The Newport Ranch is ideal for horseback riding. With over 20 miles of trails through redwoods, along streams, in open meadows and on ridge tops with panoramic views of the coastline, it’s no wonder that riders from around the world consider our ranch one of their favorite places, and some have been riding on the property for years. Give us a few days advance notice if you're interested in horseback riding on the ranch.
We’re fortunate that Lari Shea’s Ricochet Ridge Ranch and Stables are located directly across from McKerricher State Park in nearby Fort Bragg. Check out their website: www.horse-vacation.com. Ricochet Ridge Ranch takes individuals and groups riding along McKerricher’s Ten Mile Beach and also brings them to ride on our ranch. We enjoy having them stay at the Inn.
If properly insured, you may bring your own horses to ride our trails, and board them at Ricochet’s stables.
