As an experienced rider, I was not willing to pay more than $100 for a nose-to-tail traditional, walk only ride while on vacation. After looking at options for private tours that allowed for changes in gait and after getting a recommendation from a friend who had recently ridden with CJM, a friend and I decided on a 1.5hr private tour...

Overall: Great trail ride. Beautiful scenery and awesome secret beach. The ride was great. Very beautiful views and awesome end at Secret Beach. Our guide, Pete, was great. He really made the ride fun and interesting. He took great care of us. I rode Hawaiian Kash! She was a happy horse! She almost ate my hand though when I gave... More

This is a review regarding a private ride, we didn't take a tour with group so can't comment on those. We booked a private tour with CJM Stables owner, Jim. It was one of our favorite experiences in Hawaii and I highly recommend it! We originally planned on doing the group tour which is three hours. However, we waited until... More

CJM's guides were great! There were two guides to take 12 people on a morning ride. Instead of going nose-to-tail with a guide in front and a guide in back, they opted to split us into two groups of six and ride the trail in opposite directions. That provided each group with a more intimate experience... and we loved it.... More

I don't usually write reviews but this place is fantastic and our absolute favorite activity on Kauai! The wrangler who led our group was SO patient. I was nervous on a horse but he got me through it and I loved the ride. My fifteen year old son had a great time. The scenery is stunning as you ride up... More

We had a great ride, CJM was able to accommodate both me (advanced rider) and my kids (beginners), including booster stirrups to make it much more comfortable for them. Very knowledgable, and a great ride. Would definitely do again on our next trip.I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!

We were on the dry side of the island so the forest sections of the ride were brief. Mostly we rode through wide vistas with mountains, sea, and fields visible at once. The terrain was not flat, plenty of opportunity to exercise one's riding skills of leaning back for downhill and forward for uphill! The high point for me was... More

Family of five, two (somewhat) experienced riders, the rest beginners. Our guide, Pete, fresh from Texas took us on a two hour ride through scenic farm lands, mountain trails and the beach! When we checked in, a "ranch hand" selected our horses based upon our experience and nailed it! The had boots, camera bags, and jackets for us. The two... More

Two hours of slow paced trail ride interspersed with the local history. Fabulous sites and beaches. Great horses. We had an 8 and 9 year old who had never ridden and had a fabulous time. Don't be afraid to go if you have never ridden because they take care of everyone. They furnish helmets and saddle bags so you can... More
