I am a frustrated equestrienne...I do not currently own a horse but try to find opportunities to experience countries from the back of a horse in any of my travels...this was a lovely ride with my daughters. Great views, primo guide and a horse that responded to commands without showing the "barn sour" tendencies of a lot of rental stable... More

We have done this ride the past two years and love it! We are not experienced riders and are always happy with the horse match up process. Jim is such a nice guy! Beautiful views and a top notch experience. worth every cent.

My teenaged daughter (experienced rider) and I (not so much...) did the 2 hour tour at CJM Stables near Poipu. It was a truly exceptional ride. The horses were very well cared for, the property was lovely, and the tour was not only educational but also covered some spectacularly beautiful vistas that are not easily accessible any other way.

We had a terrific time with Russ last week. The horses were beautiful and we always felt safe. The property is absolutely gorgeous, going from the seashore to getting a bird's eye view from above the shore. The only thing that marred what would have been a 5 star event was that beginning riders (those who had never ridden) probably... More

Was a little concerned when we first arrived and the ranch hands were a bit stand-offish- perhaps concerned about safety. But soon they had us on our horses and on our way! Be sure to be honest about your riding experience. I am a novice , one of the girls was quite experienced- they will give you a horse based... More

CMJ Stables has been in operation since 1985 and they are the fantastic! The stable is easy to access from any of the resorts in Poipu. We had the pleasure of doing a two hour private ride with Jim and he easily selected the right horse for my friend and me as we had different riding experience levels. This is... More

We went with Jim or CJM Stables on a 2 hour private ride. It was amazing! Truly one of the highlights of our trip! There were 2 of us and we are experienced riders therefore requested the private ride. Once Jim learned this, he changed us to different horses, and asked us to brush, saddle and unsaddle them ourselves which... More

We took the 2 hour trail ride at CJM country stables this morning. I have been on a number of guided trail rides over the years, and this one is definitely the best. The views are unbeatable!! The horses are very well-cared for,perfectly behaved, and very sure-footed. The staff gave very specific instructions on how to handle them. I would... More

Really enjoyed the 2 hour ride in the Poipu area. Everyone was very friendly and the horses were very well trained for beginning riders. Don't expect to be galloping down the beach, but it was a beautiful view and a great experience.

Being guests recently on-board cruise ship Pride of America we signed up via NCL for this 1.5 hours adventure in the most beautiful surroundings. Weather perfect, the manager/owner a gentleman, very entertaining and informative. The ride itself, 7 persons incl. 1 child went through the ride without problems despite most of us had not been on a horse for many... More
