    Great experience, beautiful vista's. The horses were fantastic (healthy and happy!). Great instructions for riders of all ages and knowledge levels! Would definitely recommend! Even got to gallop at the end. I can't say enough good things about the guides and owner! We will do it again next time we're here! Mahalo!!

    Great experience riding...
    Kent_P, Feb 2024
    Great experience riding horses and Maui would highly recommend. It was really fun running the horses.
    Beautiful horseback ride thru the Maui mountains!
    Anne_M, Feb 2024
    This excursion was amazing! The family and staff that runs this place are just the best -- they are SO good with the animals, and they care SO much about them! They also really want all of us riders to be safe and have a wonderful time, which we did! They fit each horse to each person, based on weight and ability, and they knew the personality of each horse so they would tell us each a little bit about our horse, and what to expect. The countryside we rode through was just beautiful, and we stopped twice for pictures. It was just a perfect day. I would definitely recommend this to others!

    Cole was a great guide. Really communicated well for everyone to feel safe. Was grateful he was one of our guides
    This was fantastic!
    Brent_R, Feb 2024
    The people were fantastic, very helpful and personable! The ride was at least 2 hours on the horses, it was easy, fun, and informative. We rode up into the jungle and down by the shore. The guides places us in the best spots for pictures and used our own cameras to take photos of our family as a group, and individually. This was, by far, our favorite thing we did on Maui. If we could give the staff, guides, and tour 10 stars, we would.
    Must do!
    Devon_L, Feb 2024
    It was awesome! My wife and I hadn't been on a horse since we were kids but we felt comfortable right away and the guides were awesome too!
    Best ride on Maui
    John_H, Jan 2024
    Loved the views and the gallop up the hill! Gold gave me a great ride. Road to the stables was a little rough though.
    Memories for a lifetime
    Sarah_B, Jan 2024
    This was the kind of experience you remember for a lifetime. The staff was super friendly, and our guide was a horse expert. We had some riding experience but were by no means experts, and he and the horses knew the trails so well they made it feel easy. He took us to amazingly beautiful locations and took our pictures. There were no other riders booked for our time, so we essentially got a private tour. It was amazing! If you're feeling confident at the end, you can ride the horses at top speed, which was equally scary and exhilarating. I could have spent all day just at the farm. It had a menagerie of animals and such friendly staff. Highly recommend!
    The most memorable thing...
    Wendy_F, Jan 2024
    The most memorable thing was the pigs that came out of nowhere on the trail. Cats at the ranch and all the animal. My husband not being able to ride because of weight limit. Kind of funny
    Amazing views / muddy mess!
    Deena_S, Jan 2024
    The views were amazing and it was fun riding the horse. However, it was raining that day and therefore we did not go on the paths where you see waterfalls. They gave us rain ponchos and shoe covers, but didn't get the shoe covers until we had walked through a lot of mud (which of course, included manure and urine). You should expect to get dirty and you should expect to wait a long time while they get each person mounted on the horses. The two guides were excellent. Bonus - one looks like Boston Rob! :)
    Beautiful views (and cute kittens)
    Carmen_C, Jan 2024
    The ranch has a variety of horses to match with people’s riding abilities. The trail was gorgeous and the guides couldn’t have been nicer. Well worth it! It was also fun to see the kittens, piglets and peacocks.
    Whale watching from horseback in the mountains of Maui!
    Chellie_D, Jan 2024
    I did this trip with my 19 year and 22 year old sons. I'm an experienced rider, they are not but the team did a great job of matching horses to skill and preference of the riders. I was extremely impressed with the care they gave their animals and ensured their welfare. The property before and after the ride was fantastic for animal lovers too -- with pigs, goats, sheep, peacocks and a cat colony. Cole was in incredible leader, alone with Devon and Jade. Very kind and conversational. The photo spots were breathtaking. Also, the opportunity to run was a highlight and I give kudos to the great balance they gave in ensuring no nervous riders felt pressured to do anything they were not comfortable with. An excellent morning and one I will repeat on future visits.
    Must do experience on Maui

    Great for a family!

    Dream come true!

    Amazing experience with a fantastic outfit! Our tour guides were experienced and great with kids. We highly recommend this excursion!!
    Trail Ride
    Melody_W, Dec 2023
    The trail ride was awesome. Our guides Sierra & Jaden were great. The ride was thru beautiful scenery, including a photo op in front of the ocean. Our horses were well matched to the riders. The horses were well taken care of. Everyone at the ranch was warm and friendly. Highly recommend!
    Very best horse ride!
    Kim_A, Nov 2023
    Instructions about the ride....gorgeous horses that were well trained and comfortable to ride! Instructors were very good at their job and very professional!
    Making great memories!
    Kristin_T, Nov 2023
    We enjoyed spending time horseback riding. The horses were great for me as a beginner and my daughter as an intermediate. The views were amazing and the guides were informative.
    Not all that is pictured
    Naomi_H, Nov 2023
    The property was just a mud pit from rain etc. we did not see the waterfall because of the paths being slippery. You do not ride the beach. The experience was a bit disorganized. The guide was great. I would not necessarily do this specific ride again.
    Response from Host, Nov 2023
    Yes we had a heavy rain the evening before the ride and there was a lot of mud at the ranch. All riders were informed that the trails are very wet and muddy and the horses will probably not be able to get up to the top of the mountain to see the waterfalls. Since that is the steepest part of the trail. Due to the conditions everyone was offered a full refund, a reschedule to a different day but those that wanted to ride were taken out. Our description states that we ride alongside the ocean and it states that it is not a beach as it is against the law on Maui to ride horses on the beach. I’m sorry you did not have the amazing ride that most riders do. I hope the next time you are on Maui to try this ride in better weather conditions.
    Awesome Adventure
    Lisa_C, Nov 2023
    I am so glad I booked this horseback ride for my husband and I. It was so much fun and the views were phenomenal. The guides were great and very informative about the island. The ride was just long enough and the guides took great pics with us on the horses. Thank you for the amazing morning in Maui and allowing us to experience your beautiful horses.
    Two thumbs up
    Natalie_P, Nov 2023
    Was an amazing experience!! This was my very first time riding a horse and the staff there took GREAT care of us. You have an option at the end to run your horse. Which was so much fun! HIGHLY recommend visiting!
