My family and I have taken quite a few trail rides over the years and we wanted something a little different while visiting Hawaii. Paniolo boasts itself on not being a typical nose to butt trail horse ride. They encourage you to spread out as they work their way across grassy fields of the working cattle ranch. The wranglers were... More

This was my husband's first time on a horse and my second time and we really enjoyed ourselves. The horses are well trained and it was nice being off trail with them during our "City Slicker" ride. We had a long time riding through the valley and it's clear our guide and the owners really care about the horses and... More

My wife and I had the most amazing time during the lunch ride. Our guide Manu (spelling?) was great. He had intimate knowledge about the area and definitely was good a what he did and cared that we enjoyed ourselves. The views and rolling fields were just breathtaking. We were definitely please with the entire experience and especially with the... More

Our guide was on her cell phone way too much, talking about her addiction to instagram. She should not have had it out one single time - no professionalism!! She gave no helpful information or guide-like stories that I thought I was paying for. I wanted to hear about the history of ranching there or natural history or anything! She... More

I took my 9 year old daughter today for the 9:30am ride and we both loved it. Gary, our trail guide, was very friendly and made sure everyone had an enjoyable time. All of the horses in the group were very well behaved and the scenery in the green rolling hills over looking the ocean was just spectacular. We'll be... More

If you want to see the ocean from the mountainside, ride a horse through pastures with a gentle breeze blowing, then this is a must for you!!!! Paniolo Adventures staff is first-rate. They easily match riders with horses, let one borrow riding boots, and don't waste anytime getting to the ride. The views from horseback are breathtaking!!!! The riding pace... More

Our family of four had a great time. We are a mix of experience with riding but all if us enjoyed the 2.5 hour ride. It is not just a single file ride, but a mix of walking, trotting, and cantering. The horses were well matched to our experience. The trek through a working ranch, actually seeing the cowboys at... More

We (15 year old and 50ish) went on a beautiful day. We are both experienced riders and were in a mixed group. We were all paired to a perfect horse! The ride was a lot of fun. The guides were really friendly and the horses were very cooperative. I (the 50ish yr old gal) went on my own and was... More

They gave my sister a horse that wasn't even tame! it didnt follow directions, even when the girl in charge tried to take control. it was a very dangerous experience. my family paid for four people to ride for 2.5 hours, we rode for 10 minutes and got no compensation whatsoever for her pain and suffering. i wouldnt go on...
