My wife and I just completed a truly amazing 3-day private ride in Mendocino County. Everyone goes to this ranch for the beautiful beach rides, but I can tell you that the forested hills are every bit as spectacular. I was a (very) inexperienced rider. But our guide Vida had me sitting a trot, posting, and riding a 2-point canter... More

My husband with very little experience and myself who has showed and trained hunter jumpers and rides with some regularity spent 3 full glorius days on a private ride with Vida. It was beyond our wildest expectations. My husband, who in some ways was humoring me....spent one night looking up other riding vacations around the world. Then he paused and... More

With the passionate gracious guidance of a lovely 23 year old guide named Taylor last weekend we experienced some of the most beautiful parts of the Mendocino Coast and forest lands. Taylor has so much wisdom beyond her young years...leading us along Ten Mile Beach. maneuvering the surf, families, drift wood and elevations. She was always so respectful of both... More

My wife and I took a beach tour with the Ricochet Ridge Ranch, the guides were great, well informed and as a first time rider the horses were well behaved and well trained.

My daughter and I did a 3 hour private beach ride. Our guide Steffi was wonderful. The ride was gorgeous, and the horses generally easy to handle. In retrospect we might have been fine with a two hour trip but that certainly was not the fault of staff. Great brief intro. Glad they strongly recommend helmets. They customized our ride... More

My family had a great time with the horse ride and had a wonderful experience with Ricochet Ridge Ranch. My family of 4, including boys ages 8 and 13, have never been on a horse other than the kiddie pony rides. We had no experience on how to control a horse. Having been on the trail rides many times, the... More

This was awesome. I usually avoid 'touristy' type things but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. First time riding with a saddle and the guides were so helpful. Where else can you ride jungle - like trails and then on the beach! Deer, fawns, seals, squirrels- perfect! Guide are from different countries and fun to talk with.

Staff were nice, apologized for making us wait. Than took us on a little longer ride because we had to wait. Beautiful scenery!!! Would love to go again.

My granddaughters, age 7 and 9, loved the horseback riding on the beach. It was a beautiful over an hour ride through MacKerricher and on to the beach where we went down to the sand and rode along the water's edge. It was spectacular, and our guide was very safety conscious and friendly.
