We had the absolute best 21/2 hour ride with Paniolo. It was NOT a nose to tail ride. They took us up over the grassy mountain pastures and allowed us to run them 3 times! It was so beautiful during the ride with a view of the ocean and watching the tall grass waving in the breeze. Our guide let... 更多
We chose Paniolo because of the beauty of the sunset tour and the well cared for horses. It's hard to overstate the beauty of the rolling hills on the north side during this tour. We could even see the faint outline of Maui across the channel. It was also fun to get to know our horses and their respective personalities.
What an amazing way to see another side of the Big Island. The leisurely ride showed us the lush green side of the island, taking us through a working cattle ranch with stunning views of Haleakala on Maui, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea. Our guide, Gary was knowledgeable about the island, its history and was a not only a real... 更多
We have been on two private rides and this is one of our favorite activities on the island. We were lucky enough to have Corrina as our guide both times and she is super friendly, laid back, and approachable and had great conversation the entire ride. This is a great ride for novices as the horses were trained for trail... 更多
We did a morning ride. The ride takes you through pretty ranch land, so the ride isn't dusty or dirty. We got to canter and trot as well. We even went through a part of the ranch filled with cattle who literally stopped what they were doing to look at us. The ranch is impressive and the guide friendly and... 更多
We took a private ride with Gary, our wrangler. We are a family of 4 with 2 who have ridden before and 2 who haven't. The horses were great and Gary was knowledgeable about the area and confident in his horses abilities to take care of us. We had a great time and also had great weather. Would recommend to... 更多
We went out for our 8 year old's first horseback ride. She rode Guava and he was a perfect gentleman. The views of Maui from the top of the hill were fantastic. We did the short City Slicker ride, but would be ready for more the next time. Beautiful scenery. Fantastic, hard-working women guides with a great sense of humor!... 更多
We saved the best for last and our group of friends booked the sunset ride on our last night in Kona. We were outfitted with boots, coats and helmuts before getting a brief but useful intro to our horses. Our guides were excellent - courteous and engaged, professionals with good hearts and a love for their horses and the landscapes.... 更多
Our group went for the sunset ride. First of all the drive up is very scenic and the ranch itself is nothing short of impressive. All the staff were great to work with and very accommodating. They matched horses to rider ability and you can tell the horse are well cared for. We had a fantastic ride.
