Found the stable on the internet and we booked it. Am I glad we did this ride, we did the 5 hr ride to the hidden... More

Loved this 5 hour ride. Waipio ridge is beautiful and the overlook has a spectacular view of hiilawe falls and the black sand beach as well as the valley. The 5 hour ride starts with the 2.5 hour ride, after the ridge, the 5 hour ride continues through the woods to a waterfall. The extra time on the trail is... More

We love horseback riding, so 5h ride with great vistas and swim in waterfall was no-brainer Unfortunately our first reservation that we made on yelp didn't go through - I'd highly recommend to call and make reservation directly (as probably for all reservations on the island). We had flexible plans so was no big deal for us - we just... More

My daughter and I enjoyed all aspects of the ride: the guides, horses, scenery, path through the eucalyptus trees and break when we tried some macadamia nuts from the trees. Thank you!!

We did the 5 1/2 hour tour & it was amazing! Well trained horses, excellent guides, breathtaking views, peaceful ride through the forest, beautiful private waterfall with swimming hole (note: very cold water!). I was particularly impressed with our lead guide Jaimie. He gave really insightful & interesting history on the valley and on the island itself. He was very... More

Had a great 5 hour ride with Kevin as our knowledgeable local guide. Horses were very gentle and well behaved and the sights from high above the valley and waterfalls were awesome. My wife, son and daughter all enjoyed their swim under the waterfall. Water temp was "refreshing" but the memory is priceless.

We took our family on this horseback ride and had a great time, especially the kids. We chose the 5-hour ride with the waterfall swim. It was foggy and a bit rainy, but that added to the ambiance and it didn't stop the kids and my husband from swimming. The guides were knowledgeable and the horses were friendly and easy... More

This place sucked, unorganized, late, and then worst of all they have a weight limit on their horses? Never was told this and spent half my day driving out to them, make sure to ask every question when thinking about taking the trip. Had no alternative horse or plan at this place.
