Painted Valley Farms offers a full range of training and lessons at our facility. We have the tools to start young horses, tune up the broke horse, and finish a show horse. In addition, we teach both young and mature riders, as well as add a little extra polish to a seasoned rider for a successful show season.

At Painted Valley Farms we can accommodate those riders with their own horses who wish to learn to ride better and/or to train their horse. We also support those riders who do not have a horse but wish to either use a lesson horse or to lease a horse for a period of time.

The goal of all of us here at Painted Valley Farms is to have fun with our horses while practicing safe and friendly horsemanship. Setting goals and reaching them.
