Every Date is Better with Horses
Sometimes the best way to get closer is to get away. There’s no better place to spend quality time together than Hawaii’s North Shore, and you haven’t seen the island until you’ve seen it by horseback, riding through the forest trails and overlooking the ocean.

This is a unique and unforgettable experience, far away from all the noise of the regular tourist spots. You’ll see a side of Oahu that many don’t know about and enjoy a private picnic together, complete with delicious sandwiches on fresh homemade bread, fruit, and a bottle of sparkling cider. The highlight of the ride is a sweeping panoramic view of the ocean from our lookout point, where you can take in the full scale and beauty of the island. (If you can take your eyes off each other, that is.)

If you’re comfortable on horses and would like to upgrade to an advanced ride with trotting and cantering allowed, just let us know!

We visited Hawaii on our honeymoon and my wife’s parents treated us to this sweetheart ride as part of our gift. This was a very private and beautiful way to spend time together and one of the highlights of our honeymoon.

We got engaged in Hawaii and this is a tour my fiancee booked during our vacation. This was a much more romantic experience than I thought and we really enjoyed exploring the coast and having a nice picnic along the trail!

We booked this tour so my husband and I would have quality time together. And we did! Riding the horse and seeing the sunset was just a perfect combination! We will cherish this memory forever!

The sceneries are breath-taking! The horses are so lovely! We saw wild pigs and a lot of cattle! This place is serenity defined!
