Looking for something to keep BOTH a 10 year old and 14 year old happy, I found Paniolo Adventures. I am glad I did. This was not the typical tourist nose to tail trail ride with a horses nudging along. This was a real riding experience. The Ranch is beautiful, the guides, Gary and Jackie were the friendliest, most down... More

We had originally arranged for a horseback ride with a competitor down the road, who due to a technicality, was not able to accommodate us. They referred us to Paniolo Adventures. From the very beginning, we had a very positive experience with Gary, the manager. He worked things out for us, and we were able to go on a Sunset... More

My 15 year old beginner horseback rider and 19 year old experienced rider had equally wonderful experiences. Wranglers were very experienced, patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

The whole experience exceeded my wildest expectations !! We had all beginner riders, a few their first time on a horse. Jackie was very articulate , and clear with her training narrative ,... More

Our hotel was able to make arrangements with the Ranch after other ranches were booked. Well I think we got the best experience. Our family of 5 did the morning ride with Karina she was fantastic. The horses were very nice but a little stubborn. We learned a lot about the area from her. We saw the cattle on the... More

Jackie and Lauren were great guides. We were able to see a great sunset. The guides were great in providing insight to the area and helpful tips.

We had a fabulous 2.5 hour morning ride. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about the area and it's history. The view was amazing! Don't forget to wear sunscreen and bring a light jacket. The horses were well looked after and were well trained.

My husband and I hadn't ridden in years, and our 12 year old twins had never ridden horses, so we weren't sure how this experience would play out. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very courteous, professional staff in a fairly rustic setting. The horses were very well trained and gentle and the ride was fantastic. Very beautiful views...

We booked a sunset ride and it was raining. Two of our group wanted to reschedule. Unfortunately, management would not accommodate a change. Those of us who did go had a good experience. I had a horse very responsive to commands and easy to ride. Some of the less experienced riders were riding nose-to-tail but the handlers made sure everyone... More
