My husband & I came to Mendes Ranch to horseback ride 15 years ago on our honeymoon & this week we came back with our two kids. They are very inexperienced riders but our guides, Destiny & Jocelyn, took such great care of them & made them feel safe & confident. The views on the trail are amazing. You see... More

Hands down best trail ride I've ever experienced. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable -- and very patient taking photos for everyone and retrieving dropped cellphones. The horses were well cared for and safe for every level to ride. The highlight for us was that the guides will let you gallop twice if you wish to. The 11 year old... More

This was just a beautiful day! Check in was breeze and the ranch is absolutely breathtaking! We had beginner to experienced riders in our group of seven and they were very well accommodated with horses for all levels. It's hot! Wear sunscreen, bring your water bottle and your camera/phone(they will stop along the way and take pictures with your camera... More

The trail is fantastic with amazing views of the coast. The guides are very friendly and you could tell the clearly loved their horses. Would highly recommend.

The Mendes Ranch is in a spectacular location on the NW Maui coast. The ride started at the top (not sure the elevation but would guess ~2500 feet) and we travelled down the trails toward the coast. The views were amazing. The horses were great (not the typical "brain dead" horses you often find on trail rides). Ask for "Blondie"... More

This was a nice experience. We had people in our group that had never been on a horse to experienced riders. The staff were great for all levels. Only thing I would change would be more opportunities to stop and take pictures. We stopped twice for pictures but the scenery is beautiful and I wish I could have taken more... More

My wife & I had an awesome time (In The Rain), riding horses up & down the mountainside of Maui. Beautiful scenery, and great trails. You really need to go check this out.

This hour and a half trail ride was a blast! We had so much fun! You get to ride along cliffs above the ocean and even get to run your horses at a couple spots. Our guides were awesome and talked to us the whole time. Definitely recommend going with Mendes Ranch!!!
