I would definitely do this again! My only complaint is that the ride was too short. Thank you for the canter rides!!! So much fun! I really miss riding. The views and the staff were incredible!



Joan Baldwin
Great place to ride.

I thought this ranch and staff were A+ all around. My wife and I being somewhat novice to horseback riding, but the staff made us feel comfortable. We had some people in our party who were very skilled and the staff were able to accommodate there desires as well. The lunch was excellent and again hats off to Destiny who was excellent in her directions and delivery. A great morning ride!!!

One of the BEST experiences we had while in Maui. The Mendes Ranch property is breathtaking. My husband and I had our two sons with us and even the 7 year old was able to handle it with the great guides. So much to do and see on this beautiful island, but this is an acitivity you wont want to miss. Oh, and spring for the Paniolo BBQ--so worth it!

Dave Ostrinsky
An amazing staff, extremely nice and helpful. The ride was breathtaking! The horses were well cared for. The ride time was alright of course I would say it wasn't long enough that's because it was so nice you didn't want it to end. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting Maui.

We went on the trail ride in May after a torrential downpour caused us to delay the tour by two days. My 79 yo father, my sister and young daughter went on the morning ride. It was incredible. They pair you with the horse that suits you abilities. The experience was amazing from the horse riding fun to riding along the beautiful hillside with incredible views of the Pacific. We even got to canter/gallop for those that were up for it! Even my daughter had a lovely pony named Hoku (Star) that charged up the hill. She loved it! I would recommend it to anyone that is a horse aficionado and wants a lovely experience. Bring carrots / apples to feed the horses afterwards as they sure deserve it! The staff were attentive and conversational as well. I will do it again next time I'm in Maui.

Easy booking through Tom Barefoot's Tours, check-in was super easy, and the ride
was wonderful. Even though it sprinkled/rained on and off during the ride, the
guide Butch was very easygoing and informative.    feel like they pair
the rider and the horses very well, and I loved my horse!
