Horseback PM Ride - Mendes Ranch and Trail Rides

Choose this afternoon horseback ride at the Mendes Ranch and feel like a "paniolo" (cowboy) on Maui! Guests will mount up on western saddles at the corral and ride with a guide down the edge of Waihee Valley to the coastline and back up. Considered one of the backsides of the island this area does not boast white sandy beaches and terraced landscapes instead guests escape into undeveloped raw beauty. Ride through open lands and down the edge of the valley to marvel at the expansive, magnificent waters of the Pacific Ocean. Before leaving this vantage and heading back up to the corral your guide can take photographs of you with the majestic seascape in the background. Since 1886 the Medes family has cared for and maintained this land. The original homestead has grown into an amazing ranch which remains family owned and operated. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and beverage to enjoy the picnic spot after the morning tours or they can come early and eat before the afternoon tour. With scenic views and a pace that meets your skills this is a great horseback ride on the rustic side of Maui.

This is an amazing place. They cater to every skill level and the guide was friendly and took pictures at multiple spots on the ride. They picked fruit from the forest and gave it to us on the ride while explaining about the ranch. They made this our favorite event on vacation on Maui and will definitely go to them again next trip there!
This was one of Hawaii's best kept secrets! We had a great time. The guides were very attentive and knowledgeable and made sure everyone had fun.
The agent that booked my reservations was awesome! Good experience with your company & we loved the tour with Mendes ranch!
Excellent. Guides were very knowledgable and professional. Scenery was breathtaking.
The views were spectacular!! The guides were awesome! The couple "runs" were the best! Thanks for a great ride.
Our guides were awesome! We had so much fun and will be back next time!!
Beautiful ride with beautiful - well taken care of - horses.
Had a great time! There were two stops where the guide took a ton of pictures with you and the people you came with. You're also able to bring your phone with you to take pictures along the way. Most of it is in the open so wear lots of sunblock as I burned!

Thanks so much
Best place! Everyone was so friendly. The horses are well taken care of. Trail along the cliff is breathtaking. We had the BBQ lunch before we rode. It was delicious! Everything about this ranch was worth it.
AMAZING experience!!! Kids absolutely loved it! Well mannered & gentle horses and excellent guides!
Kemo and Chad were fabulous guides. They accommodated all rider levels - even those in our group who professed more skill than they exhibited. A beautiful ride and a top experience from start to finish. TIP- go sit in the gazebo - even for just a few minutes - at the end of your tour. Heaven!
This was our second time at Mendes Ranch and it was just as good as the first time. We really enjoyed the trail, the horses and especially the cowboys/trail guides. I would highly recommend Mendes Ranch for a fun family ride.
Great fun, the start was a little ruff, employees were very unhappy about something. The saddling up process took a long time but other than that we had a blast. We will do it again I'm sure
