Awesome experience. While I grew up riding, this was my 9 year old daughter’s first horseback riding experience. My wife has ridden horses a few times but she is relatively inexperienced. We had a great ride through the dry Oahu mountainside with excellent views of the ocean and flora. The horses were all calm and sweet, well-behaved, and trained well. Our guide, Gavin, was excellent and explained a lot about the ranch, the island, and the horses as we rode. Recommend doing the sunset ride at 5:00; the temperature was moderate and the lowering sun made for excellent pictures. Highly recommended. For any other Chief Memory Makers out there, this is a must do for any family vacation to Oahu. Worth the drive and the cost. Our only mistake was doing 60 instead of 90 minutes; our daughter was very disappointed when it was over tho time in the petting zoo with the goats helped moderate the sting. Enjoy!

The staff was very friendly, helpful and organized. Our guide, Avery, was very nice and conversational. The riders in the middle to back of our single-file line were unable to hear some of the interesting information she shared simply due to the way we rode. The horses were well cared for, and well behaved, and it was clear that they are valued as individual personalities by our guide. This 1.5 hour scenic horseback ride was a great experience for our family and did provide very pretty views!

As I first time rider I was kind of nervous to get on a horse. The staff was great at explaining what to do once I was in the saddle. That sure came in handy when my horse got hangry. If it happens to you my word of advice is to stay as calm as possible. Regardless, it is possibly one of the best birthday gifts I ever received. 1,000,000% would recommend this tour for any new rider, like myself.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon, and I had originally scheduled a horseback tour on another ranch, only to find out it was for the wrong week (felt great about that). Luckily, I was able to schedule the 1 hour scenic tour at Gunstock the same day… and it all ended up being a very happy mistake! It was a bit overcast the day we went, but the trail was easy and absolutely beautiful! Our wrangler was Ashley and she is an absolute GEM of a person. 10/10 would recommend for anyone looking to do a short horseback tour on the east coast of Oahu!

It was an amazing experience. There were 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 kids (Age 7-13). For the kids and some adults it was our first time riding a horse. There is a short orientation where they explain how to get on and off your horse and how to get them to move forward or stop. They pick the horse for you based on how long your legs are. We all had very sweet horses that seemed to know what they were doing. The view is magnificent and it's a very peaceful relaxing ride through the ranch.
I think the one thing I wish they did would maybe to allow the kids to spend time petting and maybe giving the horse a treat.

My family and I booked the ride as a birthday celebration and could not have been happier with our experience. We arrived early and were greeted by each of the staff as we enjoyed the peaceful well maintained grounds as we waited. The midway ride offered stunning views of the ocean, scenic pastures and shaded trails.The horses were well maintained and safety for the riders and horses seemed to be the forefront of concern. Our ride was enhanced by the educational conversation with the guides.
I would highly recommend Gunstock and I look forward to returning to enjoy other riding experiences.

The scenery on the 90 minute scenic horse tour was beautiful! We saw an array of sights from rolling fields to a view of the ocean at the top. Braeley, Anna and Emily were our wranglers and they were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They were clearly passionate about the horses. The tour ran on time and was exactly as advertised. The free petting zoo with goats was the perfect way to pass a half hour as we waited for the other half of our party to finish their experience (an ATV tour). The horses appeared well taken care of and healthy.

Most of our group had never ridden before so the 1 hour scenic ride was perfect. We all really enjoyed it. Our wrangler was kind and professional, making sure all of the group felt safe at all times. For experienced riders it might be a bit too sedate, but for beginners it is an ideal first experience, without it being too over-protective. The scenery is beautiful and we all felt that this would be a real memory to treasure.

It was a memorable experience at the Gunstock Ranch. We booked a 90minute scenic ride but due to unexpected roadworks, we were stuck in traffic and were panicking when we called and notify them of the situation. The staff at Gunstock were very kind and found a workaround solution, enabling us to enjoy our horseriding experience.

Nalia was our guide and she was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We enjoyed hearing the stories about the ranch, its history, and its animals. Hearing Nalia talked about our horses' personalities was very entertaining as well. We loved the photos Nalia took for us, and she went the extra mile of emailing them to us. Needless to say, we were extremely grateful and appreciative of the experience we had at the Gunstock Ranch. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Oahu!

Let me just say Gunstock Ranch did not disappoint me AT ALL !!! The drive is definitely worth it but back to them. I must say THANK YOU ! for making my 12 yr. old daughter’s dream come true. My youngest daughter loves horses and has already wanted to ride on. Your organization along with my pocketbook made it possible. Look at my comment this way it was an all-hands effort where everyone benefited. Cole was beyond the best just to sit back ride Winston and listen to him share his life and experience with my family was so welcoming. Cole and his team did not make us feel like they were doing it for the money either. I could tell, just by not only talking to Cole but to the rest of the staff as well these people not only work hard but they really love what you do and let me tell you when you have people like that, that are doing it for the love and not the money the blessing just come on you more. My family loves seeing the love they have for animals in general and how friendly and above all else PATIENT they were. We have already made plans to come back for Christmas of 2023 HEY! Hawaii ain’t cheap now.
