Horseback riding on the beach in Maui is definitely a 'once in a lifetime' experience! We also were thrilled for the opportunity to ride up a mountain and enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean from horseback. Whale watching was pretty cool from up there! Our guide Sonya (sp?) was great, we learned a lot from her and enjoyed getting... More

We did the sunset ride and it was gorgeous. Part of the ride was on the beach and the rest was heading up a hill to watch the sun set. It was great. I recommend Makena stables as they provide great service, local history, an have well cared for horses.

My husband and I had an absolutely spectacular sunset ride with Rachel. I can only second what others have said about the obviously well cared for horses and committed and caring staff. They clearly put some thought into which horses to assign. We had laughs and enjoyed learning history along the way, as well as periods of absolute zen. Rachel... More

It was my first time riding a horse, and now I want to own a horse! I did a morning tour and couldn't be happier. My horse,tacker, was well-trained and easy to ride. The guide(I'm sorry I forgot her name, a super friendly lady from Wisconsin) was sweet and informative. We went through a beautiful private property and I felt... More

My family had never been to Maui and we decided to invest in the private sunset ride for the three of us. We were met by Rebecca who had a calming voice and demeanor and made sure my daughter who has never ridden had the right horse for her. The ride consisted of 3 hours of walking with no runs... More

We did the sunset ride at Makena Stables, and the owner Pat took us on our trail ride. We went down to the beach and then all the way up to the top of a lava vent. The scenery was incredible. When I called to book the ride, they were very careful to ask everyone's experience level to make sure... More

New guide, Heidi, is sweet caring and informative. FUNFUN. The sunset ride was beautiful as we enjoyed more time along the beach than before. Horses are very well trained and gentile. We'll be back.

This excursion was wonderful! I asked for a gentle horse since I'm not an experienced rider and my little quarter horse was perfect. The ride up the trail was beautiful but the ride along the beach was beyond my expectations! Heidi our guide took great care of us and was very safety conscious. The stable is about 45 minutes to...

Loved our guide Rachel. And the owner. Real horse people. Well rounded experience for riders. Horses are cared for real well too. Morning trail ride through a lava field and forest down to turquoise blue Perouse Bay was sweet. Glad we picked this outfit. Recommend.
