Makena Stables

One of the older stables we have on the island of Maui that offers horseback rides is the Makena Stables. Pat and Helaine Borge established the stables in 1983. This small and personalized company takes intimate groups of six or less along the beautiful lower outreaches of the Ulupalakua Ranch. Their routes offer spectacular views of La Perouse Bay and the Ahihi Kinau Reserve, and of the surrounding islands. This is an adventurous ride, and participants should be in generally good health. This side of the island is generally very sunny and rarely rains. The trail horses at the ranch are as gentle as their owners, and if you're looking to go riding in some wide open spaces past the development of Kihei and Wailea, look no further then Makena Stables!
