Yesterday we went on the 3 hour ride and when we arrived found out we were the only two on it, so we basically had a private ride at a great price! Basic horsemanship was covered to start with and then we went off. The ranch is set in quite stunning grounds that has been planted with all types of tropical plants and trees. Don, our guide, gave a interesting talk most of the way around about the living on the island, plants, wild pigs etc. After about 2 hours we stopped at the waterfall and pool, had a bite to eat and then went for a dip in the water. Cool but refreshing. Instead of heading back to the ranch (about 15 mins ride) we continued for around 45 minutes more. The guide explained as there were only two of us, it didn't take as long to get everybody organized plus 'he never got chewed out by anyone for going longer'. On the way back he picked some tangerines off a tree and they were the best ones I've ever eaten. He also picked a flower for my GF and explained the Hawaiian traditional of wearing it behind the ear.
The peacocks, ducks, cats and macaw at the ranch were fun to watch.
Great experience and the guide was excellent.
