Explore Piiholo Ranch and spend the day as a true Paniolo Hawaiian Cowboy. On this exciting 2.5 hour activity you will get to ride through the Ranch into open pasture to round up the cattle for driving and sorting. You will ride through lush green pastures and fragrant eucalyptus forests with plenty of open space to ride with mountain and ocean views.
On the ranch, when cattle have grazed one pasture for a period of time, they need to be rounded up and moved to a new pasture of fresh grass; this is where the fun begins. Your wrangler will show you what it takes to get certain individuals or the whole group of cattle to move in a direction you want them to go. Cattle, not unlike many other animals, have their own space comfort. You will learn to get into their space to get them to move where you want.
This is a great way to experience authentic Paniolo tradition in a safe and exciting setting. After finishing the cattle work, you end up back at the Ranch Headquarters for a picnic lunch at the pavilion.
