As novice riders, we were matched up with our skill level. My sons got 5 year old horses while my husband and I got 10 year old horses. 3 opportunities to cantor/gallop while on the ride. We didn't have to stick to trail riding as long as we kept up with group. Nicely paced. Guides are very friendly and love... More

This was our first time horseback riding and we didn't feel silly at all. Our guide was AMAZING and the horses were perfect for us! The views on the sunset ride were breathtaking. It was a little misty and rainy which gave us a beautiful rainbow to see during the ride!

We have a second home on the Big Island and through the years, taking friends and family to horseback ride with Paniolo Adventures never disappoints. The location itself is just stunning. Set 3000' above the sea level, the views are magnificent. We just went a few days ago for the sunset ride and we had views all the ways to... More

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
