I have been on the walking tour at the ranch 2 times. It is very informative and it is wonderful to see where Seabiscuit spent his retirement years. I love horses and anything to do with them. It is a great family day trip.

This ranch lies in a picturesque valley near the top of Ridgewood Summit just off of U.S. 101. The scenery takes your breath away! You can tour the Seabiscuit ranch (make reservations) and there is an RV campground there as well. There are white deer,...More

The lovingly way they have kept the history of Seabiscuit alive is very special. The grounds are just beautiful and if possible take the time to look at the organic gardens.
