Located in the heart of Kula, True North is a full service equestrian facility offering a variety of services from lessons and training to camps and sales.
Located at a beautiful and well-appointed farm on Maui, True North offers a variety of services from beginner horse riding lessons to a full Hunter/Jumper and Equitation training program. We also offer professional training and work with young sport horses. All levels of horses and riders (including children) are welcome in our programs.
We offer beginner through advanced lessons in hunter/jumpers or just riding for fun. Lessons are available on your horse or on one of our reliable and safe lesson horses. We aim to provide a solid foundation for our riders and build confidence in and out of the saddle with each rider’s goals in mind. Our goal is to nurture and assist in creating a well-rounded horseman. Lessons are offered to children 5-years through adults.
The key to a successful Hunter/Jumper training program is one that promotes happy, healthy and safe horses that enjoy their work, and encourages good communication between horse and rider. All horses are unique and therefore learn differently, so they should be approached with a well thought out individual plan that caters to that particular horse’s disposition and abilities. What the owner hopes to achieve with their horse also play a key role in developing an individual training program. True North offers an array of training options that can be individually tailored to you and your horse. Schedules for riding lessons and other services are flexible to suit your needs.
Our wonderful horse camps aim to teach children (ages 6-13) about the wonderful world of horses and English (hunter/jumper) riding and equitation. Through horse-related games and activities, campers learn about the care of horses, their characteristics, breeds, colors, and safe-handling; both on the ground and while in the saddle in a fun-filled environment.
We occasionally have quality horses for sale. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, with our extensive list of contacts throughout the US and Canada, we should be able to help you find the perfect match and assist with the process of getting your new horse to Hawaii.
Leases are occasionally available on our wonderful lesson horses. Please inquire as to lease availabilities and terms.
