This was our second visit to Happy Trails Hawaii and are very happy with the tours we've got. It was a fun, but casual ride through the rain forest and our guide was an expert, so our daughter got a great history lesson about the Kings and Queens of Hawaii and their burial locations. Mark and the staff was great... More

I've never been horseback riding, but I had always wanted to, and Happy Trails has such great reviews on TripAdvisor...for good reason! From the time we arrived to the time our ride ended, we felt well taken care of. The horses were lovely and appeared very healthy. The instructions were easy to follow, and the guides were extremely knowledgeable and... More

good trail. But based on the reviews I was expecting more. I got the same experience with other horse rides in the states. But this is Oahu!. I think the problem was that while real nice, our trail guide was not Mark. We really didn't learn anything about the area or the vegetation, trees etc from our guide. A couple... More

I scheduled a ride for my daughter and me when she visited me in Hawaii. It has been years since she and I rode together and it was a wonderful reunion. The guide Mark is a friendly and professional fellow and was always ready to answer a question or help identify the various plants along the trail. The horses are... More

Excellent ride and wonderful folks. I am not an experienced rider the patience they had with me was very caring. Stopping to allow pictures, they also will take your picture. Very good horses, gentle.

I really loved this experience. The only was that they didn't make us wear helmets which I didn't like. I would have rather wore one, just to be safe. It was a pleasant time, peaceful, lots of pretty scenery, and when you got to a certain point, the leader, would take a picture of you, and any other people you... More

My wife and I went with our two daughters, ages 10 and 6, on and 8-day trip to O'ahu and before we headed out we booked a trail ride with Happy Trails. This is an all-green outfit that uses the most wonderful retired polo horses. My kids had ridden a couple of times, but I had only ridden once- it... More

I took one of the longer rides offered as that was the only thing available for the day that I could make it. The horses were very well trained, very nicely maintained and it was a very nice long trail ride with pretty views overlooking the shore from the mountain ridge. The guide was also very nice and it was... More

I went on the one hour and a half ride, that actually lasted longer than that ( yayyy lucky us :) and it was an absolute pleasure. Happy Trails Hawaii is located up in the mountains above North Shore so you get some awesome 360 degree views of the mountain and ocean,you might even get to see whales off in... More
