My husband and I went on the two hour private ride with Laura and had a wonderful time. The barn and facilities were clean and it was clear they really cared for the horses and they gave us a riding review before beginning the trail ride. Our horses were very easy going and responsive. The ranch is very scenic and... More

The 2 hour ride was perfect. Friendly staff and horses, panoramic vistas and a chance to experience the spirit of upcountry Maui. All said highly recommended - I will definitely return. This is not an absentee operation. The owners are on site and even communicate with the customers to ensure a great ride from aloha (booking) to aloha (farewell). Another... More

We rode their experienced mounts up the hill to round up some mexican cattle (smaller animals used for roping practice). After riding through the warm mist, we rounded up the cattle to a smaller pen area and practiced sorting the steers. The instructions given were excellent, and we were sorting out individuals within twenty minutes. Although the mist completely soaked... More

My husband booked the "Cowboy for a Day" for the two of us; I am an experienced rider/horse owner (with NO cattle sorting experience) and my husband has ridden....maybe 5 times. The two of us had the greatest, most memorable experience together sorting cows; so if any non riding husband of a horsewoman is reading this: YOU CAN DO THIS!... More

I love this ranch. It is beautiful, the horses are excellent, the staff kind, gentle, knowledgeable and warm. This is a great place to ride and see endless views and the real beauty of Maui, untouched. Spacious feeling, away from it all, relaxing, and fun. Expect to enjoy every minute. I always did.

Our guide was Tara, and we had so much fun. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour which made it so much more enjoyable than riding with 10 or more tourists as is often the case at other tours. The ranch is gorgeous, and is over 800 acres. A lot of where we rode was open... More

The Grand Wailea Hoyle booked this excursion for us as we wanted a horseback riding tour for my 13 year old daughter and myself. This ranch did not disappoint!! Laurel (or Laura) was our guide. She was very friendly and we loved that we had a private ride with just the three of us. All the horses were beautiful and... More

On our last visit to Maui, we decided to go riding. We chose the 3 hour private ride with lunch and it was awesome. these were spirited horses, chosen to match our riding ability. And, the scenery was gorgeous, with ocean views all around. The Ranch has over 800 acres and we meandered through some beautiful landscape. I am so... More

Our daughter loves horses and wanted to go riding for her 6th birthday while we were on Maui, however there are no ranches that will take kids under 8 or 9 due to insurance requirements. After calling around, I found Piiholo Ranch - so grateful to their wonderful staff that went the extra mile to provide a private lesson for... More
