On our vacations we always try to include a horseback ride as we have a son with special needs who just loves to ride. We have ridden in some wonderful places, but never gotten to ride on the beach. The weather was perfect and the guide was great! We had a very enjoyable ride and I would definitely recommend it.

My fiance and I had high hopes of an afternoon ride on the beach. Three hours of trying to contact someone, leaving voicemails and waiting at their office on an open day proved fruitless. Only communication we ever got was from a local we found that said ownership has changed recently and the service has really gone downhill. Good luck... More

If you left a voicemail that wasn’t returned, our apologies. This time of year we are very busy, and sometimes all... More

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.

When I was 14, I went on the sunset beach ride (1988) and it was amazing! This time I went with my son, 9 and daughter, 12, on the afternoon beach ride. 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
