Maui Horseback Riding Review

(1 customer review)


While the majority of travelers probably don’t think of horseback riding when they think of adventures in the Aloha State, it’s actually one of the best land activities on Maui and a great way to experience the stunning panoramic views of the island. Family-owned and operated, Mendes Ranch offers an intimate look into the history and terrain of some of Maui’s most remote areas. With morning and afternoon trail rides, guests will be treated to a horseback ride to the edge of Waihee Valley and along Maui’s coastline. Perfect for families, couples, groups of friends and solo adventurers, and no experience necessary!

    There’s no better place on Earth than Maui to go horseback riding! It was so cool. Part of the fun is having great views and nature around, and the animals were so sweet. We enjoyed every minute. Thank you! Can’t wait to come next year hopefully.
