All week long, KHON2’s Wake Up 2day and Living808 are airing a special series from the Island of Hawaii. Trini Kaopuiki went exploring and found the joys of a staycation on Hawaii’s largest island.
The Ponoholo Ranch on Hawaii Island is one of the most beautiful horseback riding ranches on the island. Located on Kohala Mountain, the 11,000-acre working cattle ranch, stretches from the rain forest to the ocean and offers gorgeous views.
Paniolo Adventures has been doing business on this ranch for more than 25 years. According to head wrangler Corinna Oliva, this is where visitors can have a real “Hawaiian cowboy” experience.
Oliva says they offer guided open-range horseback rides, no experience necessary. With their 32 horses on property, they are able to match you with the right horse, depending on your skill level.
Kamaaina get 10-percent off all rides.
