Paniolo Horseback Ride - Paniolo Adventures
During a brief check in period, guests are encouraged to use ranch boots, chaps, jackets and hats to create an authentic paniolo feel. Then, guests are introduced to their carefully selected mounts. After a short presentation on rider safety and basic horse handling, the open range ranch ride begins. These ranch rides are not nose to tail rides. They allow the group to spread out paniolo style as they traverse the green pastures of upcountry Big Island. Walk, trot and canter (with wrangler guidance) your way over an 11,000 acre working cattle ranch located in the historic Kohala Mountains.

What a fun morning of horseback riding. The scenery was fantastic, the horses calm and the cowboys/girls leading us were great.
Great tour. Very windy late November. Horses were tame and knew the routine.
