Two New Horses

Two new Benchmark Hospitality “employees”, one 10 years old and the other 20 years old, have started their “new employee training” at Turtle Bay Resort. Their training program is expected to take at least 8 weeks to complete. Only after successful completion of their training program and after passing with perfect scores their final test will they be allowed to service guests of the resort.

The Stables at Turtle Bay Resort supply a variety of different packages based on both the time available to the guest and the rider’s skill level. All provide a picturesque ride along the area’s spectacular beaches, tropical forests and sandy coastline.

The new horses will go through a two month training program where they will be ridden only by The Stables’ expert handlers along the trails in order to acclimatize the pair to their new environment. They will be carefully monitored by each of the handlers, allowing both horses to meet all the staff and all the staff to get to know both horses. Only after passing their final exams (knowledge of the trails, comfortableness in their new surroundings, etc.) will they be able to join the proud ranks of horses that supply rides for excited guests.

For further information and to reserve your ride, check out our website at or contact the stables at (808) 447-6569.

    Luke (2.5 years old now) can’t recommend the pony ride enough. He still talks about Bubba and Tim to this day! His ride was one of our best memories of our family trip the the islands.

    Congrats on the new horses. Luke hopes to make it back there soon!

    On another note, is there any way to email the stable pictures of Luke riding Bubba and Tim and Luke looking at the horses?
