The Painted Pony is a local area attraction located near Lake George. If you are looking for something different to try or if you just love rodeos, this is a great night out. You can’t be in the Lake George area and not see the Painted Pony truck driving around with the big mobile billboard.
I am not the biggest rodeo fan but figured it was something different to try. You have a couple of choices when it comes to the event. You could buy tickets for the show or you can purchase a combo ticket which includes the show and a buffet-style Bbq. We chose the combo.
The food at the bbq was very good. The only down-side to the bbq is that in order to get a drink you had to go to the bar. It was included at no extra cost but I still found it a bit of a pain because the bar was packed.
Not ever being at a rodeo, I was not sure what to expect. I was actually pleasantly surprised. They had a few different style events. The Mc for the event was actually kind of funny and entertaining. The only thing you should be aware of is that it is bench type seating. I saw a few people with their own seat devices that form a type of backing. This might be a good idea if you have a bad back. The show goes a couple of hours with an intermission.
If you’re in Lake George and on the fence about going, I recommend you go. It is definitely a fun night out with the family.
