We had a great time horseback riding. The people at Mendes Ranch are just awesome. You get the appropriate amount of teasing based on your skill level! Beautiful views. You go up into the mountains and then down near the ocean. They also have a couple spots where you can run your horse. The only other tour I had taken before had no running and that's no fun. Mendes Ranch gives you a chance to trot and run the horse if you want...and most people want to! I scheduled the event through adventuremaui.com (which I totally recommend) and the lunch was included with the package. The BBQ lunch was great!

It was awesome!
7 year old (first time, not a good listener)
11 year old (has riden before and somewhat confident)
16 year old (hard to please, 2nd time rider)
my husband and I were 4 time riders from different ranches.
The guide richard held on to my 7 yr old 1/2 way through the trip until she felt comfortable.
11 year old loved it. 16 year old loved it and was happy. Great family activity for different age groups. Views spectacular. They give you slow horses if you are a beginner.
The B-B-Q was worth it, very tasty and your hungry after. We tipped our guides, they are worth it.

If you like horse back riding, Mendes Ranch is the place to go. The people are very friendly and helpful if you aren't someone that rides a lot. The views are breathtaking and start from the time you arrive at the ranch until the time you leave. You won't be disappointed on the ride and you will even get to run a couple times along the way. We are going back next year to do it all over again :)
