The ride was amazing the horses were beautiful and clean! Friends of ours were riding for an anniversary surprise. Pete was very kind to accommodate our groups schedule. Our guide Rob was attentive and made sure everyone in the group was cared for.

I just rode at Ruggiero's for the first time with two of my kids. We've tried other trails in the Lake George area, and were a bit skeptical at first of trying something new. However, we were very much impressed. The owner, Peter, was extremely helpful and kind, and so were the other ranchers, including our guide, Brian. The trail was beautiful. The horses were very well-trained and well taken care of. Definitely a wonderful experience! We look forward to riding there again!

Ruggiero's has the most experienced Cowboys and Cowgirls anywhere I have been. I felt safe and was sure they knew what they were doing. The trails were well groomed and Cowboy Pete takes care of his horses like they are his children. Amazing family experience. Thanks Peter~!

Cool, the horse I rode. So calm and he did everything I asked, which was not much since he followed the other horses. They were so well behaved it was fun for my first time in the saddle.

Hi Pete! I had a great time this morning at Painted Pony Ranch. Kudos to you and your staff. Horses are in great condition and the ride was beautiful. Got to see a spike buck up close & personal!! Terry is an awesome guide and a special young lady. I enjoyed talking with her. I hope to return some day! Thanks for the experience. As I told you, I have ridden elsewhere in the area but enjoyed the ride much more at Painted Pony.
