"My daughter and I went on the 4 hour ride and it was like riding through an enchanted land! It was an adventure to explore the wild and raw landscape of the Simcha Ranch up close. Vida, our guide, was so knowledgeable, and highlighted many parts of the ride with her observations of the terrain. Our horses were full of confidence and energy, and gave us a super pleasurable experience. They were sure footed trail masters and cantered the hills and paths with power and agility. We had a fabulous time! I should add, we have horses of our own and trail ride several times a week in the forests where we live. Yet this was a unique and thrilling experience for us. We hope to come back soon!

"Thanks again for the memories, we hope to come back and ride the beaches next time. Tell Vida howdy for us!"

-- Angela
