An experience like no other, gentle and well trained horses, outstanding and friendly staff and a trail that took us through parts of the island we could not have seen any other way.

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

This company really cares about horses and people. When I called they were very thorough about safety, ages of children, recommendations for our group, directions, and policies. I brought my daughter and her friend for her 10th birthday and she now wants to go for every birthday. They thanked me 3 times each while on the trail- they had that... More

We feel blessed to share our passion for horses while exploring the rustic beauty of our slice of paradise. To hear of the jubilation and appreciation from anyone who rides with us is rewarding. However, to bring... More

So impressed to see the horses being ridden without bits. Workers there were very humane and kind to the horses, you can tell they truly care about the healthiness, and happiness of the animals. None of the horses were locked up in stalls, they were all roaming around in pastures. Incredibly beautiful views, and relaxing ride.10/10 I would definitely go... More

The best horses I have ever ridden on. The horses are so responsive and well-trained. We had an amazing experience with so many great views. We saw many wild boars as well as a peacock. We learned so much about the land as well. To sum it all up, it is an incredible adventure that you do not want to... More

During our one week stay in Oahu, this was by far my favorite excursion. Even for a novice rider, it is a must try! Such a relaxing way to see beautiful scenery and lush mountainside. We rode with the owner, Mark, and we had the best time! Great guy!

Absolutely wonderful time! Beautiful scenery & amazing people! I was alone for this trip & felt an incredible sense of welcome at Happy Trails. Made some friends from all over the US during an afternoon I'll never forget. The changing scenery is truly majestic. The owners are very personable & the horses may be the most well trained I've ridden... More
