Travel Blog #100 – CJM Country Stables, Scenic Valley Beach Ride

Jan 5, 2021 | Activity Information

I think it is safe to say that if there is any single activity that an equestrian would enjoy on their trip to the Hawaiian islands, it is CJM Country Stables. The CJM Ranch is located on the sunny shores of Poipu on the south side of the island of Kauai. This dryer climate and coastal location make something possible that is very desirable, riding the horses on the beach!

As soon as we checked in to the ranch house I knew that we were going to have a good time, the spirits of the ranch were very laid back and easygoing. There was a little ranch dog that greeted us upon check in. There were children out helping their dad saddle up the horses and there was even a little boy with no shirt on that was running laps around the ranch house on a four wheeler.

As soon as everyone arrived to the stable we got on our horses and began our ride. The route we took actually took us along the beach on the way there and the way back. We waded the horses up to their knees in the water and took turns taking pictures of each other on horseback in the surf.

After we finished the sandy section of our ride we began to head inland, here we meandered through the woods and open pastures lands that made up the majority of the ranch. At one point we stopped for High quality pictures with the windswept coastline of southeast Kauai in the background.
Eventually we completed our look around the ranch and made our way past the CJM rodeo fields back to the ranch house where we started. After asking the other group members to make sure, I can say for certain that I was not the only one that enjoyed the horseback ride on the beach with CJM Stables.
