are a more experienced rider you won’t be disappointed as the ride is tailored to your experience. Thank you Katherine and thanks for the photos!

We love Katherine! She's so much fun to ride with! We try really hard to make sure everyone gets the ride that they need. While a lot of our trails are meandering through woods (not really optimal for trotting because... trees...) we do try to get some nice straight aways for people to go a little faster if they appear to be capable. We're so glad you enjoyed your ride and we definitely hope to see you again in the future!
