We took a horse trailride at Pa'ani Ranch as a highlight of our trip to the big island. We had a wonderful time on a real working ranch that also has numerous long ziplines and ATV tours. We didn't zip or do the ATVs, but the friendliness, cleanliness and order would make us pick them for those activities in a minute.
We were led by Hope and Brandi, two very competent Wahine Paniolos (cowgirls) who have a real passion for their jobs and were very friendly and knowledgeable. The owner and other employees were equally friendly. All very welcoming.
We've ridden horses in many states of the US and this is one of the best settings, with a menagerie of animals to see- llama, wild boar pigs, cows, miniature bulls, miniature horses, and goats. We took my 8 year-old granddaughter and she absolutely had the best time of her vacation. It's an affordable 1.5 hour ride on horses that are calm and compliant (although if you want to run, better to take one of the rides early in the day).
