We're the "Best Place to Find Yourself on Horseback" according to Hawaii Magazine's 2008 "Best of Hawaii" - and they should know! Ride our beautiful horses through lush, exotic valleys, ironwood forests, and pineapple fields, while enjoying spectacular panoramic views of the outer islands! Nestled in the midst of unspoiled mountains, rain forests and farmland, Ironwood Ranch sits on acres of private land inaccessible to most, but ready and waiting for you to explore!

Jean and Chris were great. Our daughter wanted to go there for her 11th birthday. She and my 12 year old son enjoyed it. Nice "day off" from beach sun. Well-mannered horses, almost jungle-path.

Great place for a casual ride. We were asked if we were experienced riders. The definition of an experienced rider to Ironwoods was 150 times on a horse. Needless to say we were then not experienced . Had a really nice time

This was a really fun activity! My husband and I were escorted through the jungle, and up through the hills, on two lovely horses. It was just the two of us and our guide, a very nice guy from Idaho. We saw lush foliage, heard...More

Nice and laid back trail ride in a scenic area. Good for younger kids who want to ride on their own. Great guides and my favorite feature at the ranch -- Romeo the border collie.

We had a great ride and learned about the history of the island from our guide. We saw some stunning views. My husband had never been riding before and he enjoyed it. We also left with some free citrus from their trees.

If your husband's weight is close to the max limit (220lbs I believe), they will weigh him when you arrive. Their priority is the safety of the horses.
