Totally worth booking! First off, the drive down to Waipi’o valley was a sight in itself. The hosts (Tracy & Seasaw) and horses (specifically Jackson) were great! And did I mention the views!!

We could enjoy the valley expedition with the well trained horses and the informative guides. It’s fun to crossing rivers and streams in the beautiful valley.

This was the highlight of our 10 day trip to the Big Island! We are seniors 66 & 70 and really enjoyed this relaxed and fun ride. Our guides Manuel and Cecil were the best! Would recommend for all ages and riding abilities.

A hat, sunblock, pants, and a closed shoe preferably with a heal. I would wear a shirt that shades your shoulders. I loved this experience both times I went.

Hi, we like to cap it at 200 but we do take people over this weight occasionally. It depends on the horses and who has their shoes, etc. If you think you may want to ride please give me a call at 8087757291. Have a wonderful... More
