“Wonderful morning at the ranch enjoying the great outdoors on horseback”
Review of Silver Falls Ranch

Silver Falls Ranch

Reviewed August 20, 2017 via mobile

Our family of five, including our three kids ages 12, 14, and 16, took a 3 hour ride yesterday morning, including lunch and a swim at the Silver Falls. Our guide, Steven, was very nice and personable. The horses were well taken care of and fun to ride. The ranch is beautiful. We enjoyed our brief swim in the very cool (about 65 degree) swimming hole and a yummy teriyaki chicken lunch with fresh fruit juice. The ride is a little pricey but it's a nice excuse to venture to the north side of the island and see the great outdoors on horseback.

I would give the location and ambiance 5 stars, we were 4 out of a group of 6 so the group size was delightful. Everyone had done at least a few prior trail rides, fantastic weather, nice stable of horses, greeted wonderfully. So I was at a 5 star level until the ride began, then we hit a pace that could only be termed sluggish. Tried to keep distracted by the beauty of it but it was challenging to hold the horses back at a meander, slower than a natural walk for them. We were not sure why, the other couple was closer to our guide who was loving having people to talk to. She even called ahead to the falls site so they would have our lunch there, but when we arrived we had to even further slow down and pause as there was a group still there just barely starting to mount up.
Because we took so long getting there she told us we would only have 20 min for the Falls and that if we wanted an extra few minutes she would be happy to send the lunch boxes back to the ranch so we could eat there instead. And that we could also just ride back in our swimwear as there would not be time to change. Our wet swimwear was no problem for the saddles. This was fine as you are only 10 min from the stables at this point but we were unfortunate in that we did not get to enjoy the day as it had been intended. All our energies were put into slowing the horses down so they were not too close together. But I can say its a beautiful place. We were on a 90 min trail ride with the falls swim, ended up with a 50 min trail crawl, lovely quick visit at the falls and taking lunch back. We ended up throwing it out as its nice hot but not too tasty tepid.
But you will love the beautiful place and hopefully you have a nice ride- we would not try it again, although we love riding. Five stars for the ambiance, location and stables, one star for the ride. Directions were excellent and easy to get to. We were here for the day off the cruise ship and had rented a car just to do this booking. We have also ridden on Oahu and it was incredible.

The tropical trail ride was FANTASTIC! Great view, lovely people and fabulous horses. I've done other trail rides with other companies in Kauai but this was by far the best! I would book with Silver Falls again in a heartbeat!

This was a very well maintained ranch with great horses and great guides. It was a very enjoyable afternoon for our family.
