Usually trail riding will be canceled if it is a very steady rain with 100% chance of rain throughout the day, ice or heavy snow. There is a chance we will cancel if the temperature is below 25 degrees. We typically will just delay if there is a thunderstorm in the area. Threat of rain, lightning or snow will usually NOT cause us to cancel a trail ride. Please show up 1/2 hour prior to your scheduled trail ride if you haven’t been notified prior of a cancellation. It is rare for us to cancel trail rides for weather. If trail rides are cancelled you will be notified via mail and telephone.

We reserve the right to cancel trail riding if the weather is unsafe for riding or driving, or if the weather poses too much discomfort for the horses or the riders. We will still hold the ride if it is raining especially in the warm weather so bring rain coats! If Cornerstone Ranch cancels the ride, a refund will be issued for the amount you paid into the reservation system. If you booked with a Groupon, the code will be active once the reservation is cancelled in the reservation system. Please remember to rebook!

Our trail rides are on the slow side. Sometimes a slow trot is acceptable to catch up but we don’t gallop or canter. We don’t permit riders to hold their horses back so they can run to catch up. This can make it difficult for the next rider on that horse and we don’t wish to have our horses ridden this way. We treat our horses like family and it is difficult for them to have continuously different riders on them. We feel it is best for our horses to trail ride at slow paces. Our trail ride customers enjoy the beautiful scenery, being outdoors and being around horses. We do offer riding lessons in our riding ring for those interested in advancing to a faster gait. We have really fun Accelerated Adult Learn to ride Clinics and Horsemanship Programs for kids and ongoing riding lessons for all ages. All bookable online!

We do indeed use a mounting blocks. One has two steps, and the other has three steps for really getting you up and over. You can request the three step if you want. 
We started using mounting blocks out of concern for our horse's backs. We don't have stairs to a big platform like some places because I have always felt if a person can't get up using a mounting block, they may wish to reconsider getting on to begin with.
