Hello Idiot Drive by 2x a Day Person: This is for you.Horse Expert. The Horse you saw "Celica" was a 28 year horse who we have kept for many years, and finally into full time retirement not ridden only taken care of until she passed recently from natural causes due to age. Most Ranches would have put her Down to save money on feed and vet bills, but we loved her so much we could never bring ourselfs to do it. She was Loved by many children, and petted and loves on until her passing. So as you DON NOT KNOW. Older horses do not put on weight, but can still live thier lives with confort and love and attention. We put her at the paddock up front so we can keep a constant eye on her because of her many geriatric ailments. To accuse us of not feeding our horses, ect.. ect.. Shame on you. We love our horses. Its idiot Creeps Like you, that makes me angry enough to write this review as not to Tarnish our ranch with stupid comments like this. Also, for those of you horse experts who Drive by, call us if you have any questions or concerns about the care of our horses the numbers right up on the sign. We would welcome that, instead of writing reviews like this.. fyi: sometimes a horse will lay down on a hot summer day and rest or sleep... THIS IS NOT A DEAD HORSE! you do not need to call the aspca, orange county sheriffs department animal control ect. to file a complaint, and have them do a 6 page investigation on our resting horse up front paddock. Dew Gooder Damage Control.

Its time Painted Oaks Academy gets an updated review. All the reviews on this website are years old. Painted Oaks Academy is a really friendly place. Lisa and the overall atmosphere of the stable is very nice. I have never seen anyone disrespect a customer or one of their employees. All the horses are healthy and lively. The trainers are very friendly as well and all the kids who take lessons really enjoy it. Their pony parties are amazing, hay rides, face painting and pony rides, there is never one sad face on any of the kids until they leave. Overall Painted Oaks Academy is a great place to go.

I've never had any dealing with this business, but I do know what a horse is suppossed to look like! I drive past this place 2x a day and there are 2 horses near the road that look like they never eat! Over the last 2-3 months I have watched them deteriorate from amazing horses to skin and bones. It is a shame that this happens, if you can't afford to feed them, give them to someone who can! Seeing these horses is enough for me to know I would never frequent this place, let alone pay for services. Barn owners whould be suspect to routine inspections to prevent animal abuse and neglect.

We went for Hay Ride and Pony Ride for $5.00 each! Great Value for Outside FUn. The instructor was very paitent and Polite, My Girls were scared at first, but the horses are well trained for the kids. Safe and Fun. No Worries They also do Kids Camps for Summer.
