We just got back from Kauai. My only experience with horses was when I was six, and was bucked off a horse while with my grandpa on a tour (in Hawaii actually). Needless to say, I've been scared of riding since then. However, my husband really wanted to go so I agreed to try it out.
I'm so glad I did. It was truly one of the highlights of the trip for me. Our guide was CJ, and he was a real cowboy, from New Mexico, complete with the full cowboy clothes, and gruff exterior. He was hilarious (kept calling my "Canadian cowgirl"), and his main priority was safety. He had an eye on all 4 of us the entire time, and would shout out suggestions (or commands! :) ) to keep ourselves and the horses safe.
You can't beat the scenery - we saw where the latest Pirates movie was filmed and the beach and trail was just stunning. CJ would get us set up in certain places and then come and grab our cameras and take our pictures for us. Very helpful because I was concentrating all my energy on my horse (her name was Primo and she was fantastic). I would definitely return and recommend it to anyone who wants to see some amazing scenery and learn a bit about horses. If you haven't ever been on a horse and want to try it out, this is the tour for you!
