Today my 2 daughters and I went horseback riding at this magical ranch. We were at three different levels of riding (one with no experience ) and they picked suitable horses for each of us. Gina was our guide and she was constantly checking in with us and giving us tips how to manage the horses through the beautiful trail on the ironwood ranch. Being in the west Maui mountains, you soon come to a 180 degree view of the islands of Maui, lanai, and Molokai. It is so wide that you can actually see what looks like the curving of the earth's surface, like you are in a giant fishbowl. Then you are taken into the rainforest so about 80% of the ride is in the shade and you pass by wild coffee trees, mango trees, guava, cinnamon, mulberry and even wild pineapple. It is so lush, like the setting for the Avatar movie! Also, old stone walls from Hawaiian ancestral tribes, at least 300 years old, can be viewed close to the trail. I have been to Hawaii several times but today I felt like I actually went back in time. NOT TO BE MISSED!
