About Us...

The Painted Bar Stables offers camp programs to children, teens and adults of all levels. Camps offer a unique way to have fun, while cramming a whole lot of education into one week. Our goal is to mingle the fun of horseback riding with learning about riding skills, horse behavior and general riding information. Our camp programs give a complete education, from barn management and equine care to groundwork and riding.

Not all the fun is for the kids! Immersion is often the easiest way for adults to move forward in their riding. Lessons are augmented by demonstrations and lectures covering everything: barn management and nurition, basic equine medical care, biomechanics and form, how to control your horse at a gallop, and more.

Designed for a working schedule, this camp consists of half-days during the week and a full weekend long days. Short days will consist of lessons and lectures, while the weekends will add in distance trail riding components. We often video or photograph sessions to be reviewed later.

Technical Pro Camp
Ages 12-17
Intermediate & Advanced Canter Riders

August 12-16, 2019

Our Pro program is designed for regularly riding youth who are ready to go to the next level. Campers in this program are expected to already have barn management, horse handling and groundwork skills. Pros are comfortable cantering in the arena and on trail and are honing their deeper theoretical knowledge of riding.

Campers in the Pro Camp will have a choice of two tracks of preparation: Endurance Racing and Arena Showmanship. All Pro Campers will partake in an intensive lesson in the arena or on trail each day, as well as a lesson or lecture on riding form, biomechanics, nutrition & health, teaching pedagogy, and other various topics.

If you are looking for in depth learning, this is the camp for you!

Shortstuff Camp Days
Ages 8-11
Younger Riders of All Levels

August 19-23

Too young for Adventure Camp?

We offer now have a special day camp designed specifically for the younger age group. Shortstuff Campers spend the day feeding and caring for the horses, grooming, learning how to ready their horses, learning how to ride and playing games.

No experience is necessary but riders of all levels are welcome.

All Camps go from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Early drop-off or late pick-up may be available for added cost.

The focus of our programs is not shows, ribbons or external success, but the ability to ride safely in the arena and on trail in real life situations and to independently navigate obstacles. While our lessons do instruct using classic riding techniques, the goal of our program is to develop confidence, real-life skill and the knowledge necessary to ride or own your own horse.
