I cannot say enough about the wonderful people on this ranch. From the person on the phone who books your ride to the people who guide you on the trail ride, they are all amazing people. My six year old daughter wanted to horseback ride so badly but I was hesitant to let her go on a big horse. I... More

We are from Hawaii and do the stacation adventures as I call them! This is money well spent! The staff is great, horses are great with kids, and most of all the land is breathe taking!! My daughter is 7 and she did great! Thank you to the staff for your kindness!

Our family of four including our 20 and 18 year old daughters had a wonderful time riding horses at Happy Trails. My husband and I were a little anxious since we had never ridden a horse before but it was so relaxing and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. The horses were very tame. My daughter wore her Go Pro and... More

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.

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
