Nice location. Beautiful scenery. While the horses were fine, the trail guide seemed a bit impatient and put out by us. The guide was even rude at times. They need to work on customer service to make the time more enjoyable.

If you have 2 hours, this is the best place to visit and you won't regret! For the value you spend, you can get out of the crowd and ride the horse to the top of the mountain. You can see much much better views here. And lots of fun just by riding the horse.

What a cool experience! Gina, our tour guide was awesome and hilarious. You can feel that they love the horses and there was a positive energy on the ranch. The trail was fun and relaxing. I loved my horse Kona and my husband really bonded with his horse Lady Gaga! We are here on an incentive trip with 600 people.... More

Great ride & the guide was super nice! Booked sunset ride but with weather issues ended up on morning excursion instead... Beautiful views & perfect weather. Would definitely recommend. The stables were nice & horses very well taken care of plus they named the horses celebrity names based on their personality. It was cute.

Ironwood Ranch is a little hidden gem up in the hills above Napili. Gina and her crew were absolutely fabulous horsewomen. We were able to get in the same day as we called because of a cancellation - perfect timing. It was such a wonderful clear day that the views were outstanding! We own horses so we were very happy...

To do something completely different in Hawaii we went on a horseback ride. Ironwood Ranch is high up the mountain to start and the ride takes you even higher for great views. The horses were calm and easy to direct although they often tested us by trying to stop to eat. The guide made sure we kept them in line... More

I'd been wanting to go horse riding for so long, I was nagging my boyfriend about it constantly and he'd promised we go while we were in Hawaii. So I was stoked. Ironwood had quiet horses, great for any level of experience. There are a couple that don't really get along, but the guides know not to put them too... More

I've always wanted to go horseback riding so why not do it for the first time in Maui?! We booked this activity through our concierge service. It was only $85 per person, so price was definitely more affordable than most tourist activities. It was a 15 minute drive from our condo in Ka'anapali. The ranch is in a beautiful, hidden... More

It's was about a 1 hour trip through the hills and woods of West Maui. Although it said 1.5 on their brochure. Even though it's 1 hour, you still get to see quite a few amazing sites. The guides are nice and friendly as well as the horses. It's quite a drive up the hill to get to the Ironwood... More

This was such a special trip! I've only been on a horse a few times in my life, but this place was great. We got to meet the horses first and they all had names.Then on our "tour", we rode through the pineapple fields and down into a forest, through a stream, etc. After returning, we sat at the ranch...
