My husband and I enjoyed an 3 hour lunchtime ride on this beautiful ranch. We booked a group tour, but ended up getting a private tour. We enjoyed our time on our horses, enjoyed hearing more about the island from our guide, and got some great pictures. The only setback was the weather - if it looks like rain, definitely... More

We are in our early sixties with minimal experience and we couldn't have felt safer and more welcome to the ranch. Our wrangler Gary fit each person to the appropriate horse, took us on a fantastic open range ride and shared lots of local history. You don't get this type of experience at a resort. Highly recommended. 2.5 hrs was... More

For the best experience book a private ride! It cost little more, but traveling over the wide open range, just you and your wrangler, taking on the grazing cattle, was an adrenaline rush. Giddy up little doggies! Thank you, Carina!

One of the must-do activities for families. We were first time riders, but Karina and Gary were super patient and professional. I got to ride Nui. Such a beautiful and gentle horse, I really wanted to take him home with me! My husband, our teenage daughter and me ranked it number one of all the Island activities that we enjoyed... More

I took my friend's 14 year old daughter on the lunch ride. The horses were well trained and more importantly, well cared for. The guide, Jackie, was a sweetheart. I have horses at home, and often worry about being bored on a ride. My friend's daughter was a beginner rider. Both of us had a really great time. I would... More

Jackie was a great guide. The horses were well cared for and had a lot of personality. It was nice to be able to spread out. This is not a nose to tail ride. We were also given the chance to trot and also to canter. The sunset was beautiful and the open ranch was so scenic. We completely recommend... More

Lovely drive from the Hilton (45 - 60 minutes) Our sunset ride was a perfect 90 minute ride that was STUNNING. The staff is professional and friendly, while giving good instructions and helpful hints. This was a trail ride where we weren't required to ride "head to tail" and was so fun to be able to trot, cantor or run... More

This is a first class trailriding outfit. My daughter and I had an amazing three hour ride with Karina. We both ride quite a bit and we were very pleased with the quality of the horses, the tack and you just couldn't beat Karina for personality and FUN! Where else in the world can you ride with the ocean on... More

Our tourguide, Jackie, was very knowledgeable and made made everyone feel comfortable. There were a couple of kids riding with us and Jackie made sure they were okay throughout the ride. We were able to take... More

We spent a wonderful morning high up above the ocean, with spectacular views and great horses. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable to the area. Nalu, my ride, was spirited enough for someone who use to ride a lot but had not ridden in many decades! The warm rain did not take away from joy of the ride. And my... More
