Cowboy Ride On Kaua’i

Paniolo means cowboy in Hawaiian…come be a paniolo with us on our Kaua’i north shore playground. We are one of the oldest cattle ranches in the state of Hawaii, established in 1831, and have been providing horseback adventures for over 40 years.

If you are short on time and want a quick adventure of riding the entire time, this Kaua’i horseback ride is perfect for you. Ride for approximately an hour and a half through our lush verdant pastures with spectacular Hanalei mountain and ocean views surrounding you.

On certain days, our Brangus cattle herd can be seen grazing the pasturelands with their calves at their side. This ride is perfect for beginners and intermediate riders. A true paniolo experience!

Our guides are educated in natural horsemanship skills and will share their mana’o, or knowledge, of Hawaii’s history, flora, and fauna. Come paniolo with us!

All riding levels welcome. For safety reasons, this is a walking-only trail ride. Experienced riders may also inquire about our private rides if trotting or loping is desired.

All participants need to be in good physical condition. No pregnant mothers. No recent injuries or surgeries. Moderate hiking is involved.
