  • My three sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our horseback ride on the beach. We not only checked "horseback riding" off our bucket list but we also saw several whales during our ride. We were all beginn...  more »
  • My daughter (11 years old) is an avid rider and has wanted a ride during our vacation. Despite all the national parks and other attractions of Tonto ride was the highlight of the trip, also, because I was sitting in for the first time on a horse. The horses are so calm and patient that nothing can go wrong. Riders who want to trot or Gallop on the beach are here however wrong. Tobi Ross was a fantastic companion, thanks again. Translation: Great, great great! Thanks to Tobi, my daughter in I enjoyed the ride. I can recommend this to those who do not expect to trot or canter.

  • A must! I booked the beach trail ride with Ross Ranch and it was breathtakingly beautiful! truly picture perfect! Tobi and her daughter Allie were our guides and they were awesome! Very welcoming, and friendly. They even offer to take photos of you on your horse with the ocean in the background. It's clear they take excellent care of their horses and their guests. I look forward to booking their forest trail ride on my next trip. I highly recommend this for solo, couples, or family riders. This was the highlight of my trip to the Mendocino Coast. Thank you Ross Ranch!!!
  • I promised my wife (then fiancee) almost 11 years ago that I would take her horseback riding. Life's busyness and then kids prevented it from happening until Thanksgiving weekend 2011. We decided to go horseback riding on a whim as we saw the advertisement in the Manchester Beach KOA campground map. Making reservations over the phone was a snap and we had our choice of a ride through the woods or on the beach. We chose the woods. A short windy ride up into the coastal mountain range and we were there. Ali was our guide and she was great. Very patient with all of us and excellent at getting my 6 year old son used to being on and controlling his horse. The ride through the redwoods was beautiful, especially with the clouds licking the top of the mountain ranges. Two hours on a horse was plenty long enough for us novices and we all had a blast. An experience we will likely never forget. I definitely recommend Ross Ranch if you want to go for a great ride in the Manchester Beach / Elk area.
