Enjoy the Sunset Skies and Cooler Weather!

The Sunset horseback ride is a 90-minute guided ride. This ride goes out in the cooler portion of the day and riders experience the beautiful Hawaiian sunset skies while on horseback. This is a walking only ride and no trotting or cantering will be allowed. This is a great ride for the whole family. This ride is suitable for all skill levels ages 7 and up. No pregnant riders will be allowed. Our weight limit for any rider is 240 lbs.

This ride winds through mountain trails with occasional ocean views. The highlight spot is our scenic lookout which provides a great view of the Windward side of Oahu. This is a great picture taking spot so bring your camera. We work to keep our ride sizes small because we want our guest to feel like they have experienced a true Paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy) horseback ride. Guests are likely to see wild pigs, cattle, and other horses roaming through our mountain trails.

Our whole family took this ride out to see the sunset on the North Shore and it was one of the most wonderful things we’ve ever done together. Worth every penny to see the sunset on horseback like a cowboy!

Seeing the sunset on horseback will honestly make you feel like you’re a cowboy in the old west. Me and my family had a beautiful experience here and we got some great photos of us all up on horseback. This is one of the best family tours in Hawaii!
