Lanai is a beautiful island, and the best way to explore it is on horseback. We were fortunate to have a private trail ride with Sean--he's got a natural feel for horses and is extremely experienced and knowledgable about the terrain and the people and animals who live there. This is probably the best trail ride I've ever done (and... More

Would I do it again? A resounding yes. Beautiful and friendly. No uptight attitude. Every service detail, has been attended to. A must on your next trip to the Hawaiian islands.

No poser cowboys at these stables ! Just minutes from the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, a stay in Lanai would be incomplete without a horseback excursion from Hawaii Western Adventures. Polite and Professional they took care of our group and were extremely accommodating and thoughtful. Be prepared for Red Dust and a jacket for higher elevations.

We stayed at Manele Bay and went up the Koele to have lunch and let our little ones (ages 4 and 2 1/2) ride horses. We were worried they'd be too little, but thought we'd try anyway. Molly and the others at the Stables were so nice and accommodating! The staff there are not surfers posing as cowboys - they... More

We went to the Stables at Koele to go UTV riding. What a day. Molly was our guide and really showed us all the wonders of Lanai. We originally signed to do the 1.5 hr ride but quickly changed it to the 3 hour tour.. This was amazing. The trails took you from the lower meadows up to the mountain... More

My wife and I took a morning horseback with Cody, a real life cowboy, as our guide and it was awesome! We were the only ones that signed up for this time, so it was just us and our guide. The scenery was beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable and informative, not to mention funny. We would definitely do... More

My husband and I travel extensively and try to ride in different locations. He surprised me with a 90 minute ride this morning at Koele. Everyone that we interacted with at the stables were friendly and knowledgeable. Our "official" guide was Molly and she was fantastic. Her loyal sidekick Gunner, the bird dog, also accompanied us and made things even... More

Molly took my wife and I on a two hour ride - excellent guide, great/fresh horses, fun trails, moved out a lot, great views and great conversation throughout. My wife's the passionate rider, I just go along to enjoy everything. I highly recommend Stables at Koele and Molly - we had a lot in common with her and thoroughly enjoyed... More

First of all, I am totally befuddled by anyone who claims thatntherenis nothing to do in Lanai! Are they crazy ? We recently spent two weeks there and had a blast. Diving, hiking, golf, trap shooting.....and perhaps our highlight....riding horses in the "up country" at the Koele stables. Our guide Cody was super informative, knowledgeable, and personable. He and his... More
