Paniolo Horseback Ride in Kaua’i
Paniolo means cowboy in Hawaiian….Come Paniolo with us on our 2,500 acre working cattle ranch on the North Shore of Kaua’i. We are one of the oldest cattle ranch’s in the state of Hawaii, established in 1831, and have been providing horseback adventures for over 40 years.
The lush verdant pastures of our ranch along with the spectacular Hanalei mountains and ocean views make for a memorable trail ride. We encourage our riders to spread out across the pastureland for a unique experience on our gentle horses. You will ride through our herd of Brangus cattle grazing the pastureland and during our March/April calving season freshly born calves can be seen. 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. All riding levels welcome. Total tour time is 2 hours. Come Paniolo with us!
