I was really surprised to find a hands-on experience being offered and was so excited! I wanted a horse ride in Maui that was more hands-on and intimate, not where one horse just follows the other, so I chose the Ranch ride.

Our family went on the Waikapu Plantation Ride w/lunch. Definitely the best cared for horses, best tack, and best instruction we've ever seen on a trail ride. Beautiful views, really nice and knowledgeable guide, and a great catered lunch. Highly recommend this place.

My 11-year-old son had his first horseback lesson with Yod at Makani Olu Ranch. Yod was patient and the horse was great - by the end of the hour, my son had learned a lot. This is a worthwhile activity, especially when you are looking for something other than a beach activity.

A great ride with capable, responsible, knowledgeable Yod at the helm. Being in the horse industry myself, it was great to go and ride and have a sense of respect for the quality of the service. Sound, well behaved horses with well fitted equipment. Frequently you do not get these important BASICS when you "rent" horses. if you are looking... More

Lovely ride up in the hills, plenty of Longhorn cattle to see, well cared for horses and nice people. This is the best kept grounds and horses that I have ever seen for a rental.
