Had jake as our guide and he was awesome. Two of my friends have never rode before, I grew up with horses. We had an awesome time and saw great sights. I really enjoyed our ride. It was 90 minute scenic ride. Would suggest this to anyone. Families with kids (above 6yo) couples, friends, anyone

My wife is an avid rider. Our ride was tailored to our skill set. Cammie, our guide, was great. Good experience, highly recommend it.

“Nice views, excellent tour guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My Husband and I are spending our honeymoon in Hawaii and wanted to do some horseback riding. We had planned to do it through Turtle Bay Resort, where we are staying, but the concierge suggested Gunstock Ranch. We had an excellent time with our tour guide Cammie! She was very nice, knowledgeable, and very down to earth. If we make it back and Cammie is still there we will be requesting her! The views that you seen at the top was quite scenic and peaceful. Thanks so much, it felt a little like home visiting such a place. :)

“Need To Schedule”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

After reviewing the web page for this ranch, I saw they offered 30 minute horse rides for kids, starting every hour. We drove to the ranch up to the "office" building, and no one was there. An employee walked up to us and told us she was the only one there, and was saddling up to take a customer for a ride. I asked about the hourly scheduled kids rides, and she informed me that rides must be scheduled in advance.
Although the kids didn't get to ride, we were told we could look around and see some of the animals at the ranch. So the kids got to pet some goats, a donkey, and some horses, salvaging something out of the trip.

“Great family fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

For many first time riders in our group, young and old, the team at Gunstock Ranch made us feel very comfortable. We went on the 1 1/2 hr tour that took us up in the hills above Laie, Oahu, which was a beautiful site. The trail was also beautiful, with wide open views of the ranch and then a close up of the forest trees and plants as the trails led us to the peak. The kids had a great time including meeting the other animals around the ranch including Cheeseballs and Bullet. All the guides were very friendly and informative. Overall great family outing that we would highly recommend!
