We had a great ride. Mark and Mercedes were so nice and personable. The horses were beautiful and well taken care of. The view of the North Shore was breath taking. Will definitely do this again!!

We took the longer trail when we were on Oahu for our honeymoon. Smooth ride up. Horses are polo horses and very well trained. The guides were very nice. Excellent views of the North Shore when you get to the top.

My 7 year old nephew came to visit and really wanted to go horseback riding for the first time. I looked into Happy Trails to confirm that he was old enough to ride. The reservation process was quick and they gave us a military discount for each rider. We arrived early and got all set up, which included a tutorial... More

We had 9 riders, 5 of us had never ridden before, the other 4 had only minor experience. Mark, the owner and operator, made everyone feel extremely comfortable, safe, and secure. The horses are so well trained and manageable. We had a wonderful time…. this was one of the best parts of our vacation. I highly recommend taking this horseback... More

On a recent trip to the island of Oahu, I booked a trail ride for my family of six as a birthday gift for my seven y.o. daughter who (wait for the shocker) loves horses. I've ridden horses on three continents and I know the difference between a well-run operation and one that is just trying to take YOU for... More

Family of 4 unexperienced riders went horseback riding. My daughter was a little hesitant from a previous experience. But the horses pretty much guided themselves which she thought was great. Staff was extremely friendly to us and the horses. Beautiful ride through the forest onto a great view at the end. Something different to do.

Our family was able to enjoy a great ride with the team at Happy Trails Hawaii. The horses were all beautiful, obviously very well cared for, and certainly well-trained. No bits were used, which is a sure sign of well-trained horses and caring owners. Mark, the owner & primary guide, gave us a crash course in how to ride a... More

Our family went on July 4. Three of us had never ridden before. The folks at Happy Trails were just terrific from the first phone call they were friendly & informative. With traffic we ended up being about 5 minutes late for our ride ... they actually waited for us!! The two handlers were terrific with my kids, especially my... More
