Highlight of our visit to Maui! A great opportunity to see some of the beautiful ranch lands that are in East Maui. The experience of horseback riding could not have been better. Driving into the ranch you can see that it is well cared for by the people who work here. Tara & Kaipo took great care of us by getting us on the right horses for our experience level to touring us around the ranch. Lunch at the cabin was delicious and the views couldn't be better. If you are visiting Maui, don't miss riding at Private Upcountry Horseback!
Highlight of our daughter's first trip to Maui. My 6 year old daughter's dream has been to ride horses. While its difficult to find a ranch who will allow a 6 year old to ride, Piiholo was very welcoming and friendly from the first contact, even though we weren't in a position to spend on a large group ride. Morgan's patient and personal tutelage made Kaitlyn's experience feel extra special. The steady rain couldn't dampen her spirits and this was certainly her most memorable experience of our Maui vacation. She keeps talking about her next visit to the ranch (and how she'll teach the rest of us to ride). Thank you Morgan and everyone at Piiholo - we'll definitely be back on our next trip!
Horseback Hawaii! Never road a horse before, but our trainer and ranch hand Morgan put me at ease. Two hours with a great horse named Maui, up and down hills on this beautiful ranch. Well worth it. Got great pictures as well.
Worth Every Penny! We did the three hour ride with lunch. We were greeted with extreme friendliness and even felt like family. We have ridden horses on vacation about 10 times and were sceptical about paying the extra money for a private guide. It was much more personable and memorable. We have three children and thought these horses were the best trained horses that we have seen. Very clean stables and beautiful land. The lunch is definitely worth the extra money. 'Scuba Sue" was very pleasant to talk with and went the extra mile to make our daughter's birthday memorable. Terry our guide was also very friendly.
Magical Upcountry Journey. We arrived and were treated to coffee from our friendly guide. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. The horses my family rode were very healthy and much loved with gentle temperament. We did not feel rushed and were treated to the beauty that only Private Upcountry Horseback can provide. This is not your average trail ride. We ate lunch at the family's cabins and enjoyed delightful food and conversation with the trail guides. This is an adventure of a lifetime!
Loved it! Horses were well-mannered and well taken cared of, guides were amazing and made us feel like family, ranch was gorgeous as soon as you pull up and out and about, customer service at its finest! The private cabins and lunch served their is so intimate and the views spectacular. This is my #1 recommendation as a local living on the island to anyone visiting Maui!
We had such a beautiful, and fun trail ride with our wrangler for the day, Tara. This ranch and views are breathtaking. Our daughters, husband and I learned...
Wow! What a great little ranch! It's not one of those ranch's that are churning people everyday. This is family owned and run. Such nice people and the ride...
My sister and I booked the 2-hour private ride. Our horses were tacked and ready to go upon arrival and our wrangler, Molly, gave us a quick introductory...
