The guide (terrible with names 😬) was fantastic!! This was a birthday present for my daughter who loves riding and is experienced. My husband, my 6 year old, and I had never ridden a horse. We could not have had a better experience! The horses were very well mannered and we had a beautiful scenic ride on the beach. If I’m ever back in California we’re definitely going there again!

Happiness is a horse ride on the beach. We achieved our goal. Karen was our guide and we had a great time. Pancho and Voltaire were our lovely horses. I look forward to our next visit. Wonderful people and horses. The views are amazing.

I rode Charlie and he was so lovable and friendly! Our guides Karen and Emma were great! They accommodated us as a party of 8 and most of us had little to no experience riding horses. It was a very cool experience.

My partner and I travelled up just to visit this Ranch after talking to Hannah on the phone. Arranged a 9am start for something that I've been wanting to do forever (beach ride) and was very clear about the steps we were taking to get up there.

Arrived just before 9am to be told there was a problem with one of the horses. Yeah, no worries these things happen so can accept that. Was told to come back at 5pm and traded numbers so she could tell me if there's going to be a problem in the evening as well.

Heard nothing so we then arrived at 4:30pm and were left stood there for well over 40mins waiting for someone. When Hannah finally appeared from nearby (where I'm sure she would have seen us arrive) there was still a problem so she couldn't take us out.

I'm sure your rides are great when you can get on them and I'm sure you'll get the place fixed up (currently looks rather ramshackle and horses stood in small muddy paddocks), but I'm down around $800 dollars all told and you couldn't be bothered to text me the last time as promised. That's extremely poor.

Had you messaged I maybe could have made other arrangements for my partner and I and saved a further 30 dollars in wasted taxi fare.

Left feeling rather disappointed by the whole thing - and then get an email after asking me about my experience! Kinda rubbing salt into the wound - maybe you might want to look into that.

Hannah guided us on a very enjoyable private 3 hour forest ride. Before the day of the ride, we talked by phone with Jake, the owner of Ricochet Ranch, about our horse riding experience, safety, and what to expect. My friend and I arrived at Ricochet. The horses were chosen ahead of time based on our experience riding. Oliver helped saddle the horses and load them into the trailer and we followed in our car to the trailhead about 15 minutes north on highway 1 to private land. I rode Voltaire and my friend ride Diesel. Both were beautiful, lively and responsive horses. We rode up and down hills on trails thru the forest with wildflowers and butterflies. After trotting a bit on the trail, we took a few breaks while still seated and let the horses eat some grass as a reward. We reached the bluff and rode with gorgeous ocean views. We passed a herd of cattle grazing and the cow bells which the horses weren’t used to made the horses a bit nervous so we had to rein them in a bit to settle them. Hannah was a terrific guide that was fun to hang out with and offered helpful riding tips along the way. We are already planning a return trip! Highly recommend Ricochet Ridge Ranch! Thanks!!

What a wonderful experience! We were guided by Hannah who was very kind and patient with my little one who was a first time rider. The ranch made special accommodations to ensure we were able to get in our ride before a storm hit as well. Well worth the price and a great time, I highly recommend!!
