When you arrive at the coastline, the exceptional guides will take photos of you on horseback—no selfies or horsies necessary! You’ll meander back to the corral, and upon your return, there will be quite the barbeque lunch waiting for you. You’ll eat together with the guides and guests, sharing beef, chicken, salads, bread, drinks, and more! Yahoo!
If you prefer Maui horseback riding on the West Side, then Lahaina Stables has the trails you want. This fabulous ranch offers three different tours: a morning historical and cultural ride, an afternoon lunch ride, and an evening sunset ride. Each brings you through two incredible valleys in the Kahalawai (West Maui) Mountains, and all have unbelievable views of Lahaina Town, Lahaina Harbor, and the three neighbor islands you can see from that side: left to right, they are the brilliant Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokai. Your destination while you ride is a lovely pond located in the back of the valley. Not many people get to see that special place, and you’re sure to love it. If you go in the morning or at sunset, drinks and snacks are provided. The afternoon ride includes a great deli-style lunch.
