I am glad we chose to come here. The ranch is easy to find and in such a pretty spot on the island. We are regular riders but had to wait for my son to turn 7 to be able to do a trail ride. It was walking only which is fine for beginners and kids. I would have preferred... More

We are so happy that you chose to come and do a trail ride with us. We love children. We actually allow 10 year old children to ride on our advanced ride if they have enough experience so that means a few less years to wait. :) Hope to see you again soon. Mahalo More

My husband and I chose this as our wedding anniversary activity. We don't buy each other gifts, we plan outings. Every year we scuba dive, and this year since it was our fifth, I decided to tag on horse back riding. I did a price comparison and Gunstock was hands down the most affordable. I originally scheduled a one hour... More

For beginners and extreme novices taking a hour to 1.5 hour tour, you are in the right place. Experienced or have ridden before, it's better to take a private ride (cost lots more) or book at another Ranch that has other than trail trained horses. They ride in single file at all times, horses only follow one another; this means... More

We take all reviews very seriously. Good and bad. We track down each review lower than 4 stars and review each part of the experience. Unfortunately, there are not enough specific details to be able to track this down for you. Just a few clarifications are needed to this review based on the generalizations written. Gunstock is well known for... More

Me and my husband went to Oahu for our honeymoon, and it would not have been the same if it wasn't for Gunstock ranch. We took one ride in a group of 10 and one "sweet heart" ride and both of them were amazing. We got to see the nature from a whole other perspective and the rangers (Tate and... More

My daughter is 12 and a keen rider so we wanted to find somewhere for her to ride at her ability to get her money's worth. Most places are very touristy and give that impression of a numbers game. However the gunstock ranch is very different. It's got a lovely family feel to it and when my daughter rode there... More

Thank you so much for this kind review. We are so happy to hear you found a ride that met the skills of your 12-year-old​. It means so much to us to not be considered a "touristy" place because we love and work to be a place that both tourists and locals can enjoy. We hope to see you again... More
