    All I can say is wow. This is by far my favorite activity in Maui. Makena Stables is located outside of Wailea and is in a quieter area, which is really relaxing. The employees at the stables are very well trained and dedicate their full time into the care of the horses. The horses are calm and very strong and smart. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this to anyone! Wish I could go everyday or even possibly work there!

    We started the journey by driving through a state park filled with huge lava fields that looked like MARS to me. I recommend leaving an hour or two early for the sunset ride (starts at 3:30 pm) so that you have time to hop out at one of the beaches you pass on the way or to explore the lava fields in the state park.Our tour guide Christine was so happy, friendly, and knowledgeable. We toured through lava fields, isolated beaches with mixed lava/coral boulders, saw wild goats and deer roaming the volcano, climbed to the top of one of the most recent lava vents to see what I thought was intriguing lava formations, and I loved my gentle horse Akahi. My wife and I are “beginner” level horse riders and we never felt frightened or in danger. It’s obvious that the workers love their horses and nature…it’s not just a tourist trap. Thank you Makena stables!!
