Getting The Most Out Of Your Ride

Horseback riding on Maui is a great experience and here’s a few tips on how to get the most out of your horseback ride on Maui.

Get sleep

When you are going horseback riding on Maui, make sure you (and your family) get plenty of rest the night before! Especially if you’re not accustomed to riding, it can be more rigorous than it seems. Horseback riding on Maui is a once in a lifetime experience and it’s worth making sure you feel your best for it. Wait until you’ve recovered from jet lag and schedule your ride on a relaxed day.

Get there early

…and make sure you have correct and thorough directions. Many places to ride horseback on Maui are ranches that are remote locations that a GPS may not find correctly. Read any additional directions on the ranch website before you go and have a backup map handy. Plan to be early, so that if something goes wrong you have time. It’s also polite to be early for your horseback ride so you can sign paperwork and get ready to go. You don’t want to be the person holding the group up!

Wear sunscreen

When horseback riding on Maui even if it’s cloudy, wear sunscreen. The weather is gorgeous on Maui but don’t let a bad sunburn ruin your horseback riding experience.

Wear comfortable clothes

Make sure you’re wearing jeans and close toed shoes, as well as a comfortable shirt. Temperatures can vary based on altitude, so layer for the weather. Jeans that are snug tend to be best because they’re less likely to rub.
