Cowboys of Hawaii

Come and see where it all began, PARKER RANCH, 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 5000 head of Hereford cattle were held after being driven down from the slopes of Mauna Kea. The cattle being driven looked like a river of red moving down the side of the mountain. From there moving on to more historical sites, such as the Red Track where famous Parker Ranch Thoroughbreds were trained and still hold World records for speed.
