We went on the Paniolo Ride with Kirstie, and it was an incredible experience. Our group ended up just being the two of us with Kirstie, and she took us all over their 11,000-acre working cattle ranch with the most incredible ocean views. We were able to trot and canter with our horses, and Kirstie's knowledge of the ranch, island,... More

I believe Gary was our tour guide. He led our small group of 7 or 8 (two of which were my wife and I) and it was a fantastic experience. Gary was extremely helpful when it came to explaining a lot of the basics (I never rode before) and I felt very comfortable using the tips he gave me (I'm... More

Gary led our small group through the misty rain. Although the weather did not cooperate, the sunset was colorful and breathtaking. Because of the rain, we experienced numerous rainbows and we could see where they began and ended- right in front of us. The horses were well cared for and even tempered ( hi Ula!). I would visit again! If... More

Paniolo Adventures has an extensive range of riding options for people who were born on a horse to those who have never or almost never ridden. We took the city slicker ride, which was one hour. The tour started with a brief lesson on how to communicate with your horse, followed by a roughly 1 hour ride through the country... More

I am an old horsewoman and Paniolo Adventures really pleased me: the people are super friendly and approachable; the horses are definitely well fed, clean and trained; the western saddles are clean and comfortable. The sunset ride (9 riders and 2 rangers) was 1.5 hours over grassland and through some pastures of cattle. (I was surprised to see that they... More

Beautiful scenery. The ride was very well organized. Do not pass on this because you have little or no experience riding horses. Corrina does a great job teaching how to ride a horse. During the ride she keeps you engaged talking with you and guiding you. We only had time to do the sunset and it was beautiful. The weather... More

Me and a good friend did a 2.5hr private ride. We had a great time! Lots of opportunities to trot and canter and our guide (Christine was her name I believe) was awesome! We've been in Hawaii for over a week and done lots of activities and adventures. This was by far our favorite! Nalu and Shami were great horses!... More

There were 14 people in our group, we spent most of the time waiting for our turn to trot (and the trot was only for a minute or two), then walk in line to another "opportunity" to wait in line as each person trotted or cantered for one or two minutes. There were three of these "opportunities". Avoid "Ula" if... More

The four of us had an amazing time!!! The view was just breath taking, the ride was very smooth and peaceful. We had a small group and it was just perfect. Did some trotting and cantering towards the end and that was really fun!!! We would love go back again!

Thank FarmerMickey
