Vendor: Princeville Ranch Adventures
IMAGINE a peaceful ride on gentle horses, ambling across a private, working cattle ranch! This unique adventure begins with 30 minutes on horseback, soaking up panoramic views of mountains, valleys and the ocean. You might even find yourself riding through our herd of cows and calves! Along the way, your guide will share ranch and paniolo history with the true spirit of aloha. This horseback ride is safe for the first-time rider and enjoyable for the experienced as well!
