Clearview Riding Academy Now True North Equestrian

 

maui kula horseback riding lessons adults kids I know nothing about horses.  From the moment my daughter would head straight towards the ‘Horse’ section at the book store, I knew we were in trouble.  We’ve tried out a few (ok, almost all) of the horseback riding facilities around Upcountry Maui, but once we found Clearview, we stopped looking.  It recently came under new management, and we couldn’t be happier.

Formerly known as Clearview Riding Academy, the facility is now being managed by Rachelle MacKenzie’s True North Equestrian Services. Rachelle offers horseback riding lessons, schooling and training programs, at the facility towards the top of Omaopio Road in Kula.  Instruction is available for ages 5 to adult – beginning rider though advanced hunter/jumper, or riding just for fun. Every rider receives an individualized program to help them meet their goals. Lessons are available on your horse or one of their safe and reliable lesson horses (including Demi, the adorable Welsh Pony!) .  Rachelle is acceting new clients and/or horses of all ages and abilities for instruction, training and schooling/riding.
