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 do therapeutic riding and support wounded warriors.

Ride was through beautiful land that Happy Trails leases. Forests, open areas, and a view of the ocean near the end. We had a mix of ages in our group and everyone felt comfortable. We enjoyed having both group and individual photos taken by the guide on our phone (so there was no expectation to purchase photos.) However, we paid for the 90 minute trail ride and weren't given our full time. We were back 25 minutes early which was very disappointing. It's clear there is a route that is followed and since our ride was smooth we finished early.

We are two educators that are on Summer break. We wanted to do something different so we decided to go horseback riding. We googled it and chose Happy Trails Hawaii. Best decision! It's a small family business in Pupukea. I liked that we didn't have to drive very far. We picked the hour and a half ride. It was a walking pace. Very relaxing and comfortable. Fabulous view at the end. They were really nice to us. Highly recommend!! We decided to go horseback riding again soon. All educators should do this to unwind!! We loved it

My wife and I went here on our wedding day. The staff are amazing people and very helpful as my wife was a first time rider. Great trail to ride on and the horses were very well trained.
