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

Surprised my boyfriend by booking the "Paniolo Ride". This was his first time ever riding a horse and he loved every minute of it! 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

My wife and I went on the Paniolo Ride. My wife is s fairly experienced rider, but I am not, so I was s little apprehensive! But the ride was excellent and our guides provided us with excellent direction (riding 101) and matched us with horses that had the appropriate temperament for our respective skill level. It is a free... More

My partner Karlin and I had a wonderful lunch time ride with Mana, on Peku and Nalu. Beautiful grassland scenery, with traces of old walls and berms from long ago. Lots of discussion about parallels with Ireland and New Zealand, and Irish and Hawaiian horse lines. I'm an near beginner, but Peku behaved immaculately and even safely took me for... More

We booked a sunset ride for just the 2 of us and it was wonderful. It had been at least 40 years since either of us had been on a horse (call it NO Prior experience!) so we weren't sure what we were getting into. The pace was perfect, the horses were lovely and very responsive, and our wrangler completely... More

We rode on Wed 2/25/15. This is a truly beautiful area and the wranglers seemed friendly and good with the horses. The barn is well equipped with items you probably did not travel from the mainland with. We decided to see this part of the island from horseback because the firm emphasized quality horses and opportunities for open range riding.... More
