Had a great ride along the 10 mile beach today with my guide, Gina and my horse Cloud. Gina is a very knowledgeable guide and fun to talk with. She makes sure that you are getting the experience that you want. The horses are good too. Doesn't matter if you have experience or not, they keep you safe. I can't... More

I had read the reviews and thought they can't be that good but Lari's outfit is simply wonderful. Her horses are fit, responsive and very well looked after. The ride is spectacular and if your up for it long and fast. They really do cater for beginners and very experienced and you can be assured of a great horse whatever... More

I know that all my horses and staff join me in saying that you Aussies helped make this "THE BEST GROUP THEY/ WE EVER HAD" (as you and we all cheered around the dinner table at the end of the week!) Thank you so much for making it happen! More

We visited with three boys, ages 8, 10, 13 and did a "private ride" on the beach. This was money worth spending since riding, on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world, was definitely an experience. Our guide, Vida, was personable during the ride and very competent. The horses were well trained, and pretty calm, although... More

I haven't ridden in years and one never had. The staff was exceptional with getting us prepared and comfortable. Our trail guide, Angela, was very friendly and informative. She spoke of the local landscapes and area along the way. Our horses, Roller, a smallish Clydesdale, and Malega, the Queen, were both fun and easy to ride. The weather was perfect... More

I took my mom and i on a trip to fort bragg. While there we went to Ricochet ridge ranch to live one of our dreams, to ride a horse on the beach. The ranch workers were so nice helpful and very patient. The horses are so well trained and mine ( Natasha) seemed to enjoy the ride and beach... More

We went in the morning but not the first ride out. The safety video was informative. We had 9 riders of all types, those who had ridden and those who hadn't. We all had a lot of fun and it was beautiful riding along the beach.

We went at 4:00 and the horses just wanted to eat the grass on the way to the beach. A couple of the horses couldn't be next to each other and got very frisky and I feel off! Not sure why they put them together with us,when it was only the 4 of us riding,they should have used another horse.The... More

I'm sorry you fell off your horse, and very thankful you weren't badly hurt. Although the 4 horses being ridden on your trail ride have been doing this together for many years uneventfully, sometimes animals can act unpredictably. I do hope your next horse riding experience is more fun for you! More

We went on a 1.5 hour morning ride to the beach in a group of 6. All of the horses were easy to ride, and clearly well cared-for. There was an odd, old instructional video at the beginning before our ride, with way too many details, which made me concerned that the upcoming ride wasn't going to be very fun... More

Enjoyed a really fun and informative ride on the beach. I would do this again! Very professional company and it shows in how they care for their horses.
