How Old Does a Child Have to be to Horseback Ride?

We are planning a trip to Maui with our 4 year old. We live on a ranch in Montana and our son is a good rider. Is there any problem bringing a 4 year old on one of your horseback riding tours?


There are quite a number of horseback riding companies that we have on Maui and they all have ages below which they will not permit on their rides. Usually this has to do with insurance considerations. It sounds like your "little wrangler" could handle it but I'm afraid we can't. We've checked with all the horseback riding companies and the lowest age we found (from only one of them - the others required an older age) was 6 years old. Sorry!
