Well, we arrived to pretty atrocious customer service! The blonde lady with braids, apparently she's the manager, was so short and very rude with us, it was almost comical. One in our group, who is a customer service trainer for large cooperations, left and would not even ride, she was so appalled. She had a sinus headache and chose to... More

Three of us (including my 12 years old daughter) did a 4 hour private redwood trail ride with Vida on Monday of Thanksgiving week. It was our first horseback trail ride! Weather was pleasant, and the view (overlooking the ocean and coastline) was amazing. Couple of horses were a little bit naughty sometimes, but Vida is very experienced and helpful,... More

My husband and I made reservations for our second anniversary on Halloween. The evening prior to, a large storm came in and was predicted to rain until 10am the next day. Even though our reservation was at noon Lari was honest with us and told us that the horses where soaked, the beach was extremely sloppy, and we would need... More

We are so glad we picked Ricochet Ridge Ranch as the place to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Day 1 we went on a private beach ride and Day 2 was a private Redwood forest ride. If you have to choose between the two- it would be close- but we would definitely go with the Redwood forest ride due to the... More

Spent the afternoon exploring the redwood forests up in the mountains overlooking the Pacific - what a stupendous view! I was guided on this 4-hour private excursion by Gina, a wonderful equestrian who was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and made sure I was comfortable and happy at all times. As a bonus, she's a great conversationalist! My mount was perfectly... More

I have ridden horses in many places around the World and there is no finer riding experience than the champian endurance horses offered at this place. Long canters through virgin growth forests, unbelieveable canters along every mile of 10 Mile Beach. All of this is orchestrated by the Owner, Lari Shea, who is truly a magical sprite. She will forget... More

I wish I could give 3.5 stars. I wanted to love this experience, but it was just ok for me for a few reasons. We were in the back of our group trail ride, and we couldn't hear anything that our guide was saying. He got a bit salty when we asked him to repeat what he was saying -... More

Had a great weekend riding for 4 hours in the redwoods on our first day and 3 hours on the beach the next day. Vida was our trail guide. We had requested her because she was so much fun the first time we rode at Ricochet. The scenery is just beautiful, the horses were well matched to us. I highly... More

My husband and I just experienced the week long horseback riding adventure provided by Lari Shea and Ricochet Ridge Ranch. We chose to do this as a reward for both turning 60 recently and a desire to do something different and exciting. The week of riding wonderful, beautiful, well-trained, and exceptionally fit horses through the Redwood forests, up and down... More

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
