This experience was for our 7 year old daughter who loves horses. Not a whole lot different from your typical trail horse ride, but the views were pretty impressive. The staff was very nice and pointed out interesting points and facts about the island. They have a large variety of fruit trees on the ranch that we checked out after... More

We were teamed up with Josea. She was awesome. She kept us informed of the trail ahead as well as the surrounding scenery. She had a... More

The horses were well behaved and well taken care of. The guide was quite good although her spiel sounded a bit canned from time to time. The trails were largely shaded and the views were breathtaking.

Ironwood ranch is great place for beginners to have a horseback riding experience. The guides/trainers were great and helpful. The horses are pretty well trained and packed with personalities. This is my second time on a horse and I felt comfortable. I was a little nervous at first but if you follow all directions then it was smooth sailing from... More

We closed our last day in Maui with a trail ride with Josie at Ironwood Ranch. What a great experience. All of the staff were awesome and the horses, in particular David Beckham, made everything so fun and comfortable for all experience levels. Great way to see Maui.

We had a blast riding horses through so many streams and forests and views of the ocean. Our tour guide Gina was a riot and very knowledgeable about horses and the area we rode in. I fell in love with my horse Shania Twain! So beautiful ans sweet she loved to eat the grass by the trail. We will definitely... More

It was an awesome experience from beginning to end. The horses were beautiful, well trained, and had such great personalities. Our guide, Gina, was hilarious and great leader. It was my first time horseback riding and I was pretty nervous. But with Gina's sharp humor and guidance, I felt comfortable pretty quickly. (It also helped to just start going. I... More

This was great place to go while on Maui. The Horses were really friendly and full of personality. It had rained the night before so unfortunately the ride was only an hour instead of an hour and a half but it was still super enjoyable.

We had a marvelous time on this ride. I would strongly recommend it to anyone. The team was courteous and helpful. The ride was varied with some in the forest and some on the hill overlooking the ocean and nearby islands to the west and south.
