This was our best day on the island. Those are some of the best people and horses we've met. The property is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing this with us.

We are most fortunate to be able to share our passion for horseback riding with guests such as your beautiful family. These are the memories that will last a lifetime, long after the next new electronic gadget is in a landfill. Your 10 year old daughter may have a hidden talent as a 'horse whisperer".

Patty was so much fun and she took some great photos for us! We had the pleasure of riding Happy and Waimea. Both horses were very easy to control; we've never ridden before. Very windy so we lost 1/2 hour of our tour but were quickly refunded the difference and still had an amazing time!!

Congratulations newlyweds! Thank you for understanding our concerns about taking the longer and higher elevated trails during those gusty winds last weekend. We are pleased you enjoyed your horseback ride and were "blown away" by our well trained horses. We wish you a lifetime of happy trails! More

Absolutely amazing ride, our guides Marc and Patty were sensational. We are so happy we decided to do this considering it was about an hour opposite of where we were staying. Totally worth the trip!Beautiful horses, you can tell they take great care of these powerful animals. Highly recommend for first time riders!

We sincerely appreciate your 5 star review! Mahalo for venturing to our side of the island to share a horseback trail ride with us on the north shore. I am certain this calls for some extra apples and carrots for our amazing horses. Aloha and congratulations newlyweds! More
