These stables were established in 1983 and have since built its reputation as "the best riding stable in Hawai'i." Horses and riders are individually matched, in consideration of the animal's comfort as for the rider's. Several different rides are offered, ranging from a two-hour beginner ride to the more challenging three-hour rides. There are also different tours given throughout the day, and private tours are available as well. All rides take place on Ulupalakua Ranch, which overlooks La Perouse Bay and neighboring islands. Group reservations are also available.
This is small operation but that is what makes it special. The four people that work there are horse lovers first and business people second. The owner's moto - "I work hard so my horses can have a better life". Isn't that great? The only disadvantages I found was that there is no office person there so I suggest when calling leave a message and when either the owner or the wrangler come in on break they will return your call. Oh the other great thing is not only are there beautiful horses there but also goats, chickens, and a really comical dog!
We are horse owners from CT, and took this ride last summer. Nice, healthy horses and beautiful ride. Christine, our guide, was wonderful; not only took us through beautiful scenery, she also gave us lots of history of the area along the way. We are going back this spring for another ride!
Being horse owners from Florida, we've run into a lot of riding stables where the people really don't know what they're doing. It's the exact opposite with Makena Stables. The owners pick the perfect horse for you and then take you on the most amazing ride way up above the ocean! The views are superb and the horses are great. I highly recommend Makena Stables to all horse lovers!
