My mom and I were the only two people in our family that wanted to do a horseback ride while in Maui and we had passed this place on the way to the national park, so I checked it out online and saw a lot of great reviews. We weren't disappointed. We booked the 11:30 ride with Johnny and wound... More

If you like a trail horse ride, this is a good one. It is halfway up the road to Haleakala, and you ride in a big ranch. Scenery is spectacular. Our wrangler was Johnny, who my kids loved and was an incredibly cool human being! Another activity we would do again in a minute! Our ride was the 8 AM... More

We would have to agree with the other reviews, Johnny was very professional and works hard to give everyone a "great" ride. We did the two (2) hour 8:30AM ride and it was a perfect. The weather was perfect and the temp. was not to hot. As for the views on the ride they were nothing but speculator. (do remember... More

Johnny our tour guide was terrific making us feel comfortable on our horses and the uneven terrain. he was also very educational about all we were seeing. I had only taken a couple of lesson to get ready for this trip and it was worth the investment. Be prepared it is a breath taking ride however it is very long... More

We absolutely loved spending our day in the Haleakala Crater with amazing tour guide, Johnny. Pony Express was very organized and accommodating. We felt comfortable and at ease for the entire excursion. Johnny was incredibly entertaining and knowledgeable about Haleakala and Maui in general. Out of all of the different activities I have experienced on Maui, this one is one... More

We took the Crater Junction horseback ride. My husband and I have no riding experience, but the horses were so well-trained (yet still free-willed) that we felt very comfortable the whole day. It's a two hour ride down and a two hour ride up -- it was a little long for us, but was still quite an adventure. The guide... More

We had an amazing time enjoying the weather and the scenery! Johnny did a great job of matching up horses for us depending on our abilities--the three of us ranged from novice to experienced rider. Johnny was very knowledgeable and passionate about Haleakala and horses. He informed us of the plant and wild life on Haleakala and about how the... More

What an amazing day. My fiancé and I thought we'd seen and done everything on Maui, but realized that somehow, neither of us had ever hiked into Haleakala Crater, (seen it from the top which is quite breathtaking itself), but have always heard how amazing it is to actually go down into the crater. Luckily we heard about Pony Express... More

We checked in to the Pony Express office and then drove up to the Haleakala crater and met Johnny and our horses. Johnny is great! He is personable, helps you with whatever you need and had great stories. I road "Big Boy" and he was a very nice horse. He needed a little encouragement to walk a little faster every... More

What a terrific time we shared with Johnny and this unbelievable ride two weeks ago. To begin with, he matches the horse to you(which was totally accurate). He makes everyone feel at ease, and explains about how the crater was created, plant life, and so much more. Wonderful weather, nice lunch, fun group, and so much to see and experience.... More
