What You'll Get
Establish a kindred horse-human connection with today's side deal. For $35, you get an approximately two-hour guided trail ride at Cornerstone Ranch (a $70 value). Cornerstone Ranch is located about 60 miles from Boston in Princeton, MA.
Cornerstone Ranch is situated on 24 acres of woods and meadows in central Massachusetts. Savor the colors and smells of a New England autumn astride a steed with the two-hour guided trail ride, which is led by Sue Connell, the farm's owner. Sue draws on more than 20 years of riding experience as she instructs you on the basics of mounting your safe, tranquil horse and riding it through Cornerstone's winding trails. No need to dust off old chaps or practice your gallop, because Cornerstone Ranch has a horse fit for any size or experience level of rider. Call ahead at least 48 hours in advance for a reservation. Cornerstone Ranch typically limits their trail rides to two to three children—if there are more children, they will either split up the ride or structure the ride like a birthday party.
Riders must be at least six years old. There is a weight limit of 260 pounds per person. Only one person per horse.
Here are some customer testimonials Cornerstone Ranch sent us:
...seated astride a calm horse while Sue Connell, the owner of Cornerstone and the instructor explained important points of riding and some stretching exercises before leading the group off on a trail through the woods, along country roads, a power line, and through a christmas tree farm before returning to her barn ... I enjoyed pushing aside the stress of daily life and enjoying the moment while recalling some happy memories of time in the saddle. Before the ride was over, I knew I wanted more. I'll be back. – Gary
