Spent the morning on a ranch ride with Jod. I've been on a fair number of trail rides, but Jod spent over an hour with me in the arena teaching me the basics of horsemanship. We then took a trail ride around the ranch through the gorgeous fields, admiring both coasts of Maui. Beautiful! I get the feeling that Jod... More

I was really surprised to find a hands-on experience being offered and was so excited! I wanted a horse ride in Maui that was more hands-on and intimate, not where one horse just follows the other, so I chose the Ranch ride.

Our family went on the Waikapu Plantation Ride w/lunch. Definitely the best cared for horses, best tack, and best instruction we've ever seen on a trail ride. Beautiful views, really nice and knowledgeable guide, and a great catered lunch. Highly recommend this place.

My 11-year-old son had his first horseback lesson with Yod at Makani Olu Ranch. Yod was patient and the horse was great - by the end of the hour, my son had learned a lot. This is a worthwhile activity, especially when you are looking for something other than a beach activity.

My dad and I had a fantastic time on our ride! Our horses (sundance and clyde) were adorable and quite well suited to us and our riding level. Yod was full of interesting facts and information and it really showed just how much he loves what he does :) We saw lots of beautiful views, and a ton of different... More

A great ride with capable, responsible, knowledgeable Yod at the helm. Being in the horse industry myself, it was great to go and ride and have a sense of respect for the quality of the service. Sound, well behaved horses with well fitted equipment. Frequently you do not get these important BASICS when you "rent" horses. if you are looking... More

Lovely ride up in the hills, plenty of Longhorn cattle to see, well cared for horses and nice people. This is the best kept grounds and horses that I have ever seen for a rental.
