Can 5 year olds go horseback riding?

Hawaii's Largest Selection of Activities

Can 5 year olds go horseback riding? The following question was answered by Kai.


I have a 5 year old who rides his own horse in Texas. Would he be permitted to ride with any horseback riding company in either Maui or the Big Island?


The only company that offers horseback rides for a 5 year old child on the islands of Maui and The Big Island is at The Piiholo Ranch located in the town of Makawao on the island of Maui. The Piiholo Ranch is a beautiful area centered upcountry along the majestic slopes of Maui's famous mountain/volcano Haleakala. They offer either a 30 minute or a 1 hour "Riding Lessons" activity for children ages 3 and up with well trained and groomed horses fitted with Western saddles. This activity focuses on building a natural relationship between the rider and the horse based on the horses' natural instincts and mentality. Regardless of previous riding experience, children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian.
