Painted Hilltop a hidden gem by Caleb Nickerson

Emily and Charlotte Becker pose with their pal Dusty, at Painted Hilltop Farm outside Otter Lake. The farm offers a variety of equestrian activities, from day camps to boarding, and the pair have big dreams for the future.

Deep in the hills southwest of Otter Lake, along a dirt road seemingly leading into the middle of nowhere, two sisters and their parents have started a new venture to teach locals about all things equestrian.
Charlotte Becker is the driving force behind Painted Hilltop Farm, located on chemin du Rang A, just off Rte. 301, and has been around horses for most of her life.
Growing up in Carleton Place, Ont., both Charlotte and her younger sister Emily have been riding since they were very young, though they’re fairly new to the business end of the equestrian world.
The family owned a cottage in Otter Lake, and 15 years ago, a chance trip through the countryside would change the course of their lives.
