Horseback Riding at Painted Pony Ranch

Welcome to Ruggiero's Horseback Riding with Cowboy Pete!

Horseback RidingSince 1953, the Painted Pony Ranch has been the Lake George area’s premier place for family fun and entertainment! And right in the middle of it all is Ruggiero’s Horseback Riding with Cowboy Pete!

With one-hour guided horse rides for those who are at least seven years of age and pony rides for those who are younger, Ruggiero’s is a family-friendlylocally owned and operated Lake George landmark.

Jim Fitzgerald, President of Warren County SPCA, sent this letter to the Painted Pony Ranch:


Your ranch is outstanding.  The Warren County SPCA was called to the Painted Pony Ranch for a complaint that the premises was filthy and the horses needed care last year,  September 2015.  That was not the case. The Painted Pony Ranch was clean, no smell, and the property was well groomed. Our visit was unannounced.  Every horse was documented.  In my experience of ranch inspection in Warren County, the Painted Pony Ranch was one of the, if not, the cleanest commercial property with working animals this Officer has seen in Warren County.  I commend Peter and his staff and will use the Painted Pony Ranch as an example to follow on further inspections in Warren County.
