This is a hands-on horsemanship class that gives back to our island community at the same time! Your visit with our miniature horses provides valuable exposure to new people & busy groups that these horses need to continue serving those in need. This is the only opportunity to enter Hawaiian Homelands & experience the world of horses!

This amazing lesson will cover basic horsemanship, along with horse cues and signals that will guide you to feel more relaxed in the presence of any size horse. Discover secrets from the magical world of horses, & interact with the horses personally! Learn the way horses communicate with us when they choose to be our friends & want to work with us. You will have many opportunities to capture photos and selfies with the horses.
This is a working farm, we wear masks & sanitize the horse equipment as well as is possible, but, you will be outside with live farm animals that respond better when they can see your face. Please consider our private session setting, we allow private experiences with just two bookings.

Biodynamic means healthy farming for everyone, the soil, the animals & the people who benefit from everything grown. All of our farm animals are truly loved & we take pride in their well being! We work with our miniature therapy horses to participate in everything we do! Our animals are LOVED!

A super amazing experience! There were 3 miniature horses (2 adults and 1 baby), a number of chickens, goats, and geese. Keti was excellent at showing us how to brush and work with the horses. She shared really amazing stories about her family and the town. She also walked us around the farm to tell us about plant species, her cacao plant experiments, and other interesting farm facts. Oh and she cut so many fruits for us and made fresh juices. It’s hard to fit everything she did in one review (she let us stay for much longer than an hour). We got WAY more than what we expected and could tell Keti really puts her heart into this experience.

Keti was very pleasant and educational! She explained the different stories about the land, instructions on horses, plants, and other animals. I really enjoyed the experience and highly recommend her!!

Keti and family were amazing hosts! Our family owns horses and Keti was able to teach us new things. Keti is passionate, personable, knowledgeable and likable! We had a wonderful experience and our daughter is already talking about next time. The 1 day old baby twin goats were precious and an added surprise!

This is an incredible and rare experience. I gifted it to my niece (8 yo) and nephew (11 yo) who were visiting for the holidays and they cannot stop raving about it. I think it was designed to be just a fun/casual experience, but they were very interested in all of the details about the farm and the animals and Keti took extra time to speak to them about everything (they can be very inquisitive!). They did an art project, learned about the farm, and spent time with the animals - I think it will be one of the big highlights of their time in Hawaii. They visited during the pandemic and everything was thoughtfully prepared for them - Keti took extra care to make sure the experience was safe and they felt comfortable. I spoke with her to talk through their visit and although it was clear that she had a plan and everything was in place for them, she was very responsive to any concerns and patient with my questions. It was a special day that the kids will remember for years to come. I highly recommend the experience, the setting, and Keti - everything was really wonderful.

This was one of the highlights of our holidays! Such a kind and welcoming family. The land was beautiful and rich history behind it was great to learn about. You can really tell that these people are passionate about what they do-the animals and how well they are cared for.

Keti and her family were gracious and generous hosts providing space for an unforgettable experience. Keti’s extensive knowledge of Hawaiian history, culture and traditions enabled my family and I to really gleam a sense of how special the land we were standing on is as well as how meaningful the work her and family do with the animals is. As if all that weren’t enough, we had the privilege of listening to her husband and sons play and sing a few traditional Hawaiian standards while we sipped water or tea, ate pineapple and took in the scenery. Thanks Keti and crew, this was an unforgettable experience!
