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.

I am 6'2 220lbs and they originally booked my wife and I for sunset tour several weeks before our vacation. I called to re-confirm the day before our vacation and they said I was "too big" for the horses they have at their ranch. I have a BMI less than 30 and would not be classified as obese. I understood... More

Undoubtedly the highlight of our Hawaiian vacation so far. We booked a sunset ride and what a ride. From lava formation to sea level the view was spectacular. Our guide - Rachel - was great. She was patient with us novice riders and was a GREAT historian. The lesson was fantastic. It's provoking me wanting to make a return trip... More

We had a great time. Lovely people and horses. We did the sunset ride and loved the route - some time along the beach and some time up by the vent.

We recently went on the private sunset ride with Rachael at the Makena Stables. It was a great ride and Rachael was a great guide. She took her time and made my wife comfortable on the horse and we got to see some great country side. Horses are well taken care of and were a lot of fun to ride.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Pat on our 2.5hr morning ride. Took our time going up the mountain side where we took plenty picture stops and got to know our horses. The views were absolutely breathtaking, looking down the volcanic rock-strewn path into the gorgeous La Perouse Bay. We ended the tour with a trot along... More

It was an unexpected experience and totally breathtaking. We will be doing this again and again. Mary was sweet, educational and very experienced. We loved the trails and so awesome when the trail ride took us to the beach where Mary took pictures of us. This is a MUST DO and CAN NOT MISS.

We searched for a place that would provide a horseback ride that would take us to the ocean's edge and we certainly found it at Makena Stables. They are a 5+ Star stable! You can see first hand how they care for their horses. It is very clean and the staff is very welcoming. We were greeted by Rachel and... More
