My husband and I have been to Cornerstone Ranch on many occasions and have always had a pleasant experience. The staff is wonderful and are very accommodating to all their guests. I would definitely encourage anyone to schedule either a 1 hour or 2 hour ride. No experience required. They will set you up with a horse to match your... More

First off, the staff were very friendly here. Tom was a joy to talk to and he really seems to enjoy what he does. The horse that I was matched with was named Chip. Although he is supposedly the easiest horse to work with, I think he was having an off day. He seemed agitated from the beginning, constantly turning... More

This is a wonderful place to take a trail ride. It is geared toward beginner riders- but even experienced riders will enjoy this. The horses don't run- they only walk. The views are beautiful and the horses are well-behaved! Fun afternoon!

This was my first time riding a horse! Sue and her team made it quite easy, even for a guy like me with limited mobility. We rode for an hour; and I wanted to keep going! Lotsa fun. And that part of Massachusetts is just beautiful.

I first went there when my son visited a few years ago. This year so far I've been on three 2 hr trail rides and I've taken two riding lessons with two more booked. It's an out of the way working ranch but everyone there, including the horses are wonderful. Dress to have fun and maybe get a little dusty... More

First time on a horse but the staff and Chip made me very comfortable. I had a difficult time getting on Chip because I am short but Tom was a great help. The trail was beautiful, and the ride was steady and even paced. The only thing I would do differently next time is stay for 2 hours instead of... More

I went on a sleigh ride in March with four friends and a 2 hour trail ride just this past weekend at Cornerstone. The trail ride was so peaceful and beautiful, on-time with a brief but comprehensive safety orientation, the horses well-behaved (even in the heat!), and the staff friendly and happy to chat and answer questions the entire ride....

If this ranch was closer I'd ride there all the time. So we'll go for a fun day out as often as we can. Staff, Sue & horses were great. Exceeded our expectations and we will return.
