Jessica & Dustin were great guides. They were good at pairing the right horse with the right person. I got to be out front & lead some of the way since I have horse experience & they let me. They were both attentive with each...More

This is not your standard vacation trail ride. We were lucky as we had a small group of 5 riders and our awesome wrangler Dunstin on our morning ride. The landscape was so beautiful. The horses were really nice too. We had three chances to...More

The sunset ride was incredible and unlike any other 'trail riding' experience. The landscape was phenomenal, as was the view, and even the vegetation. The horses did not have to worry about gopher holes, and the ride was certainly more adventurous than 'nose to tail'...More

We have a young family so we did the "cityslicker". It's less expensive and still covers amazing views and trails. Check the weather before you book. You don't want to go in the rain.

Dustin was helpful and friendly. The wranglers kmew all 12 guests’ names and gave individual instruction as needed. The scenery is beautiful— my favorite drive on the island is Kohala Mtn Rd. Beautiful landscape at sunset, and they took great photos for us.

Amazing horseback ride. Hanna and Dustin were great rangers (guides) and very patient with the entire group. Beautiful property. This is not a free ride experience where you can just wonder off. It’s a calm ride.
