My husband surprised me by booking a horseback ride for our Honeymoon. The ride was great! The views were stunning. Our guide Laura was fantastic and full of knowledge about the location, history and folklore around Haleakala. The horses were well behaved and easy to ride.

We had a terrific ride on the slopes of Kilauea with the Pony Express tours folks....our guide Laura was really sweet and the opportunity to see across the island and ride through both woods and pastures was wonderful.

Our party of 8 took the 1.5 hour Mauka ride and were very pleased with the ride. Being an experienced rider I chose Pony Express for two reasons. I could tell from photos the horses were well fed and taken care of and the 8 of us would be the only ones on the ride. Katheryn was very gracious as... More

the horses were wonderful, and were very well taken care of, well fed and well behaved. The ride was lovely, amazing views, not too much sun, and although it was raining in Makawao, it was not raining for the ride. Our guide was very capable and told great stories.

The ride was gorgeous! Its up a rocky, hilly terrain but the horses know it well so its pretty safe. There were some small issues though. The guide Laura was nice but extremely slow. Our ride left 40 minutes late. She just moved like a snail... but maybe thats Hawaiin culture? Also there are only mobile restrooms (porta-potties)... no where... More

I am an avid horse lover, showed for 20+ years and love to ride. For our 18th anniversary, my hubby and kids ( ages 10 and 14) humored me on a horse ride while on Maui. Great day. The horses were selected to match everyones level of riding. I had Joe, he was very responsive to my leg and voice.... More

We have never been on horses before and wanted to try something different on our honeymoon and this did not disappoint. They matched our experience to the horses and we were both given two very friendly and easy horses to ride. My husbands horse liked to ride up the front and so when she was there he just had to...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the 11:30 ride on Sunday, April 26th. Our instructor and guide Shae asked us about our previous riding experience then matched us to the perfect horse. The horses were gentle and hard working. Although I am not an expert, these horses appeared to be healthy and well cared for. The foggy mist around us... More

My husband, myself and our two teenaged sons like to horseback ride wherever we go. So we've been on a lot of trails in a lot of places. This one ranks up there, especially for scenery. The narrow trail through the eucalyptus forest was beautiful and part of the island you wouldn't normally see. Pick a leaf and rub it... More

As I hadn't been in a horse in a very long time I was rather nervous. After spending 5minutes with the instructor and my horse for the tour, my nerves were gone and I was taking in the amazing scenery. Unfortunately there was a little rain around, however this was not to worry as rain jackets were provided. Helmets are... More
