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 family has gone to Fort Bragg so many times in our lifetime and have rode the horses a lot! Everyone enjoyed the trips.

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.

I spent a full week at Ricochet Ranch riding with Lari Shea and her amazing team. The horses were spectacular athletes and an absolute pleasure to ride. From the crew at the Ranch who got our horses ready each day, to the fast paced rides, it was a great week. We rode on beaches, in forests and open fields, each... More

We were taken on a magical ride from the forest to the beach. Our tour leader, Vita, is an experienced horsewoman who loves where she lives. She was very chatty and friendly...telling plenty of stories about the sites we would pass by. After some safety training at the ranch, we hopped on our horses and did a short trek through... More

I've always wanted to ride on the beach, so we did while we were on our vacation. Begins with a tutorial video before getting on your horse. The staff is friendly and young but knowledgeable. The tour guide is attentive to all the horses while the group is riding, offers to take pictures and gives advice on the horses your... More

For our second anniversary I was surprised with horseback riding on the beach! Just the thought sounds so romantic & this place fulfilled & exceeded our expectations! Fort Bragg is so beautiful & besides the fact that the weather could not have been better, all of the workers at the ranch were so sweet & helpful, especially Vida who took... More

My daughter and I went on the 4 hour ride and it was like riding through an enchanted land! It was an adventure to explore the wild and raw landscape of the Simcha Ranch up close. Vida, our guide, was so knowledgeable, and highlighted many parts of the ride with her observations of the terrain. Our horses were full of... More

Brought my daughters here to experience their first house back ride. Safety first. Nice staff. The property is very easy to find. Ages 6+ can ride. This is a guided ride along the edge of McKerricher State Park to the coastline. If you are lucky enough to be in a small group they will guide your horse through the waters... More
