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

The ranch was perfect! We had a great BBQ lunch followed by horse riding. Horses and guides Destiny and Butch were awesome with the kids. We had great photo opportunities with the entire family and even galloped on the horses. Well worth the trip!

We had a fantastic time at Mendes Ranch. The drive to the ranch was beautiful and we were greeted very kindly and checked in efficiently. They carefully assigned horses based on our experience level and we were off. Every turn on the 1.5 hr ride was more beautiful than the next and our guides Holly and Selena were tons of... More

This ride has stunning views! I was a little skeptical about doing this activity but I am so very glad my 11 year old convinced us to do it! Not only did we get to ride but we had the opportunity to run the horses few times. Fred and Camie did great job pairing up the right horse for the... More

I've lived on Maui for 11 years and today was the first time i've been horse back riding on maui. I tend to go when i'm vacation on the mainland but for some reason never have here. I had a friend visiting who owns several horses back home so thought it would be a good idea… and it was. The... More
