Maui Horseback Riding Tours

Horseback Riding on Maui is a pretty popular activity, particularly when you realize that there are about a half dozen riding stables on an island that is only forty-eight miles long. That is excellent news for someone who wants to choose a particular location, a particular riding level or a specific type of ride.
  • Do you have a child 6 years of age who wants to ride;
  • are you pushing 300 lbs but would still enjoy a trail ride;
  • would you like to ride at sunset;
  • are you looking for an advanced pace horseback ride;
  • does it sound fun to ride on a cattle drive for a morning;
  • would you enjoy a private ride on one of Maui's beautiful ranches.
If you answered 'yes' to any of these question, Maui is the place you want to do your horseback riding. One additional point is that most of the horseback riding tours we offer are available at discounted pricing.

What locations on Maui have horseback riding?

  • How about a ride through the eucalyptus forests of upcountry Maui
  • View Molokai and the island of Lanai from a ranch on Maui overlooking the channels between either and Maui's northwest coastline.
  • Ride on a working cattle ranch 2000' above the ocean with views of Kahului and Mount Haleakala.
  • Enjoy some private horseback instruction in the foothills of the West Maui Mountains on a ranch overlooking the central valley.
  • See whales breaching in the distance from a ride overlooking the Lahaina Roadstead.

Some considerations for your Maui horseback adventure:


  • Maui Horseback riding tours all have restrictions about children but the ages allowed will vary from usually a minimum of age 6 to age 12. Let us know if you have little guys wanting to ride horseback; we'll try to accommodate them.
  • Horseback rides range from a couple of hours to longer. Let us know how much time you'd like to spend on this activity and we'll help you plan accordingly.

This video segment is going to be about Horseback Riding on the island of Maui.

Horseback riding is very popular. Not just here, throughout the entire state. All the islands have Horseback Riding that they offer, maybe a little bit more popular to some degree in Maui.

I think we've got about eight stable that is all around the island, all the different terrain that are available to you. we've got them up on the West Side, Kapalua, Lahaina, we've got Kahakuloa area and above Wailuku up on those spots, Piiholo is up in Olinda, which is above Makawao up in the forest region about 3000-foot elevation. Also up country in the Kula area has beautiful views. We've got Horseback Riding down on the coast in Makana, then a little bit further down in Kanaio, kind of sweeping towards the capitol area. We have trips that go to the coast from the road up above. You're going down maybe 1500 feet or so, in elevation down to the ocean.

We have a lot of different tours that are available to you, a lot of different times. Many of them are just two hours in duration. Others are four hours or even six hours. We have them in the morning, we even have them in the afternoon, and we have them at sunset time which of course is very beautiful. We have some that will include lunches and others are just out for the ride.

There is just a tremendous amount that you can do with regard to the Horseback Riding. As far as ages, a lot of people want to bring children. We actually have some ranches that would take youngsters as low as 4 and 5 years old, most are over that. There are some restrictions regarding weight, usually when you get into the above 250lbs, getting you to be a little bit too much job for the horse. Each separate Ranch has its own level that it will take in terms of how much weight.

Aside from the pure joy of riding horses and seeing sceneries. We also have riding schools, where they teach you how to ride. We've got some horsemanship courses which are kind of geared toward children but don't necessarily have to be just for children. These are really nice in the sense that they really teach you a lot. Just about horsemanship in general and building confidence with horses, learning about them, about their anatomy, learning how to saddle a horse, how to bridle a horse, about all the different gates that a horse has.

These are really a little bit more in depth in comprehension of what can be taught with regard to horseback riding and horses. We've got so many opportunities, there are so much different things regarding horseback riding and it's a good thing because we've got a lot of people that want to go out and do these horseback rides.

Just let us know what you're interested in and we'll be more than glad to help you with organising any of these trips throughout the island of Maui.
