Na'alapa Stables

Kahua Ranch & Waipi'o Valley Horse Back Riding Adventures in Hawaii Since 1981

Kahua Ranch on Horseback


Kahua Ranch is spectacularly beautiful as well as one of the oldest working ranches in Hawaii.


Enjoy panoramic views of the mountains and the coastline, stately cinder cones and lush pastures dotted with grazing sheep and cattle. Our experienced paniolos (Hawaiian cowboys) and well trained horses make for superb riding conditions, maximum safety for the beginners and maximum flexibility for the experts. We offer a ride that is not nose to tail. Opportunities for trotting and cantering are available.
