Cody Bradford goes horseback riding with Lana’i Western Adventures
Hawaii, the land of Paniolos or Hawaiian cowboys. There is nothing like a horseback riding vacation on the Hawaiian islands; scenic vistas, the salty sea breeze, good horses and miles of riding trails. I’ve been fortunate to go horseback riding on several Hawaiian islands; the Big Island, Hana, Kauai, Maui and Oahu. This was my first time visiting and horseback riding on the island of Lana’i and I was not disappointed.
My guide, Cody Bradford, is a third generation team roper from Utah. He knows his way around horses and as a father of five, he is as comfortable taking kids out on the trail as he is swinging a lasso around a cow. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the horses at the Stables at Ko’ele.
