Na’alapa Horseback Adventure
One of the oldest working ranches in Hawaii is the spectacularly beautiful Kahua Ranch. The experienced paniolos (Hawaiian cowboys) will guide you through lush pastures with grazing cattle and sheep and stately cinder cones. You will also enjoy the glorious view of the coastline and mountains. All of the horses on the Kahua Ranch are well trained which make for excellent riding conditions. Kahua Ranch practices maximum safety for the beginner, but also allows the experts maximum flexibility. You will have an opportunity to trot on your own. This is not a note to tail ride for your enjoyment.
