EquiTravel Horse Vacation - 4 Day Trip

$1,500 Purchase required to enroll
(As always, we appreciate check, cash or venmo payments versus credit card payments as it saves us on processing fees.)

Do you want to go on vacation with your horse or one of ours?

For the past couple of years Painted Bar Stables has been taking people on vacations with horses - we have had AMAZING adventures! We go on many adventures across the East Cost on a regular basis. Some are for recreational riding, others are for endurance races but all of them are a once in a lifetime type experience.

We now open these trips up to people to bring their own horses with options to join in on our trailer or caravan with their own trailers (Painted Bar Stables horses are still reserved for students and regular riders at our stables).

What is included with a trip:

- the logistics planning and bookings
- the planning of the drive, stops and route
- the cabin or camping accommodations
- the stabling for horses
- the organization and cooking of human food
- the trail routes and guiding (potentially in two groups: intermediate and advanced)
-the photography, videotaping, mappings statistics and documentation
- the emergency travel supplies for humans, horses and vehicles
- the entry fees for events or access fees for trails
- and provide the emergency support vehicle for the caravan

The only added expenses would be food on the road at restaurants, fuel for your vehicle, and feed for your horses.

Starting on the day of the event, there will be absolutely no refunds. Please be sure to coordinate with us prior to the start of the program if there are any concerns.

Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID19 may be asked to leave with no refund. Please make sure you are symptom free before arrival. We strongly suggest testing if you are prone to "mock symptoms" such as allergies that may be confused with COVID19.

Why do we have these these cancelation policies?

In order to plan your vacation, we need to prepay a number of reservations for our journey including hotels, cabins, stalls, certain banquet meals and event registrations. Many of these are non-refundable.
In addition to this, there is a lot of work that goes into the calculation of the price of the trips and the minimum number of people. As we get closer to the start of the trip it becomes impossible to advertise to fill places left to cancellation.

Are there any exceptions?

Yes! If someone is able to fill your place on the trip then we will give you a 95% refund and only hold 5% as a non-refundable inconvenience fee.

COVID19 Behavior Policy SPECIFICALLY for the EquiTravel Trips:

We do not segregate between vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Our rules apply to everyone evenly.

Our EquiTravel trip participants are known for becoming incredibly connected throughout the week. For many, they make lifelong friendships. Because of co-habitation and intimacy of the experience, everyone attending the camp is required to get a COVID19 Test 48 hours before arrival (can be an at home test).

As a result of testing, masks will not be required when working within our camp community (other participants and staff).

If using a mask, we strongly suggest masks and face coverings that encircle the head and can be worn around the neck for easy access when not in use instead of those that rely on ear loops, as ear loops can become tricky when wearing a helmet. Bandanas are appropriate and acceptable.
