Very down to earth staff. All questions and comments are addressed before and after the trail ride. Very well trained horses and treated humanely in all aspects by the ranch. Our guide Mark was amazing.

Awesome, friendly staff that helps even the most inexperienced rider feel confident! My group of 5 enjoyed the 1-1/2 hour ride with ages ranging from 15-82! The views are beautiful and so are the horses! Definitely an experience that we won’t forget! Thank you! Mahalo!
