Mounted police opt for equine transportation so they don’t have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Harness real horsepower with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a one-hour Koko Crater horseback trail ride at Koko Crater Stables in Hawaii Kai (a $75 value). Trail rides take place on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at noon and 1 p.m.

Perched on the cusp of a dormant volcano's crater, Koko Crater Stables seats guests atop well-trained horses for one-hour trail rides led by expert equestrians. Verdant mountain slopes bookend groups as they clip-clop past banyan trees and other flora blossoming in the Koko Crater Botanical Gardens. Eyes absorb panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the crater's rims, scouting for geological evidence of the dinosaur step-aerobics class that created its telltale concavity.

Experienced riders may meander off for independent surveys, and remaining patrons hark to horsemanship tips from head trainer Piet Mathews or an assistant instructor. Though Koko Crater Stables outfits riders with helmets, all attendees are required to bring long pants, covered shoes, and four hand-knit leg warmers as a token of trust for their steed.

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.

My daughter loved the lesson.
Kes T. · November 29, 2016
Lovely Emma Jean and my ex-polo pony Chewy made for a lovely first time lesson. The instructor was kind, friendly and very appropriate for my level of riding. I definitely want to have more lessons. Mahalo.

Absolutely lovely experience for me and my 11 year old daughter. She got to ride under great instruction, then wash her horse and walk with it as it grazed. Wonderful instructors!
