2020 June Horse Show

Success: June Horse Show at the Ranch!

The first horse show of 2020 at the Ranch was a fun success! On Friday June 5th, your pal Julia, organized a beach themed horse show for our dedicated students. Being the first event we have been able to orchestrate post Covid-19, we were very excited and pleased with the outcome. Students were so excited to be back in the saddle with their favorite horses. Julia’s goal for the day was to allow everyone a fun escape and to focus on having fun and enjoying the outdoors.

Not only did our students and their families join us for the evening, but also some dear friends. Everyone had a blast cheering the riders on, especially for the surprise class “Spin Around the Noodle.” In this class the riders canter down to the far side of the arena, dismount their horse and spin around a pool noodle 5x, and then lead their horse back down to the finish line. We had lots of laughs and made some long lasting memories while riders ran dizzily back with their horse in hand. Everyone felt great being able to forget about the troubles going on in the world for a while. Our next horse show is scheduled for August 28th and will be Pajama Day, we hope to see y’all there!

The Cat’s Out of the Bag: A Tail of Two Kitties in a Pandemic

Some of you may have met Roo, a sweet kitty at the Ranch. On or around last November, Roo exited the ranch for reasons unbeknownst to all the Rancheros (other than she may have been looking for a mate). Roo would make a great mommy after-all, and barn cats are difficult to come by. 

We were quite concerned about Roo’s departure and feared the worst: We would never see our beloved kitty again. As a side note: Roo’s brother Tigger was surprisingly nonchalant about his sister’s mysterious disappearance. 

Life went on without a single “meow” from Roo. Until one day this week when Roo appeared!!! She was a little thin and somewhat wild, but healthy and strong nonetheless. Five long months had gone by without Roo and voila! She was back with us! Tigger was very happy to be reunited with his sister too.

It’s fun to ponder what Roo’s adventure on the lam must have been like LOL Did she know there was a pandemic and was social distancing? Did Roo run off with Fluffy?
So many unanswered questions, but the bottom line is Roo is back and we are grateful 😻
Roo has made the decision to stay indoors for the time being. Please say “hello kitty” to Roo and give her some love if you see her outside when on your next visit to the ranch!

Healthy as a Horse…

A great saying and exactly what we wish for everyone and strive for ourselves.

To All: Please be well in body and mind; stay strong together; don’t panic, and be smart during the Coronavirus crisis.

We are super-excited to take you on a trail ride to explore the great outdoors. A trip to Cornerstone will be a treat and a sure way to brighten your spirits and create healthy & happy family memories. Please join us in the fun!
From our family to yours: Best wishes and much love; be well, from Cornerstone Ranch!

Cornerstone Ranch remains open for healthy outdoor activities. The only change we have put into place is we will not put our staff's health in jeopardy handling other's phones to take pictures after rides. If time allows, we will gladly take pictures and post them onto the web site for retrieval.
