The Waipi'o Valley is stunning and on horseback it is even better. We saw lush forest and valley floor as well as wild horses. The company provided great service and the horses were wonderful. I would definitely recommend this adventure.

They take you in a car down to the valley explaining about what you see constantly and then you ride the horses in an unbelievable landscape. The guides know what they are doing. Amazing experience.

A hat, sunblock, pants, and a closed shoe preferably with a heal. I would wear a shirt that shades your shoulders. I loved this experience both times I went.

Hi, we like to cap it at 200 but we do take people over this weight occasionally. It depends on the horses and who has their shoes, etc. If you think you may want to ride please give me a call at 8087757291. Have a wonderful... More
