I am so glad I went! The horses were so healthy, well-trained, and beautiful. The guides were super helpful and friendly, and made the entire experience so wonderful. Will return again if I visit the big island again!

The women did a great job on education and telling us the history of the ranch. If you don't like head to tail riding this is a great location and allow galloping the horse in designated areas.

It was a great trial ride for my partner...first time he had ever been on a horse. For those who wanted to canter, there was a chance a few times to pick up the pace. But the big plus...the scenery. Wow, what a view. Jackie and Dariann(sp?) were excellent guides and very thorough. Just remember, this is still a trail ride facility. Don’t expect to run the Kentucky derby when you go for your ride. Besides, the ground off the trailed paths was quite spongy in places. Not good running grounds. Thanks Naalapa Stables!
