Great for family and friends. Fun rides. Friendly hosts. One of the best activities I've had in Hawaii! Strongly recommend. Price is reasonable. You got to book it early especially during Christmas season.

Just took my family of 4 and we had a great time. No one apart from myself had ridden a horse before. They all had a smile on their face the whole time. The instructions at the start were good and the horses were fantastic. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were very laid back and knowledgeable. I would... More

We have been here twice and having travelled along the U.S. west coast, three Hawaiian Islands and midwest, I will say this is the most peaceful, stress free place I've ever had a trail ride. The first time we went, my horse-loving 10 year old daughter and my non-animal loving 8 year old son rode. Even my son enjoyed the... More

Visiting Happy Trails Hawaii was a highlight during my stay on the North Shore. The owner and his staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Guests were offered star fruit before the tour which was a real treat. Whether you are a beginner or experienced at horseback riding, I would recommend making a point to go here if you are... More

I visited Happy Trails on November 18th 2014 and had am absolute wonderful and relaxing time. Mark and his staff are very excited about their ranch and will go out of their way to assist you with anything or question you have. There is a great view of the ocean. I will definitely be going back.

It was our first time visiting Hawaii as a family, with our 10 and 7 year-old daughters. The fun of each one being able to ride their own horse made them feel in heaven. Our guide, Mark, was OUTSTANDING, being friendly, attentive and constantly looking for ways to make our experience memorable. I RECOMMEND IT 100%, especially for families with... More

Took my wife and middle daughter here for their horse-riding appointment. The receiving area didn't look very good - not a lot of effort to please customers but my wife and daughter enjoyed riding the trail. They enjoyed themselves and would do it again. My only suggestion is to make the receiving area more hospitable.

Remembered reading about Happy Trails and all the good reviews, then realized I was about 1 mile away and decided to stop in. Found out that you typically need reservations, but they were able to fit us in! The guy who runs this (Mark) is a really a great guy. He gave us instructions on riding, then the group went... More
