  • Mendocino Getaway Ride

    By on Aug 13, 2012

    I’ve ridden in several countries and the 4-day Mendocino Getaway Ride (June, 2012) was this year’s choice. My decision to ride in the States rather than booking a riding trip abroad was without regret. Look out Ireland, Portugal, Spain. It just doesn’t get any better than Redwood Forest, vast ranches and Pacific Ocean vistas, presented to you by Ricochet Ridge Ranch.
    Vida, my personal guide, is the consummate horsewoman, knowledgeable and safety-conscious, as well as possessing a 6th sense for the rider’s comfort and skill level. She was professional to a fault. Toss in hysterically funny and fun to be with and it made for great companionship and a memorable experience. Ask for Vida!
    My horse, Zvesda, needed a new name so I dubbed her Nadia Comanici. She was fantastic! Vida had selected her for me and we made a great team. Whether tackling the steep hills of the countryside or cantering the wide-open beaches of Mac Kerricher State Park, Nadia was a joy to ride and she remained my mount for the four-day trek. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
    To the solo traveler I say, ”fear not”. I flew from NY to San Francisco, grabbed a rental car, drove to Mendocino (an exhilarating and beautiful drive!) where I stayed at the lovely MacCallum House Inn. The daily ride to Ricochet Ridge Ranch was quick and easy. After riding each day, I spent hours exploring the tiny and picturesque town of Mendocino; taking pictures, shopping or enjoying a glass of wine back at the inn. Mendocino is walkable, friendly and safe. With it’s Victorian architecture, old water towers, abundant flowers and of course, ocean views, it was a true delight.
    Just do it.

  • WOW! Is all I can say about Ricochet Ridge Ranch

    By on Jun 27, 2012

    This ranch is so awesome. The people are so sweet and kind they make you want to go again. I took my grand daughter and she rode Hobo a very kid friendly horse and I rode Cowboy, both horses were awesome. Our Guide was the sweetest and very informative of our surroundings. Tracy was our guide and she ROCKS. Thanks Tracy for an eye opening experience that I will cherish forever. Thanks to William who helped my grand daughter accross the main Highway, he is a great kid and very pleasant and polite.
