I would like to say that i think that if your complaining about the bumpy roads and having to hold onto the reins that is just stupid i had the best time there and i only rated terrible so i could write to all you people and would actually have people pay attention.

After an almost interminable drive up third-world dirt roads, the main office appears, and you enter the world of a former pineapple plantation and a large stable of well-cared for horses. The trail ride covers some steep climbs and descents which might prove daunting to a first-time or physically-limited rider. The horses are well-trained and responsive, and what begins as... More

Four of us recently booked a ride, we had hoped to take the 2 hour ride, but it was not available so we opted for the one and half hour trip. Three of us had no experience and I had owned horses in the past. The ranch matched horses to riders perfectly and we had a lovely relaxed ride with... More

I love riding so I dragged my husband away from the beach while we were in Maui in order to do a morning ride at Ironwood Ranch. If you're staying in the Kaanapali Beach area you have a few options for horseback riding open to you, and I somewhat regret choosing Ironwood Ranch. Don't get me wrong, the horses were... More

I rode at Ironwood on 11/7 with two friends. When we arrived, we met an employee from DC (I don't remember her name) and Gina. They were both rather grouchy and exasperated from the week and clients they'd had to work with. During the short walk from the office to the stable area with Gina, she even critiqued the physical...

This was such an enjoyable trip for myself and my family (5 total). Most of us had never been on a horse and our guide Ryan helped us to relax and enjoy our time. To start the ride we went down a hill with a bend to test out our skills which we all survived. The weather was perfect and... More

So I've never been on a horse...unless you count a pony for a picture when I was 3! We chose Ironwood Ranch because of their location, experience of the horses and trail guides, and their willingness to work with me on my first ride. I was riding with my husband and 18 year old daughter...both had rode before. We took... More

We did a really great 9am, 1.5 hour ride, with Angel. She was our personal guide for our family of four and we all had a great time. The horses were all healthy and seemed quite happy. We enjoyed our time at IW Ranch!
