I was on the paniolo ride this morning and it was ok if you were a beginner level riding or had a little experience. For more advanced riders including myself it can be a bit boring because you only get a couple chances to change from walk to trot or canter. And in those few chances you only get to do it for a very short while. If you are a more experienced rider; about intermediate or expert then I would suggest doing the other rides because this ride was pretty much a "nose to tail" ride. The horses were pretty nice but did need quite a lot of leg power and you didn't get to see it at all; they just call you and you hop on then at the end hop off and you just walk back to the changing area; you don't get to spend any time with it when your on the ground. The guides are friendly but they usually stay at the back of the line so people at the front are pretty much on their own for where their supposed to go. Some of the horses didn't get along very well with each other and they has a horse length rule, but they didn't enforce it so all the horses were right at each others butts. Overall it was a pretty boring ride as there was only 1 trot spot and 2 canter spots. The horse I was on wanted to go really fast when we got to those spots and on the last canter spot my horse went into a gallop; so that was the most exciting part of the whole ride to me. I would truly recommend this ride to beginner riders and riders with little experience because it is a very mellow ride and it would be a good ride to start off with.
