My husband and I went there and we were the only ones on the trail ride which we thought was awesome!! Our guide was very friendly and informative about the area we were riding thru. He stopped and took pictures of us with our cameras. We went through a tree tunnel, up a small mountain and on the beach. Passed many movie sites, too. All in all very relaxing and fun.

My younger sister and I did a horseback riding tour here and really enjoyed it! They split us up into smaller groups with about 6 people. My sister and I are avid horseback riders, so we enjoyed being about to trot a bit. We had John Wayne as our guide-- a bit over the top And annoying-- would have preferred someone else. Horses were well taken care of.

There’s nothing better than riding along the ocean, watching whales, lunch on the beach and a great guide named John Wayne. We have ridden horses at CJM for three years running and every time we go it's still one of the best things to do on the Kauai. This year we brought our 8 & 10 year old granddaughters who had only ridden one other time but were lead with a rope by the guide. John Wayne our guide gave them a quick lesson and off they went and had the time of their life. John Wayne was telling stories and giving our group a little history lesson. This was a spectacular day and a great ride. No other ride can offer ocean views like CJM

I went riding with my family. The scenery was amazing. The bluffs and beaches were beautiful. However, John Wayne tried his best to ruin the experience. He was confusing and similar to a small child hyped on sugar. He yelled confusing commands quickly. He left the group multiple times for extended periods and told them to steer by themselves. He made inappropriate racial comments like "Get excited like a family of black people just moved into your neighborhood" and "You guys sure are quiet for a group of white people." He swore quite a bit and all in all presented the company in a poor, unprofessional light. One woman became afraid getting on her horse, and John Wayne even called her a coward in front of a group of people and humiliated her. However, if you can go on the ride without John Wayne, it is amazing and the scenery and horses were wonderful.

Our family of experienced riders had an excellent experience on our scenic ride along the south east coast of Kauai. Namely Poipu. Our guide was knowledgable and attentive and the ranglers were all very friendly. Since we were on a tour ride, we did not expect too much out of the horse back ride itself but our horses were great and close up coastal and oceanic view was an once in a life time breath taking experience.
