Experience a little “giddy up”

Everyone always wants to jump on and ride fast when they’re with horses, and that’s exactly what our advanced ride is for. Experienced riders can kick up the energy a little and have a horseback adventure in a truly spectacular natural setting—Oahu’s North Shore. Guided by one of our wranglers, you’ll strike out onto technical trails and across open pastures, passing grazing cows who just might sneak a peek to see your skills!

This ride involves trotting and cantering, and it’s important that all participants have previous riding experience. Wranglers will assess riding skills and will base the pace of the ride on the skill level of the least experienced rider in the group. Our wranglers are well-trained and ready for anything, so as long as you have the horse skills needed, you’ll have a fun and safe experience.

Me and my husband have a horse ranch back home and we felt a little bit homesick. This was just the day out that we needed to get a quick ride in.

My daughter and I have written for years and this was the perfect experience where we could join up with some great wranglers on a beautiful trail through the north shore. They have some beautiful animals and it was nice to not be slowed down with introductory items on a tour!

It was a great experience, the wranglers did a great job with us. The views and the horses were just perfect.

Beautiful scenery and caring, friendly staff. You can tell they really take care of their horses- it was a pleasure to ride them. I will definitely come back.
