We got there about an hour early and checked to see if any reservations were still open. We saw there was an opening and asked Sue if she could take us earlier than expected. She quickly set up the horses with the sleigh. We had a private sleigh ride for 2. The ride was just magical. It had snowed earlier during the week so all the trees were covered. Sue shared many interesting facts about the horses, the ranch, and just overall fun facts. We had a blast. We were able to touch the horses afterwards and enjoyed some s'mores in the nearby fire. The whole experience was beyond anything I could've imagined. So romantic. We are looking forward to seeing what the ranch has to offer in the summer and seeing Angus (aka 'Bad Dog') again. Definitely recommend this.

We were lucky to have snow and had a sleigh ride. But the snow was so thin that it was very bumpy and a very short sleigh ride. We did not even have time to take a picture with horse and kids in sleigh which kind of was a little sad. Also it was very cold and no house to warm up. So the hot chocolate, s’mores and toilet are outside. Even the volunteers could not warm up and had to stay for whole time in cold. The small campfire was not enough to get warm. Most people left without hot chocolate and s’mores. So I recommend to come in long underwear, snow pants and snow boots during winter and snow season.

Situated on 24 acres of woods and meadows in central Massachusetts, Cornerstone Ranch allows riders to savor the colors and smells of New England with a two-hour guided trail ride led by farm owner Sue Connell. Cornerstone Ranch houses an assortment of safe, tranquil horses fit for riders of any age, experience level, or cowboy hat fluid-capacity, with riders receiving instruction on mare-maneuvering basics. Cornerstone typically limits the number of children on trail rides to two, enabling staff members to give young ones additional attention. Call ahead or book online at least 48 hours in advance for a reservation, and be sure to arrive a half hour before your scheduled ride time.

For emerging equine enthusiasts, weeklong children’s summer riding day camps instruct beginners in the essentials of horse care and riding. After a week of learning about their gentle steeds, students put on a show demonstrating newfound skills, followed by a celebratory party featuring pizza, ice cream, and horse/human arm-wrestling matches. Participants must be 7 to 16 years old, and bring along lunch, sunscreen, long pants, and closed-toed shoes with a small heel. Helmets are available.

Though Cornerstone Ranch sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon is still the best deal around.
