We went for the sunset ride. We are very experienced riders. The horses are acceptable but really have to drive them for anything more than just a walk - not a lot canter or trot. The team at the barn do a great job of getting riders ready. The scenery and the sunset make this ride worthwhile.

The best part of this trip was the scenery. I can't get over how beautiful it was. It's hard to find this type of landscape anywhere else. The grass was so green and the sunset was beautiful. There are also cows that you get to see on the trip. The ride wasn't boring but it wasn't hard either. They let... More

Went on a guided horse tour through Paniolo Adventures and wasn't disappointed. The scenery is beautiful with the ocean and rolling hills. I'm a beginner rider and everything was made to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our trip. Highly recommend! Make sure to wear layers it is definitely cooler up at the ranch then down in the Kona... More

Really enjoyed this ride. Great, well cared for horses. They facility is able to handle people w more or less riding experience very well. The views are lovely (really gorgeous) and the ride was interesting. Sunset was incredible. Staff was very friendly and it was just a wonderful experience overall. I am not usually a fan of tourist trail rides,... More

Although I'm an experienced rider, my husband and friends are not so I had some concerns about how they would find the Sunset Ride. I need not have worried. From the very start it was clear that the stables were well run, the horses were relaxed and happy and the team there knew what they were doing. We all had... More

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
