Makena Stables





"The Best Horseback Riding in Hawaii"


Owned since 1983 by Pat and Helaine Borge, Makena Stables offers much more than "just a trail ride. This is the "real thing"

For more than 30 years we have been committed to offering a unique quality riding experience for our guests with true aloha spirit.

We have exceptional quality horses, many trained & used competitively by us in rodeos. Because we really love what we do, this shows in the care of the horses and the quality of your experience. We match each person to their horse by ability and offer help and lessons as needed by each rider, sharing our insight into the animals that you will be getting to know.


Our groups are small to keep things friendly and interesting for everyone. All of our rides are on Ulupalakua Ranch, 20,000 acres of some of the most beautiful wild land on Maui, overlooking the Ahihi Kinau Natural Area Reserve, La Perouse Bay and offering spectacular views of the most recent lava flow and outer islands.


  Enjoy quick glimpses of Axis deer and other wildlife. During the winter months we get great views of the whales and dolphins below in La Perouse Bay. Bring your camera for some great shots.

Makena Stables is locally owned and operated since 1983. Guided groups average 4 persons but sometimes have larger parties. Western style riding. Children 13 yrs and older.

All rides are physically strenuous, our trails are rugged and technically challenging and we recommend that all riders be in good physical condition. Weight limit is 200lbs. Minimum height requirement for riders of 5'11" (if 200 lbs.)
