Participated in a scenic morning ride at Mendes Ranch during our recent visit to Maui. The ride was well organized, the guides were helpful and informative and we really enjoyed the scenery. The horses all had funny personalities...we had Big Mac, Big Red and Blondie!...More

I researched all the horseback riding places in Maui. It looked like most of the trails just take you through fields. I picked Mendes Ranch because it had ocean views – and it was actually the least expensive! Before we got there, I didn’t book...More

We really enjoyed our afternoon trail ride. The ranch is beautiful and the horses are well trained (mine was Smoke). I appreciated having our pictures taken, a chance to lope and the free beverages before/after the ride. The only negative feedback I'd give is, maybe...More
