Big Island Horseback Ride from Kamuela

Enjoy a Big Island horseback ride from Kamuela. This two-hour horseback ride takes place on the famous Parker Ranch on the Big Island. Come and see where paniolos (cowboys) and horses first met 150 years ago.

The ride starts at the Blacksmiths Shop, going on to the breaking Pen, through rolling hills to the Stone Corrals, where as many as 5,000 head of Hereford cattle were held after being driven down from the slopes of Mauna Kea. See the Red Track where famous thoroughbreds were trained and still hold world records for speed.

Advance reservations are required. Parker Ranch is approximately 37 miles by car from Kona International Airport and approximately 57 miles by car from Hilo Airport. It is minutes from the Kamuela Airport which offers scheduled service from other islands.
