We had a fantastic time riding in a shadowy forest with some great views of the ocean and the north shore. The horses were very well trained. We did this ride 2 times in the past few years and we loved it. Thank you, Mark,...More

Beautiful trail ride through Hawaiian landscape; Patti pointed out different plants and trees along the way. She took pictures for us and also gave us some tips for viewing sea turtles on the North Shore. I highly recommend Happy Trails!

Hello! I am an experienced rider, and I wanted to ask if there are any chances during the trail to canter/gallop? I've been on many trails during which it was strictly walking at all times. I understand this may be a safety issue, but I just wanted to ask. Thanks :)

Aloha Nina, and thank you for your question. We are unable to allow guests to canter/gallop our horses as it presents a possible unsafe situation with mixed ability riders in the group. Our trail rides are walking with some... More

Aloha Evelyn B., I was very surprised to read the review of your experience of our horseback trail ride. The joy that comes from being around these majestic, intuitive creatures along with riding through our kua aina is an experience to be treasured. To think that we missed the mark for you to embrace this special mana is heartbreaking. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you further. As we retire our horses far younger than you refer to, ride in bit less tack, and are praised for the quality of our herd of horses, this is most out of character for our operation. Upon speaking with you I will address the issue immediately. Likewise, I would like to provide you with your choice of a refund for your trail ride, or extend a complimentary ride to you. We embrace the aloha spirit , and upon your decision will do what is pono. Blessings be upon you.

I was wondering what the minimum age limit is and if you allow small children to double ride with a parent?

Aloha and mahalo for your inquiry. The youngest age we take on our guided horseback tours is 6 years. We are not permitted to allow doubling in the saddle due to strict insurance specifications. Safety first! Best wishes... More
