The guides are super friendly and outgoing, they answered all our questions and gave us clear easy instructions on how to ride the horse. The horses are SO CLEAN and well behaved. The trail is beautiful, ocean view, breezy, and mostly shaded.

Wonderful way to experience Oahu. The horses are retired polo ponies. Mine, "Wailea," like to stop for snacks which added to the enjoyment. Mark, guide and trainer, provided just enough info and tips. Highly recommended.
