I've been wanting to visit for ages and finally had the chance last week. While I'm an experienced rider, I'm rather easily intimidated if the horse is strong or fresh...the staff at RRR did a great job of matching me with a horse that was forward enough to be fun, but had lovely manners and was well suited to my...

I have been horseback riding before and this place was incredibly unprofessional. The guide was so rude and the horse were not trained well. She kept cussing at her horse and wiping it, I have never seen a stable have to wip a horse on a ride. Horses should be trained to listen to their rider. Well these horses did... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your ride six months ago, but glad that nobody fell off when that helecopter buzzed the horses on the beach. We've reported that incident to the proper authorities. Your guide had to raise her voice in order to make sure that everyone heard her, which she was successful in doing, as her main concern... More

I visited Mendocino from 27th Dec - 30th Dec. I had a couple of things on my "must do" list and riding at Richochet Ridge Ranch was one of them. I looked this place up the last time I was up there. I requested a private ride because I wanted specifically to take photographs, and didn't want to disrupt a... More

I had a wonderful time on the beach with the instructor Zoey and the horse Cloudy! Being a horse trainer I can say that the horses are wonderfully behaved and the trainers are knowledgeable. It is definitively a trip worth taking! Thank you Zoey for the wonderful ride!

I have just returned from a 6 week trip up the coast of California and my ride on the beach at Richochet Ridge is a stand out. I am an inexperienced rider but my guide, Vida, made me feel confident and comfortable. She went out of her way to accommodate my schedual and made the whole experience both informative and... More

Simply the best part of our north cali westcoast adventure trip. Guides, horses, trail (including longtime along beach) were all excellent. The guide even took pics on his own camera and remembered to email them to us!

Our time spent with the RRR staff was more than I could have asked for. My husband and I planned our vacation to come out to California and try something different. We are not experienced horse riders. Larry and Vida shared so many incredible views, history about the area, and great stories. The entire six days were filled with so... More

While on holiday from England, visiting my daughter who lives in Fort Bragg, I thought it would be nice to do some riding. I booked a ride with Vida who proved to be an excellent guide. Our ride took us through woodland/forest on trails climbing the hills along the Mendocino coast. The scenery was breath taking, the horses a joy... More
