Mockingbird asking you to Sponsor a Horse

We could use some help right about now! Riding programs are closed due to the COVID19 Pandemic and the barn and all of our horses are financially in trouble without them! 

Animal care is allowed, so we can keep getting paid for board by clients who keep their horses with us and we can keep our staff working to come care for animals. So anyone who is responsible for care is still going to be caring for the horses!

However, only a very small amount of our income coes from boarding. It’s the riding programs that pay for everything. And ESPECIALLY at Painted Bar Stables where a majority of the horses are our own for you to ride! So it’s going to be a rough time. 

 Your support will help us:

  • Continue to purchase grain and necessities, which has to happen no matter what. 
  • Keep our staff paid, who we desperately want to keep supporting through this epidemic so they can keep food on the table at home. 
  • Help us pay our essential bills such as utilities and any payments that banks will not let us postpone

If you would like to sponsor a horse and credit your account or receive a gift certificate the BEST WAY is to send money to us via Venmo to avoid any fees. You can Venmo us at @paintedbarstables

Be sure to tell us which horse you would like to sponsor.

Please Support Us

We could use support during the forced closures!

We could use some help right about now! Riding programs are closed due to the COVID19 Pandemic and the barn and all of our horses are financially in trouble without them! 

Clarification on the Governor’s mandate:
Farms that produce food are deemed essential. 
NY has deemed equine farms non-essential. 

Animal care is allowed, so we can keep getting paid for board by clients who keep their horses with us and we can keep our staff working to come care for animals. So anyone who is responsible for care is still going to be caring for the horses!

However, let’s be honest, there’s very little profit in the income that comes from boarding for many riding facilities. It’s the riding programs that pay for everything. And ESPECIALLY at Painted Bar Stables where a majority of the horses are our own for you to ride! So it’s going to be a rough time. 

Sponsor A Horse

We started a sponsorship program to help us support our horses through this time of struggle for us.

If you would like to sponsor a horse and credit your account or receive a gift certificate the BEST WAY is to send money to us via Venmo to avoid any fees. You can Venmo us at @paintedbarstables 

You can also purchase a sponsorship directly through our online marketplace.

Your support will help us:

  • Continue to purchase grain and necessities, which has to happen no matter what. 
  • Keep our staff paid, who we desperately want to keep supporting through this epidemic so they can keep food on the table at home. 
  • Help us pay our essential bills such as utilities and any payments that banks will not let us postpone
