Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our ride. You get great ocean views during the ride and also have a chance to run your horse a couple of times. Our guide took several photos of us with our own camera. She also found different types of fruit growing on the ranch and let us try it. It was a little... More

We went with our children and it was my young son's first time riding a horse. The site was very patient with him and made him exited about riding. He had a great time. The BBQ lunch was limited, but very tasty. The views were incredible. A bit difficult to take pictures on a moving horse, but the staff takes... More

Great service from initial conversation to departure. Beautiful ride on well behaved yet lively horses. The opportunity to run the horses was unique. They were very careful and spent lots of time matching up horses and riders. If you want to ride in Maui- whether you are a beginner or experienced rider, this is a great place to do it.

Selena and Freddy are so much fun! Had a great time and worked with us as beginner riders. My wife and I loved the view and wish it would last forever!

My husband and I have not rode a horse since we were kids. We wanted to try a different activity in Maui and so glad we did. We had a wonderful experience! Everyone at the ranch was friendly and suited you with a horse to your level of riding. From beginners to advanced you will be fine. The scenic ride... More

My 10 year old, 3 teens, my husband and I went on the trail ride guided by Butch. Butch was awesome, very outgoing guy! He gave us some information about the horses, plants, history of the ranch without making it boring! He took many pictures of our group! Couldn't have asked for a better guide! The views on the trail... More

My teenage daughters and I had a wonderful visit at the ranch. The staff (who refer to each other as family) accommodated all of our riding abilities. Our guide was a real deal Hawaiian cowgirl, Destiny. The ride was a lot of fun and the views breathtaking. They also picked us fruit from their trees for the ride around West... More

We took the 90 minute tour. I rode a horse named blondie and my wife rode the horse named shadow. Both fantastic horses! One of our guides name was destiny (she was super awesome!) she always checked on us and gave us plenty of photo opportunities. You take a trail around the ranch along a mountain side and through a... More
