Our family went on the Waikapu Plantation Ride w/lunch. Definitely the best cared for horses, best tack, and best instruction we've ever seen on a trail ride. Beautiful views, really nice and knowledgeable guide, and a great catered lunch. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely ride up in the hills, plenty of Longhorn cattle to see, well cared for horses and nice people. This is the best kept grounds and horses that I have ever seen for a rental.
