I am somewhat torn about the overall rating I am giving Silver Falls Ranch. I decided to go with 3 stars, but it is really more like a 3.5. Pros and cons below. The pros: * Really nice people. Everyone from the registration to the guides were very nice and accommodating. * They were able to accommodate my 5-year old... More

My group signed up for the 3 hour horseback ride. Being in Kauai, we expected gorgeous scenery at the ranch, but unfortunately the riding trail consists of muddy trails through what looks like tall weeds. I took my camera on my horse with me, but didn't see anything that was really worth taking a picture of! Overall, the "waterfall" was... More

Silverfalls is a beautiful ranch, the people are friendly and seem to work hard, however the ride is very slow and not what you expect. You take the horse out to and walk thru muddy unmaintained paths thru mostly a flat plain. No real views, no real picture opportunities. By the time you get to the falls, you figure, ok... More

Two of our daughters really wanted to horseback ride while in Kauai. We had a wonderful experience with Silver Falls Ranch. We felt safe, the people were very friendly and the scenery was beautiful along the way. The Falls are small so if you are looking for a big waterfall or something more than a relaxing horse ride in beautiful... More

I would definitely save the hundreds of dollars this very short trip will cost you and either try another company for riding or another attraction or even a nice dinner. This is a very slow walk with a horse on a muddy hill with no views (the trail is in-between tall brittle bushes) with a stream at the end that... More

The estate was breathtaking, as is the entire island of Kauai. However, comparing this excursion to the others we went on, this trip was lacking severely. The horses are never allowed to trot or gallop, and so all you do is basically follow in a line in a very slow manor. The "waterfall" destination is not what we expected. The... More

Jeff was great and allowed my wife to do some cantering and galloping along the trails, which she was really hoping to do. Happy wife, happy life!

As an experienced horseman, I sometimes struggle to find "trail rides" that are enjoyable when on location. My sister and I booked a private ride- just us and a guide, and it was great! $140 each for 90 min. Very reasonable. Dave, our guide did a perfect job. Taking into account our experience we got to push the pace, but... More

We used to live on Kauai and were always looking for new things to do so we decided to do this fun ride in Kilauea which is one of my favorite parts of Kauai. We did the Silver Falls ride and it's a two hour long ride towards the base of the mountains. You'll pass the Silver Falls that the... More

We did the shorter ride in the morning starting at 9 am. Todd --and his horse Wheels--was a great guide and instructor, easy-going but with wit to boot. We didn't successfully keep our horses from snacking along the trail, but we learned tips on how to communicate with your horse under those funny circumstances (the horses fast learn who is... More
