- $40 for a 60-minute group horseback-riding lesson or a 30-minute private horseback-riding lesson ($75 value)
During lessons, riders learn to groom, tack up, and mount and dismount correctly before they learn proper riding techniques. Horses can walk, trot, cantor, and jump during lessons depending on the rider’s skill and readiness. All riders must wear long pants and covered shoes. Helmets will be provided free of charge.
Koko Crater Stables
Cool, onshore breezes swirl through the banyan trees and botanical gardens that frame Koko Crater Stables, a spacious facility nestled in the crater of a dormant volcano. Head trainer Piet Mathews, who has more than 30 years of experience tucked under his saddle, leads the center's staff, which draws on more than 20 years of equestrian know-how to conduct trail rides, lessons, and camps. In addition to helping riders to earn their spurs, Koko Crater Stables provides boarding services that include bedding, watering, and daily stall cleanings, ensuring four-legged lodgers remain comfortable and aren't tempted to tunnel out and begin new lives as bankers.
