Afternoon Paniolo Ride
The 2.5 hour Afternoon Paniolo Horseback Ride is an adventure to remember. It is very similar to the Morning Paniolo Ride. Visitors frequently think it will be too hot in the afternoon to ride, but upcountry on Kohala Mountain is always 10 to 15 degrees cooler than at sea level or in Kona. All experience levels are welcome.

City Slicker Ride
We know you might be a tenderfoot but there has never been a better reason to saddle up and hit the Open Range. The walking only City Slicker ride is geared toward folks who want a calm and relaxing tour of paradise as seen from a perspective like no other. The afternoon temperature is pleasant due to the 3000 foot elevation and trade winds, and a great time to see the majestic Pacific, the Kohala and Kona coastline, all the major volcanoes and Maui. Enjoy rolling green pasture lands with grazing cattle. Bring your camera, relax and enjoy the views.
