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.

Youth Adventure Camp
Ages 10-17
Beginner & Novice Riders

April 25 - April 29, 2016
June 27 - July 1, 2016

An intensive adventure for youth, this camp is one that teaches from the ground up. Our adventures are geared towards encouraging our riders to develop the following skills: Relationship Building with their Horse, Problem Solving and Dealing with Fear, Barn and Stable Management.

All Youth Adventurers get a horse of their own for the week and will take two lessons each day: a barn lesson on a daily topic lesson and a trail riding lesson.

Adult Immersion Camp
Adults
Novice to Advanced Riders

September 8 - September 11, 2016

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.

Pro Adventure Camp
Ages 10-17
Intermediate & Advanced Canter Riders

April 25 - April 29, 2016
June 27 - July 1, 2016

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.

All Pro Adventurers will partake in a distance trail ride each day, as well as a lesson or lecture on riding form, biomechanics, nutrition & health, teaching pedagogy, and other various topics.

Shortstuff Camp Days
Ages 5 - 9

June 24, 2016

Too young for Adventure Camp? We offer one day camps for the little ones. Shortstuff Campers spend the day feeding and caring for the horses, grooming, learning how to ready their horses and playing games.

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.
