Explore Piiholo Ranch and spend the day as a true Paniolo "Hawaiian Cowboy". Your wrangler will show you what it takes to get certain individuals or the whole group of cattle to move in a direction you want them to go. Cattle, not unlike many other animals, have their own space comfort. You will learn to get into their space to get them to move where you want. This is the cowboy way to handle cattle without making a lot of noise. There is always time to give a good yahoo when they do what you want! This is a great way to experience authentic Paniolo tradition in a safe and exciting setting and be a “cowboy for a day”.

My husband and I were riding Pecan and Bobcat and our guide was Morgan. We both had no riding experience until this trip, but we had no problems at all. All the horses seem to be trained very well. Sometimes they have their own will, acting like they know it better (maybe they were right, because we had no experience, so it's okay...). Most of the time they did what we wanted :) We enjoyed our tour very much, especially the stunning lookouts and informations about the island given by Morgan. Thanks a lot, dear Morgan, Bobcat and Pecan!

Me and my kids took the beginner lunch ride and had a great time. None of us had really had any experience with horses before, bes...ides a ride or two here and there, and so we were glad to have the option of a beginner specific ride. Not once did me, my wife, or my kids seem nervous or worried...quite the opposite....the boys were hootin and holllerin and wide grinnin the whole day. They still are telling all their friends about their "cowboy adventure" in hawaii. more

Mr. Anonymous

We went on the beginner 3 hour tour. Seeing all of the beautiful sights from horseback is a memory that I will treasure for along... time. Riding on a horse makes you feel connected to nature and enhances the beauty of what you are seeing. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to see Hawaii's beauty from horseback. more
