If you are looking for some “giddy-up!” on your ride, our Private Advanced Trail Ride combines the beauty of the Hawaiian country in Oahu with the adventure of skilled riding. Perfect for those who have ridden a minimum of 5 rides through the advanced rider.

The Private Advanced Horseback experience at Gunstock Ranch is a 90-minute guided experience that provides the opportunity for controlled trotting and cantering within the ride. This experience is for those who have ridden a minimum of five times to those who are experienced riders. Wranglers do a safety briefing and assessment with each rider. Wranglers assess riding skills and base the pace of the ride on the “least skilled ability” of the riders in the group. Wranglers are responsible for keeping the ride safe and all riders on their horses, so they make the judgment call on how fast the ride moves out. This ride does not guarantee that riders will get out to trot or canter as it is based on wrangler assessment of riders’ ability to stay safe in the saddle. In the event a ride isn’t safe at a trot or a canter, you’re still taken out on an awesome private riding experience at a safe pace.

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.
