Horseback Riding on the Big Island in Hawaii
My all time favorite thing to do is horseback riding. On our recent trip to hawaii, I was lucky enough to find a great horse tour company on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The company is called Waipi'o Ridge Stables. Waipi'o Ridge Stables does horse tours overlooking the world famous Waipi'o Valley. The views are absolutely breathtaking!
We enjoyed views of the valley below, the black sand beach at a distance as well as waterfalls and lots of greenery. My family and I went on the five hour all day hidden waterfall tour.
The highlight of the tour was a stop for lunch at a beautiful cascading waterfall. It was amazing. I had never been so close to a waterfall in my life. Definetely a dream come true. We were able to swim in the refreshing pond, and we got right under the waterfall for pictures. It was such a great experience, and s much fun.
After having lunch, which was provided to us, we were on our way heading back to the barn. We rode at a leisurely pace, perfect for enjoying the wonderful views and learning about the area from the tour guides who were full of knowledge, and quite friendly.
Waipi'o Ridge Stables is definetely a must on any trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. It is not to be missed. from my experience you will not be dissapointed.
If five hours is too long for you, i know they offer a shorter half day ride as well, which i'm sure is equally good. The company's website is www.topofwaipio.com
