Jackie was such a wonderful guide and it was lovely to be such a small group of people, which made it easier to enjoy the scenery and feel that we were going at a comfortable pace. The horses were incredibly sweet and easy even for a beginner like myself. The ranch is absolutely stunning and there is nothing compared to all those rolling hills and open space. My boyfriend and I also completely fell in love with Jackie's adorable pup, Kirby. Thank you so much, this was easily the best part of our trip to the Big Island!
