I took my family this Sunday afternoon on a Happy Trails Hawaii trail ride. All of the horses were friendly and very easy to ride. Trigger was awesome! Our two young lady tour guides, who's names I embarrassingly forgot to write down, were knowledgeable and made it a great day. I definitely recommend.

Huge wood place. Super well trained horses. Perfect weather. The trail has deep downslope and upslope, so very fun experience. Even young kids age 5 can participate. Super good service.

While this wasn't a family ride with teenagers, instead it was a country ride with my late twenty-some daughter. We sauntered into the Iron Wood pine and rubber tree forests above the Waimea Valley. From there we could view the fabled North shore beaches. Our guide said she had seen whales earlier last week from the upper pastures. We saw... More

A great introduction to horse-back riding on a wonderful trail through beautiful forest on the ridge above Waimea Valley. The ride was led very capably and amiably by the host Mark, and horses were very well trained and easily guided. They were all retired polo horses, and Mark an ex-pro player. Mark told us they were trained to be ridden... More

It is so rewarding to read how much you enjoyed your horseback ride with us! Our weather this past year has been quite unpredictable. Winter months can bring rain, sometimes more than we'd like! Though it does keep the ranch nice and green, it can be more than we'd care for, and will cancel rides if we deem it unsafe.... More

My (now) fiancé and I did this tour over the weekend and it was a fantastic experience. The grounds are on the beautiful north shore of Oahu and are far enough from everything to get a peaceful and relaxing escape. I went there as a surprise excursion from my boyfriend.

Fantastic facility! The owner, Mark, was very welcoming and friendly. All the horses were clean, healthy and ready to go. It is obvious that their care is top priority!
