This was a great experience! The valley was beautiful, my horse was sure-footed along the way. Our guides were really knowledgeable about the area we rode in and patient with inexperienced riders.

What an awesome experience and great way to explore Waipi'o Valley. The guides are very pleasant, attentive, and informative. No issues with horses, very well trained. Very pleasant and enjoyable experience and well worth the price.

Had an amazing ride! The weather was less than ideal, raining and blowing hard, but our guide Jackie was willing to tough it out with us. Horses were great, and Jackie and Darian were both very nice.

A nice ride, in a good location. Be prepared for rain. Do not forget the sunscreen. You can walk only, or trot or more if you are comfortable, but for brief stretches. I do recommend it. (One horse slipped in mud and the rider fell,...More

We had a lovely ride through the hills. I would recommend a coat ( which they will supply ) if it's at all cool outside. Great guides with lots of interesting information.

I had never been horseback riding before, and my partner hadn't been in 15 years, but we both felt very comfortable on the horses! The instructions were clear and easy for a beginner to understand. We had the option to try trotting and cantering, but...More
