In the lush peninsula of North Kohala, ride horseback like a classic paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy). Trot and canter through the verdant, rolling pastures of this active cattle ranch. As you gain comfort on your charming horse, appreciate the breathtaking volcanoes and eternal ocean surrounding you.

Arrive at the Ponoholo Ranch and familiarize yourself with its lush, 11,000-acre (4,452-ha) landscape. Get fitted with your Western-style saddle and climb on to your majestic, chestnut brown horse. With the Pacific Ocean extending before you, set out into the pastures. Meet some of the 7,000 cattle as they feed and learn how their rotational grazing preserves the land.

Once you're comfortable trotting, speed up into a canter, rocking with the horse's swaying rib cage. As you ride, marvel at the Big Island's massive volcanoes, including Mauna Loa—the largest volcano on Earth—and look across to Maui to see Haleakalā's chocolate brown crater in the distance.

Your time in the open range gives you insight into what life as a paniolo was really like, and you finish with a better understanding of these regal animals and their life on the ranch.
