Stable in Makena, Maui Hawaii
From April 2-9th 2009 my mom and I went to Maui, Hawaii. When we were there we went horseback riding twice. Located on what is known as the dry side of Maui is a stable in Makena. Although I can not remember the name of the stable, it was a very calm ride with excellent horses. The horses knew the land well and could easily maneuver over the rough terrain.
We rode along a beach that is only accessible on foot or horseback. As we rode we came across a wall made from lava rock. It was said to have been used by the first Hawaiians to keep the cows out of there village. The walls stood about 2-3 feet high and were only about a foot across. The small villages were long gone but the wall was still in good shape.
As the trail turned inland we started to go to an inactive volcano vent. The vent has been un active to hundreds of years, and we were headed to the top so we could see the view and the vent. We were more than half way when we dismounted our horses and tied them to trees so we could walk the rest of the was up.
