One of the best ways to see Hawaii is on horseback; almost all the islands offer riding opportunities for just about every age and level of experience. You can ride into Maui's Haleakala Crater, along Kauai's Mahaulepu Beach, through Oahu's remote windward valleys on Kualoa Ranch, or you can gallop across the wide-open spaces of the Big Island's Parker Ranch, one of the largest privately owned ranches in the United States. Be sure to bring a pair of jeans and closed-toed shoes to wear on your ride.
The island of Maui offers some of Hawaii’s most memorable horseback riding adventures. First-time riders and skilled equestrians alike can choose from a number of trail rides that include visits to the island’s most famous locations. Trail rides are available throughout Maui—from Kapalua in West Maui and Makena in South Maui all the way to Hana—and offer a diverse array of experiences: through a tropical rainforest, along cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, into Haleakala Crater, up into Hana’s scenic highlands, onto the Upcountry ranchlands and beyond. A few horseback rides even include stops for swimming and picnicking.
