We had an excellent ride! The employees were friendly and helpful. They were all very concerned with safety and made sure we knew how and what to do. The horses were well cared for. We definitely can't wait to come back for a longer ride!

My husband and I enjoyed our 4 hour ride with Vida. She paired us with horses that fit our personalities like she had known us forever, even though we had only just met. We braved the rain and are so glad we did. Vida was also full of life and shared her lively stories with us. She and my husband... More

How exciting that you saw a cougar! We're always thrilled when we share our trails with our neighboring wildlife, but I have to admit, it doesn't happen often that cougars show up. Lucky you! Happy trails, Lari More

Boyfriend and I are SF city dwellers and were first time riders. Just as we were instructed, we pretty much just thought about the direction we wanted to go and the horse went. We were well informed thanks to the oldie but goodie instructional video. Our guide Taylor was super sweet and knowledgeable. Highly recommended to give your patronage to... More

Morning after a storm. Carolyn our guide. Great friendly horses. Through a little redwood forest on the way to the beach trail. Just wish we'd gotten a chance to trot or gallop, but tide was too high. beautiful gray black sand and driftwood. A rainbow!

The six day riding vacation at Ricochet was my first ever riding trip, and boy did they set the bar high for the next one! Everyone who works at the ranch was just amazing, so, so helpful and really, really great at what they do! I absolutely LOVED the horse, Whisper, I was put on to ride, I felt very... More

It was wonderful for us (and for Whisper) to share our trails with you, Ruby. You and Whisper are two of a kind, from your beautiful long hair (or in his case, mane) to your feisty, adventurous personalities. You bring such positive enthusiasm into everything you do...I hope all your journeys in life bring you much pleasure! More

very very disappointing. Drove to Fort Bragg to do this in the hopes of some thrills. There were only four of us but one was a young child that the guide felt needed to be led so we all walked nose to tail the entire time! very very boring.

My Mom and I planned a girls get away to Ricochet Ranch to rekindle our love of riding together. We used to own horses and LOVED our days of riding through the hills and being with these amazing animals. We spent three days riding at Ricochet with our delightful guide Taylor. Our experience was more than we could have imagined.... More
