Fall is the perfect time to go trail riding in the Berkshires

DeMayos’ Bonnie Lea Farm is located in scenic Williamstown, just 5 minutes away from the 1896 House Inn.

During the late spring, summer and fall, trail riding is available at Bonnie Lea Farm. Trail rides are led either by Lisa DeMayo or by another qualified guide, and can vary in length according to the riders’ abilities. 

Riders must be a minimum of 13 years old and have the proper attire (long pants, shirts) and footwear, preferably something with a heel.

Their extensive trail systems stretch across beautiful fields, over gentle streams, through shady groves of famous Berkshire foliage, and even off-property for more experienced riders. It is a relaxing way to enjoy horses and the natural beauty of the Berkshires. All of our mounts are carefully matched with their rider to ensure the safety and happiness of both.

Trail Rides:
45 minutes – $50 per rider
1 1/2 hour – $75 per rider
Please note, they do not accept credit cards but do accept personal checks. Groups of 4 or more must send a deposit. Please call or email to schedule your trail ride!
