Great treat for a 12 year old grandson

The horses are well trained and easy to handle. The ride on the beach is beautiful. Would recommend the 1 hour ride as a great way to entertain young visitor.

My husband and I, although Mendo natives had never done a ride with Ricochet until this past weekend. So worth it! The people were friendly, the horses were very fit and obviously well cared for and a look in the barn confirmed what I had hoped...clean (for a barn). The guide was friendly and great care was taken to ensure... More

We booked a private 3 hour ride through the forest. Family of 4, children 16 and 14. None of us have ever ridden before, but were well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed it. Amazing location for our first horse ride.

This is a second visit to Ricochet Ridge Ranch and we loved it. I took two 10 year olds and they loved the horses and the trail guides. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

The ride was very nice through the woods and on the beach. The staff was attentive and provided instructions for a safe ride. This is our second time doing the 1 hour ride with a grandchild. They loved it.

Riding a horse on the beach is a must do experience when visiting the Fort Bragg and Mendocino area. The staff made our visit a very pleasurable experience.

My son was grinning from ear to ear the whole time! The views are amazing and their were cute little sqirrels eating the iceplant flowers on the beach.... More

The ride was awesome!!! The horses were well kept and with me being an experience horse rider the horses were very responsive. The guides were very polite and they explained everything before the ride regarding the equipment, tack and how to ride the horses. The owners were very polite and they paired the horses with the riders to the best... More

This is the first place my autistic child ever rode a horse. He was very nervous the first time, and because of the special attention they were able to provide to him, he has had three wonderful experiences riding here. The beach ride is very relaxing and a great way to view the northern California pristine coastline. An hour is... More
