We're the "Best Place to Find Yourself on Horseback" according to Hawaii Magazine's 2008 "Best of Hawaii" - and they should know! Ride our beautiful horses through lush, exotic valleys, ironwood forests, and pineapple fields, while enjoying spectacular panoramic views of the outer islands! Nestled in the midst of unspoiled mountains, rain forests and farmland, Ironwood Ranch sits on acres of private land inaccessible to most, but ready and waiting for you to explore!

This was a really fun activity! My husband and I were escorted through the jungle, and up through the hills, on two lovely horses. It was just the two of us and our guide, a very nice guy from Idaho. We saw lush foliage, heard...More

Nice and laid back trail ride in a scenic area. Good for younger kids who want to ride on their own. Great guides and my favorite feature at the ranch -- Romeo the border collie.

We had a great ride and learned about the history of the island from our guide. We saw some stunning views. My husband had never been riding before and he enjoyed it. We also left with some free citrus from their trees.

Horse back riding at the Ironwood ranch in Maui is a trail that weaves through 1500 acres of fallow land. Full of the ironwood pines the trail is interesting and treacherous because of rain which makes the hill side slippery. Our guide was knowledgeable and...More

My equestrian daughter did not want to ride here because of how they cared for the horses - try Lahaina Stables instead!

Any guidance on which of the trail rides to do with a family of four? All of us are novice riders except our 7 year old equestrian ; )

Response from Aggie91Dad | Reviewed this property |
We were pretty much the same scenario; our 7 yr old was the "equestrian". There was only one trail ride available when we went and I don't think it's going to be that different of an experience no matter which one you... More
I'm interested in booking but wanted to know if experienced riders can trot or canter sometime on the trail?

No, you can not
My husband and I are interested in booking this during our stay this week. Now we believe his weight should be fine based on the last time he weighed himself, which was recent. Do you simply provide the height and weight or do they weigh you with their own scale?

If your husband's weight is close to the max limit (220lbs I believe), they will weigh him when you arrive. Their priority is the safety of the horses.
