This tour/experience was amazingly breath taking and highly recommendable. If you're looking for a family friendly horseback ride this is it. This was our first horseback experience and it was just beautiful. These creatures are just amazing. We were greeted with delicious lychee as we waited for a couple of other tourists and the guide was super informative from everything... More

This was a ton of fun. We chose Happy Trails because they allow younger children. We had a 7 year old, and they made him feel very comfortable. Don't get cheap on me Datson The views you get on the longer ride is well worth the small dollar difference. Loved it. 2 years ago we did the Kaluoa ranch 2... More

Mark and Heather were absolutely amazing. I took my 6 and 8 year old children and they were so well cared for by both the hosts and the beautifully trained horses. The terrain was spectacular and we had the best time. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone, they were so super friendly and helpful.

This was a fantastic day. Our kids were 13 and 10 and I'm not sure who enjoyed it more. Us or them! The horses were beautiful. The staff were amazing and it remains one of the highlights from our first trip to Hawaii last September. Thank you so much for creating some magical memories for our family. We will be... More

Riding with Happy Trails gave me exactly what I was looking for: A gorgeous trail ride up in the cool mountains, so a chance to see a different part of the North Shore, with some fabulous ocean views also. The horses are retired polo ponies -- gentle, classy, and very well trained. Mark who guided our trip was very good... More

I chose Happy Trails because it sounded the most authentic. I wanted a TRAIL RIDE to see the beautiful Oahu scenery and Mark and Happy Trails delivered in spades! Mark answered all my questions about the trees and native flora we were riding through, and shared information he knew I would be interested in. It was a tour and a... More

My daughter and I loved it! Take bug spray, sunglasses, a hat (depending what time of day). Closed toed shoes are required. The horses were well behaved, did not look mistreated/malnourished. Our guide Beverly was awesome! She was extremely friendly with my chatty daughter not dismissing her at all. She was extremely helpful explaining the do's and don'ts before, during,... More

Mahalo nui loa for taking your time to review your 5 star experience at our ranch! In the winter months, we tend to have a bit more rain. Your suggestion to bring bug spray is always a good idea when participating in any outdoor activity. We take pride in the care and well being of our horses, and are happy... More

Mark and his kind, helpful staff made our visit a memorable experience. Neither my wife, our 7-year-old son nor I had ever been on a horse, but the Happy Trails staff made us feel comfortable, confident and happy on our first-ever horseback ride. The horses are well cared for and very gentle. Our 90-minute ride traversed a quiet forest, hilltop... More
