Awesome, friendly staff that helps even the most inexperienced rider feel confident! My group of 5 enjoyed the 1-1/2 hour ride with ages ranging from 15-82! The views are beautiful and so are the horses! Definitely an experience that we won’t forget! Thank you! Mahalo!

My husband, 14 year old nephew and myself recently enjoyed the 1-1/2 hour ride. The horses were well trained and easy to ride. Pleasant ride through the woods with a great view at the end. Staff was friendly and attentive.

We had so much fun on the 1.5 hour trail ride. My daughter and I both felt well cared for and had a fantastic time. What a beautiful forested trail and a gorgeous view of the ocean.

Super friendly staff and awesome horses. We are beginners at riding and really enjoyed the ride. Would have preferred a trail with more views.

Our entire family really enjoyed the 1.5 hour ride. We took our 10 year old that had never been on a horse as well as our experienced teenager. They both had a blast.

Very slow and easy pace. Nothing too exciting but the view at the end is beautiful. Our family enjoyed their experience including a 16, 14 and 12 year old.

Guides were great. My 7 and 10 year olds were fine riding for the first time. Many of the horses are retired polo horses. Very well trained horses. I read elsewhere this was the only place who could take riders under age 10. They also...More
