Discover the magic of horseback riding at Ruggiero's Public Horseback Riding!

The historic Painted Pony Ranch has been the Lake George Area's premier place for family fun and entertainment since 1953. Right in the middle of it all is a family-owned and operated Lake George landmark - Ruggiero’s Horseback Riding with Cowboy Pete!

Hop on a horse and let Cowboy Pete take you and your family on scenic trail ride. Trail rides explore the ranch, move down along the river, and then travel through Adirondack forest. We have rides for both beginner and experienced riders aged 7 and older. For ages 6 and under we have pony rides - watch the smiles and enjoy the giggles as your youngster rides a "horse". Helmets are available!

Reservations are accepted, but feel free to mosey on in to the ranch!
